The little guy has discovered a love of spring. Yesterday his daycare was closed so we hung out together. He was thrilled to be able to walk around and explore without being stuck in a big snowsuit and mountains of snow he couldn’t climb. We made the most of the awesome whether and walked to daddy’s office to bring him some supper (it’s income tax season so Mr. Accountant has been needing to put in a whole lot of extra hours).
I’d brought the small stroller so that I could put the little guy in if he got tired of walking. Of course, Mr. Independant had other ideas and pushed the stroller for almost the full half-kilometer that separates our house from the daddy’s workplace.
I also got him to try on his new rain boots. Oh boy, such joy! His face was priceless when he heard the splashing noise it made when he explored the small puddle in our driveway. After that, there was no stopping him: he decided to explore each and every puddle in our street.
Of course, “exploring” also meant getting up, close and personal with the water by kneeling and sitting in it *facepalm*.
And by the time he was ready to go back indoors, he was both very wet and very pleased with himself.
