Today we took Raccoon to a large park near our house and let him run through mud puddles to his heart's content. It's been raining so much and kind of dismal, but after an early shower this morning, the sun came out. And it's Carnaval after all, right?
It was one of those perfect moments, watching him run through the puddles with my husband chasing after him. Their laughter was a beautiful thing. I even brought the camera, hoping to catch some of the magic, but as soon as Raccoon saw it, he said, "No pictures, Mama!" and ran away. Wait a minute, I thought that wasn't supposed to start until adolescence! We still had a great time and even if I don't have his big grin recorded on camera, it's etched in my heart.
