I used to sit on the sprinkler and giggle. I splashed around in little pink bathing suits in tropical printed blow up pools. I made mud pies. I made messes. I learned to find calm in the water and the earth.
So now I wander outside to find her with the faucet on, ankle deep in mud, rocks and mischief and I just sit down and watch.
It never hurt anyone to learn freedom by tasting it.
