(Almost) Worldess Wednesday: Ziggy the Puddle Jumper

My son Ziggy, like many (most?) toddlers is puddle obsessed. Lucky for him we have a perma-puddle in our back yard where there is a nice little mud pit despite my arduous efforts to eradicate it with grass.

When Ziggy sees the giant puddle at his sisters' school he goes completely and utterly bonkers.



At least someone is enjoying all this rain.

And for once, I decided to be a good sport, and jumped on it along with him.

I have no idea what the other moms thought about this, but my kid found it hilarious and I guess that's all that matters anyway.


And you? Do you puddle jump or puddle avoid?

Well I think your silver boots are awesome! I have blue ones with clouds all over them. But silver is definitely cooler.

Sometimes you just have to let go and splash.

I love your boots! I don't have boots like that and neither do my kids. When we get big puddles they just get soaked LOL!!

Puddle jumping is timeless. (we have a spot in our yard like that too, lol)

Depends, if I have rain boots, I jump in the puddles otherwise, I am in avoidance mode.

Your building great memories! Who cares what the other mom's think! Hehehe... Besides, kids are only kids for a little one. Enjoy it while ya can. They grow up just way too fast... sigh...

Take care!

I tried to get my daughter interested in rain boots but it was a no-go :) Happy puddle jumping! Thanks for stopping by my own WW!

I love it - especially the fact that you joined in on the puddle-jumping. I've done that with Princess Nagger - the peals of laughter are the best! :)

I hate puddles, especially in NYC. They are just dirty! Harlan on the other hand, loves them!

When stress is in the air, good puddle jumping is needed. With all the rain, we need to have outdoor fun!

Jill said...

What is it with kids and puddles?

No, I'm not much of a puddle jumper but with my Wellies I'll occasionally step into one as I'm crossing the street.

I actually let The Nut go crazy in some playground puddles this morning even though she was in jeans and sneakers. The other moms were all screaming at their kids to keep them OUT of the water and shooting me dirty looks for setting a bad example. What's the big friggin' deal??
