Rain, Rain Go Away?

The kids were so excited when I told them they could go outside and play in the rain. Ella looked at me like I had lost my mind.

Here's how the conversaion went:
Ella: Can we play in the rain?
Mom: No.
Ella: But we want to play in the rain.
Mom: No.
Ben: Why?
Mom: thinking...sigh...hmmmm...

I sat there thinking and something Granpda had said to me over and over came to mind. I could hear him telling me again "if there isn't a good reason to say no, then say yes". So that's just what I did. They got dressed and I gave them each got an umbrella. They had so much fun. It was worth the wet clothes and messy feet when they came in.
