Today we were outside and three different times it started to rain. My first instinct was RUN. Next I remembered that no less than 10 times that morning I had already said “ don’t dump the water on your head.” The children aren’t afraid to get wet. There was no lightning or unsafe conditions. I decided to just be present and watch the children experience pure joy. So many times as adults we hijack our kids joy because it feels like the adult responsible thing to do. I challenge us all to chill – play in the rain, drink dirty water ( ok maybe not that ) and experience JOY with our littlest people while we can.
