I have the coolest friends...who have such intuitive nature about great ways to engage their children.
After Hurricane Isaac passed through Missouri, my friend posted these photos of her fully clothed daughter launching into a ditch full of water and mud. No worries about holes in the jeans or mud stains on the shirt. It hasn't rained in months so why not celebrate it and enjoy it...and bond with your child in the process!
I haven't decided exactly what educational component this promotes other than joy with your child...which is a pretty darn important part of life. I would show her mom sliding as well, but I promised her I wouldn't show her in any compromising positions. :)
And just in case any of you are thinking, "I'm way too old for that." No excuses! My friend is 42...which gives me even more respect for her as a parent. Get out there and surprise your kids! Shock them. They'll never know what to expect from you...and that may not be such a bad thing! :)
What's something fun you do with your child? "Share" a photo with us and tell us about it so we can get some ideas, too!
