I’m trying to be a more “fun” mom. The boys and I ran a few grocery shopping errands in the rain the other night. They were so, so good and as we were unloading it stopped raining and they wanted to play in the puddles. My initial reaction was, “No way! I don’t want to have to give you a bath tonight and if you puddle splash then you will definitely need a bath.” But thankfully, fun mom stepped in and said,”Let them play! What harm is a little mud and water going to do!”
They had a blast:) While I unloaded they splashed and laughed. They also unfortunately skipped rocks all over our neighbors driveway so we had to pick up the rocks before going in for bathtime. Even that was fun though. I think our neighbors might have thought I was crazy, but I am so glad I let them.
Hopefully these are the memories that will stick and not my meltdowns:)
