And I discovered that having a change of clothes (including socks) is definitely worth the space it takes up.
Since that day, I made it my mission to find rain boots for MiniM.E. that weren't more expensive than shoes I would buy myself. Easier said than done. I finally found some online at the Children's Place and they were on clearance. Plus a 20% coupon and I was only out $12.
MiniM.E. kept asking to jump in the puddles. I told her I ordered her some rain boots and they were coming in the mail. So all weekend she kept saying "rainbow boots comin mail!" "jump puddles!". So cute.
She was more than a little excited when they finally arrived. Since she hated wearing winter boots, I assumed she would be excited to see them but I'd never get them on her (part of the reason I couldn't see spending more than $15 or so on a pair), but as soon as we got them out of the box she insisted on wearing them around the house. Even with a few nasty spills (they're a bit big and not very flexible) she was still so "'cited!". I made her a puddle to jump in the backyard. Not exactly puddle jumping weather, but she didn't seem to mind.
|MiniM.E. said "hearing airplane"|
|can't go outside with out a ride on the swing!|
|huh, that's pretty tasty|
Just waiting on spring...
