We've been getting lots of rain this fall ... not complaining at all, because we're sometimes in drought situations. Gavin loves the rain and not for all the obvious reasons. He loves the rain, because when it finally stops, the world is his oyster and all of those beautiful puddles are his pearls. He gets SO wet and SO muddy, but what's a mom to do? You certainly can't deprive your son of puddles ... come on! Fact is, I'd like to join him sometimes.
