The Puddle, a Lesson
Dear Sabrina, I loved watching you splash in the puddle by your crabapple tree. The puddle was huge and you knew exactly what to do with it. You were so happy, laughing, splattering muddy water everywhere. I almost stopped this moment from happening, reaching out to you as you took your sandals off, starting to say no, sweetie, no, no, oh, don't splash, oh, you're going to get dirty. But luckily you ignored me and so I reached for the camera instead. The water must have felt so good on your feet. I promise to always let you splash in puddles. Next time I'll even join you. Love, Mommy.
