It was a play'n in the rain kind of day.
Meet my little Rain Boy.
This kid was made for a play'n in the rain kind of day. In all actuality, he wasn't even phased the least little bit by the drops of rain that pelted his hair & had his clothes sopping within minutes. Give this boy the outdoors, some speed beneath his feet & some wind in his sails & he's good to go. It's one of the things I love most about him--he's tough. He's not wavered or shaken by the elements around him. He takes the little moments that have been given to him & he runs like the wind with them. I love that.
Catching raindrops on his tongue--is this a picture of pure childhood or what?
I need to do it more often. Say forget it all & take time to play. To stir up some fun out of storm clouds, to tip my head back & catch a few raindrops on my tongue, to take the moments I've been given with this little boy & his tender little life & run like the wind with them.
A friendly little reminder to all of us with little ones. I'll be hanging this one on my fridge where I can be reminded every single day.
From what I hear, these rainclouds have plans of sticking around for a bit.
Which reminds me...I'd better toss that pile of wet clothes in the dryer. There's a little rain boy waking from his afternoon nap & I bet he's gonna be raring to go for round two of play'n in the rain.
Have a happy week--embrace the sogginess!
