It seems to me that the very word "puddles" is reminiscent with childhood memories. Of little boys discovering their love for getting dirty, of embarking on an adventure all their own. I have two boys now and I think I am beginning to realize and embrace that unique aspect of them. They have such an innate desire to explore, to discover, to conquer. They are teaching me to squelch the desire to think ahead to the time and energy involved in cleaning up these "adventures" but rather, to focus on the joy and fun of being "in the puddle" right now.
