A Wonderful Sight: Grown-Ups Playing

I try to balance my blog posts to cover child development, current issues, ideas for support, and simple, feel-good stories.  Today is a day for a smile!  The last time it rained I noticed how many adults were wearing tall, whimsical, rainboots.  While these are usually reserved for children, I’m so glad to see this trend for adults.   And then I saw something that made me even happier.  A full-grown adult woman, no children in tow, stopped at a corner, looked down, and jumped with her tall rainboots into the biggest puddle she could find!  She had a huge smile on her face and was clearly pleased with herself.

Give yourself permission every now and again to do something impulsive or out-of-character, purely because it will put a smile on your face.  You deserve it!
