I think there is a general misunderstanding out there in the big world.
Mostly I hear it from older men and women in the grocery store.
"Where is the rain??" they ask.
"You're all prepared for a big storm!" they say.
I just want to set this straight:
When you're three, a raincoat and rain boots are not necessarily because it is raining.
It is equally valid to wear a raincoat and rain boots because there are puddles out there that are begging to be made into rain by busy preschooler feet.
It is also equally valid to wear a raincoat and rain boots because three-year-olds know that rain coats look cool and mommies know that rain boots are one of the first things toddlers can put on with total independence.
So, without further ado, a little celebration of all the puddle-jumping, raincoat-sporting spring days to come in the next couple of months.
