just got ara a new pair of rain-boots and learned a valuable lesson. little kids don’t forget. oh, they’ll need constant reminders about not using ALL the chopsticks at the restaurant to “build stuff” or need a few threats about feeding baby sister Gobstoppers (but saving the green ones for themselves). but they will not need any help recalling that mommy promised they could go puddle-splashing once those bright green boots were on.
made me chuckle seeing ara’s hesitation. i’m sure she was incredulous, “i can’t believe mommy is letting me do this…must be some sort of trick!”
eventually she went for it. again and again…and again.
” “J” is for jump” was a leap of joy!
