This has been a rough week for our Family and Friends. We are on a roller coaster ride.
So, when out of no where today when I was getting out of the shower for work and it was POURING rain, I had an Idea.
No; a Thought.
No; a Plan.
I threw a headband in my dripping wet hair, threw on shorts and a shirt (yes, & skivvies) and ran through the hall to the top of the stairs. The kiddos thought I had lost it. They both wondered aloud what in the world crazy Mommy was doing now.
I teased them, “I’ll beat you outside to the puddles!” I ran down the stairs and out the front door knowing they were hot on my heels. The rain had slowed but our road still had somewhat of small river heading past our house. I ran out to it and surprised the kiddos by jumping right into it and splashing water on my shorts.
They took a couple of seconds to react to this craziness but then joined right in. We played in the rain puddles for about 15 minutes. All the while laughing and giggling and just being silly.
Spontaneous, silly, crazy, no nonsense, not a care in the world, FUN.
