Peppa Pig is pretty popular in our house.
Both of my children have been known to stop what they're doing and watch in silence.
Don't you love it when that happens?
I'm not surprised, Peppa is rather cute.
This is one of their favourite episodes...
And almost every time it comes on Miss 4 says,
"I wish I could jump in muddy puddles."
When I was a child growing up on a dairy farm the opportunities to jump in muddy puddles were endless.
And it wasn't always just mud, if you get what I mean.
Sometimes I feel sorry for my kids, not being about to roam freely around a big country space like I did.
We live in a town with bitumen roads, concrete paths and driveways, and a green lawn.
However, there is one place where Miss 4 has the opportunity to jump in muddy puddles.
And ironically it's one of our biggest grievances.
We have a street at the front of our block and we also have a lane at the back.
The lane is supposed to be maintained by the council but they have overlooked it for years and it has become very rough and full of potholes. We have compained about it but nothing has been done to fix it.
But, do you know what?
After a bit of rain, which we have had recently, it's full of muddy puddles!
And perfect for Miss 4 to jump in.
So today she did.
And as you can see, she loved it!!
As an added bonus this morning, we also got caught out in the rain.
Oh, what fun!
