It’s rainy season here on the west coast! Puddle jumping and splashing in the mud can be a ton of fun with the kids, but someone has to clean that mess up after. (hint: that someone is me) I am the mom that pushes my kids out the door, even in sucky weather. My four year old is still in the age group that can be waterproofed from head to toe – rain boots and a muddy buddy is his go-to wardrobe! But my 10 year old? She won’t even wear her rain boots let alone an appropriate jacket for the weather (how old do I sound?!).
