Re: Do you let your toddlers get dirty/jump in puddles?
Generally, yes. We take many walks every day and often neighbors have their sprinklers running. It is common to return from a walk with wet clothes. hehe.
That being said, there are times where I don't want him to run through puddles/mud/water and that's usually when we're going to run errands shortly or things like that.
One of my sons favorite times already this summer was when they flushed the hydrants on our street. Every little boy was out running and riding bikes in the running water. They had so much fun!
Wife to Bob, and mommy to Ben and Matt. Love my boys!
