HAPPINESS

John had
Great Big
Waterproof
Boots on;
John had a
Great Big
Waterproof
Hat;
John had a
Great Big
Waterproof
Mackintosh --
And that
(Said John)
Is
That.

AE got her first pair of rainboots today.  I took her to the park

after school (so that we could also throw the ball for Polly),

and she sploshed around in the puddles of the sand volleyball court.

Just as proud as she could be.  She delighted in asking me, "Mama,

come with me?" so that I would say, "I don't have magic rainboots

on so I can't splash in the puddles!" Then she'd beam so bright I

thought the sky would clear just to give Miss Sunshine some space.
