Once in a while, quite often actually, I think it’s good to just let kids be kids, regardless of my personal feelings on cleanliness, order, and things along those lines. Yes, we have a huge pothole in our driveway. Yes, the kids have assisted in its growth more than any other natural factor. Yes, Theodore does have his boots on the wrong feet, but it didn’t slow him or his imagination down at all. And, yes, I let them get soaking wet, dirty, and a little bit cold while they let their imaginations run down their river. They played and played, enjoying the adventures only kids can create. I laughed with them and enjoyed the purity of kids being kids.
