Muddy puddles in (little) muddy puddles

My toddler loves wearing wellies. And why wouldn't she - they are meant for puddle-jumping which is the best thing since sliced bread as far as she is concerned.




Polka-dot shirt Marimekko / polka dot jeans Benetton (similar here) / boots Muddy Puddles

After a big rain fall we often go out puddle hunting for some puddle jumping. No puddle is deemed too insignificant. It doesn't matter if it is on the side of the road, or in the park. It doesn't matter if it gives just one splash before it is gone, or thoroughly manages to soak your bum and your mum. It is all good.



So, on our puddle hunting exploration we found a little puddle in the park.  I thought it was far too small and the splash far too unsatisfactory. But my daughter zoned in on it and there was no way to get her walk further in a search for a better puddle.

Being happy with what you have and finding joy from the little things in life, I guess that is something that many adults could learn from. I know I could. 

It is all about those little things in life. Little things like getting new wellingtons from Muddy Puddles and immediately insisting on wearing them. And then insisting on wearing them every day (must be a very comfortable pair!). They were sturdy enough for a long walk in the forest,  with a good grip on the soles so no muddy paths stopped us. Being quite long on the legs I am sure will serve us well and last several growth spurts. After much, practically everyday, use and much bashing around the house they have lasted in a beautiful condition, with the Louboutin-like splash of red still brightening the soles for those gloomy, muddy, welly-wearing days.

Here's to many more puddle jumping adventures to come! *splash!*

  6. oooh double dots. Just a fabulous combination. I've got to be honest I've never been as excited to see autumn as I have since having a child who is obsessed with puddles. A good pair of wellies are now an absolute essential for us both. Tandem puddle jumping!!

  9. Love her big grin in the photos. Jumping in muddy puddles is one of the beautiful and simple pleasures of childhood - I have to confess that it's one I'm quite enjoying reliving again with my children! :-)

    1. Snow stomping is great (although I gotta say, wellies can be a bit too cold for that - better get proper snow boots if you expect a lot of snow stomping!). Hope you have a good time on your holiday! :)

  19. Puddle jumping is the best thing!! I remember, when I was little, being obsessed with a book about a girl called Sarah (ironically) who had rainbow wellies and went puddle jumping! How cute are these photos? She looks so adorable in the wellies and the dotty prints. Lovely outfits and you're right, it's all about appreciating the smaller things in life :) Thanks so much for linking up and apologies for the delayed post holiday response! #weekendministyle
