Ever let go and allow yourself to become a little kid again? Ever just let yourself run through the sprinklers fully clothed because a 3 year-old asked you to? I had almost forgotten how much fun it was to run through the sprinklers and get wet just for the pleasure of it all, especially when it's hot.
Tuesday we ran through the sprinklers for the second time in Mirna's life. We had a lot of fun. Last week when we tried it she was too scared to hardly even get wet until I held her hand and ran through with her. After that she was willing to approach a sprinkler and even dance in the water. This time we had the run of the entire back lawn. It was a blast. Mirna has overcome her fear of the sprinklers getting her wet!
It was nice to indulge in a little bit of the exuberant behavior of a small child and take pleasure in the simple act of getting wet to cool down. ☺
