When we’re walking down a hallway, Lillian likes to push in front and walk ahead, saying “I be the leader!”
Today when it was time to go to child care, it was raining lightly. Rain is quite a novelty in Melbourne this summer.
Lillian put on her plastic raincoat with a hood over her head. At that point, she insisted we walk. OK… so we walk all the way, with Lillian stepping in most puddles. Her sandals were soaked and started making squishy noises when she walked.
I’d say “Don’t step in the water, silly!”
She’d look up at me, very pleased with herself. “I’m a silly water stepper!”
