My dad HATES the rain

My mom says so too.

It doesn't bug me much

And probably not you.

He says rain makes things

Squishy, cold, and wet.

If he weren't so old

He'd see different, I bet.

"Let's go Puddle Jumping," says Dad

WHAT! How can that be?

As much as Dad doesn't like rain

That's how much he likes me.

Puddle Jumps

It was a wet and blustery Winter's day when I wrote PUDDLE JUMPS.

And Puddle Jumping was a favorite rainy day activity for my kids.

'Cause they got to go jump and splash in the biggest and deepest puddles they could find.

With boots on, of course.
