She's got that right.

Today, the weather was my favorite. 52 degrees and sunny, with just a bit of a breeze. And let me tell you, it's MUCH easier to be outside with an (almost) two & an (almost) four year old than with a one and a three year old. It's like heating soup on the stove versus in the microwave. On the stove, you may have less mess, but that's because you have to sit thisclose to catch it when it boils, whereas in the microwave you may have to clean up when it's done, but you can
w a l k a w a y and let it cook for a while on its own.

Anyway. Ben has FINALLY put on his rainboots. The child does not like to wear boots. The first time, anyway. We went through this with his snowboots, too. He refuses to put them on until you hold him down, kicking and screaming, and force them on. Then, THEN, when he discovers what he can do while wearing them, he gets this big grin and won't take them off.

He's into wearing the rainboots now, since when in them Mommy doesn't freak out when he splashes in the puddles. This evening, Aaron was out with them. Ben was playing so intently that he sat down while in the puddle.

Daddy was dragging him up the driveway to get changed, when Leah asked, "What happened?"
Dad: "Ben sat in the puddle."
Leah: "That's not good."
