.Momentous Monday.

Photobucket

I'm not that kind of Mommy.

You know the one.

Fun.

Easy going.

Care-free.

Go-with-the-flow.

Spontaneous.

Crazy.

Goofy.

At least when left to my own natural tendencies I am none of the above.

But in an effort to make memorable moments for my children and their childhood, I stretch myself to be some of the above.

So on Wednesday when it started down pouring, I sent my children outside. In the rain. Barefoot.

I let them run and play and splash. And get {really} dirty. And make a mud hole in our yard.

And we loved every single minute.

My own tendency is to not be that kind of mom either, but like you, I try to let go of my inhibitions at times to make great memories for my children. It is always worth it! :)

Aw yay! Stuff like this always seems to be what sticks out best in their memories! I think the girls make it a point to have a least one good mud pit a year :)

Oh, that does look like fun! I'm sure the kids had a blast.

I am the same type of mom. It is so hard for me to just let go and have fun. I'll try to remember this when the monsoons hit here!
