Quick, what's the weather forecast?

Z. got some new boots this week. They are purple, with white daisies on them, and just like when she got her ruby slippers, she had to get out of bed once and put her boots on to clomp to the top of the stairs and ask for water. Apparently having cool new shoes makes her too excited to sleep, and very thirsty.

I let her wear them to school Wednesday (the first day she was at school after she got them), but not yesterday. "Only if it rains, or we go down to the creek," I said, in my best mom-lays-down-the-rules voice.

This morning she woke up and said "Is it supposed to rwain today? After school, I want to go down to da cwreek."

I hope you get some of that rain, then. :)

I have a picture of my dear child asleep in her crib in her yellow rain boots.

We were in a store yesterday and Curious Girl wanted purple rain boots in the worst way, purple flowered boots that match a raincoat and an umbrella, too. "I want to always get a matching rain set for my birthday," she solemnly informed me.

I love that. It's marvelous the way such small things can veritably become the crown jewels.
