Asking "Please try not to get too wet" before taking a child out to stomp in puddles is probably one of the more stupid things a parent can say. I said it, and realized the stupidity about five minutes out the door.
We may not have any snow down here but we are (almost) making up for it with wet-winter fun. Lots of rain in the past few days has meant lots of puddles, and new kid-sized umbrellas purchased this weekend meant we didn't even have to wait for the rain to stop today to go exploring. A puddle adventure walk, I think Amy called it.
Wet pants for some, good fun for all.
