Its been hell on earth for most parents this half term. With all the excitement and most likely over indulgence in sugar from the Jubilee celebrations, combined with the appalling weather most of us have had to endure. For many of us it will be a big sigh of relief come Monday morning.
Yesterday, after one fight too many I decided to do something I had been promising the twins FOREVER ! Lets go puddle jumping !
So we did.
tentative paddling outside the house to start off, will mummy really let us jump in puddles ?
oh yes I will !
I had actually forgotten how much fun you can have doing the simple things in life, the free things, the things little boys just LOVE to do.
People actually slowed down their cars driving past us in the park. Have we really become so indoctrinated in our "stay indoors" mentality when it rains ? Some smiled, some frowned, some laughed .
WE had a wonderful time, got absolutely soaking wet and filthy
Might actually be just a little sad when the rain goes away. (well, maybe not) Role on the sunshine and time to climb those trees.........
