Warm Weather Fun



A couple of days ago we had some great warm weather in town. I think it was 80 degrees. It was time to clean out the hamster cage which always includes the outdoors and water hose. My twins asked me if they could play in the water as it was so warm out. "Sure," I said, have fun. They had a blast. Truthfully the mom in me kind of wanted to say no, I knew the water would be freezing and 80 degree's really isn't that hot. I was given a poem when my kids were born about trying to say "yes" as much as possible. This was one of those times I thought that I needed to say "yes" even though "no" came to mind first. I appreciate that poem as it really has made me think before saying no.

I would love to have that poem. I am also a mom of twins (5 years old a boy and a girl). I have 3 older children (28, 25, and 23) and no was a word I used often when I was a younger mom. As an older mom, I now see and know that the word yes needs to be said a lot more than the word no to children growing up!! Thanks for sharing the pics.
