just me and my puddle…

I was jogging in the rain, and came across a Mom and child. She was standing near the path, and her son was sitting in this puddle… watching ripples form when his stick tapped the surface.

She knew there would be extra work to get him into dry clothes once they got home… but it was worth it to see his wonder.

When’s the last time you encouraged someone to explore, get messy, break something that you’d need to fix… knowing that the value of their development far outweighed the cost of your cleanup?

Staying clean is easy, and boring. We need to explore more… and see what the ripples can teach us!
