There are times when the expression on a child's face is priceless.
I met a friend at the park today; it was quite hot out, and no trees at the playground. So we took a little walk; this particular park has a splash pad, which we have never been on before.
Oh, how I wish I had my camera with me when I told my 4 yr. old to go play in the water. With her clothes on. She had to ask a couple of times to make sure I was serious. She checked again to see that I really did want them to play on the splash pad in their shorts and shirts, without a towel.
Sometimes a mom just has to be spontaneous and put a (good) twist in the child's world.
