As long as it isn’t immoral or illegal as a grandmother I choose to let my grandchildren experience joy in messy ways. Our grandson had the best time ever sitting in this big puddle and as a mom I probably wouldn’t have let him get in it. Of course I thought he was only going to wade in it and he had shorts on but he plopped himself down to sit in the middle of it. How often do adults by pass the joy of a situation like wading in a puddle or going outside to watch a rainbow or sunset? I’m trying to notice and enjoy these God given blessings.
