I can remember seeing kids jumping in puddles and having a whale of time. Smiling parents looked on and not a word of reprimand was said. Wellies of all colours and patterns were obviously worn, and sometimes, even the parents joined in.
Those were the days. Some kids aren’t allowed to be kids and have fun anymore, having to keep clean or look after their designer footwear.
Hubby and I don’t exactly jump in puddles, but we do tend to walk in the shallow ones to clean our shoes, especially if we’ve been on the beach or the local grass has recently been cut. We would love to jump sometimes, but our knees just couldn’t stand the shock!
