Mud Puddle Hunt

On a normal day, Lucas is an insanely crazy pretty intense kid. Combine some rainy days with his nebulizer treatments which are basically inhaled steroids and he was literally bouncing off the furniture this morning.

So, when the rain let up, we put on his new firefighter rain boots and some already mud-stained pants and went on a "Mud Puddle Hunt." I made it clear that I didn't want to get wet or muddy but that he could jump as much as his little heart desired. First, we walked up and down our block. Since we're at the top of a little hill, we didn't encounter any good puddles. Next, we headed to the park. Jackpot!

After about 45 minutes of solid mud puddle hunting, finding, jumping and splashing, we headed home. He got stripped down at the door (I had left an old towel there before we left), headed straight up to the tub for a quick wash, ate lunch and is now sound asleep.

I can't remember how well I did with my resolutions last spring but I'd say we're off to a great start this spring!


  1. The more I read about Lucas, the more I think he and Finn will be like two peas in a pod!

  2. I want to jump in mud puddles too! What a treat!


Comments make my day. Thanks!
