It seems a bit out-of-place writing a blog post about the rain when most of the UK has had a mini heat wave and lots of nice spring weather but I am going to anyway. The Robot loves to splash. The thunder-storm that hit us on Saturday bought some rain. It made me realise how lucky I am to have the Robot.
He loves to be outside, he’s happy to explore his own surroundings, he really is just such a lovely little lad that more often than not is a pleasure to hang out with!
So, when it rained on Saturday, the kind of rain drops that are marble sized, I let him go out, there was no stopping him. He enjoyed himself, he got wet, when he came in he got changed. It’s the experiences like this, dancing and splashing in the rain, that I hope he will remember and shape him for the future.
This reminded me of a recent puddle splashing adventure visiting Gran’s house. It had rained all morning, the kind of rain that just gets you wet, we had exhausted all inside fun activities and had been stuck inside far too long.
We put on our water proofs and wellies and went on a search for puddles… Easily found long the canal path:
A new game of tree twanging was discovered too. The Robot loved this because it made all the rain fall over us:
We had a good hour of fresh air fun, wandering around the block and another memory in the bank. I think my Mum had a good time too!!
So next time it rains and you think let’s stay in so we don’t get wet. Just think twice, what is the worst that can happen? Go and make your own memories and stop being stir crazy inside just go splash splash in puddles and dance in the rain!!
