They Danced Like No One Was Watching

Dan was late coming home from work. Really late. About three and a half hours late. I was very eager for him to come home. After dinner, I gave each of the girls an ice cream cone and took them out front to wait for their father to arrive.

It started to rain. It was a light rain for about 2 minutes, and then it really poured. Instead of rushing for cover, my babies danced.

I was pleased. Some of the neighbours were less than thrilled (and even expressed their distaste). Too bad. These are my kids. They were happy. And too soon they will run from the rain instead of towards it.  So, I grabbed my camera and let them dance.

your neighbours expressed that you shouldn't let your kids dance in the rain? are you kidding?!

Sadly, I'm not kidding. Here in The 'Hood we like our yards fenced, our front doors all painted white, and our children inside when it's raining. I buck the norm here. Sigh. Remember my motto? "It matters not what they think of me, but what I think of them".
