Oh yes, children hate to be confined by windows, don't they?

My middle son was always drawn to any water -- that's probably what he would have been thinking, too!

Peggy said...

My kids heard those tiny voices all the time.
Have a good evening.

And they can concentrate that hard, that's for sure -- well, when they want to that is!! Great one for the day! Hope you have a great week!

Well, her mum's voice is probably going to respond with a resounding, NO!" Most mother's just don't appreciate their child's need to commune with the rain.

The call of the wild and outdoors....or magic? First timer here, hope you'll stop by The Cafe for mine.

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh no Emma! 'Come away O human child, To the waters and the wild' -- did you know that I live not so far from Yeats' grave? Now I'll have that poem in my head all night LOL

I hope Mom will not let her out, I don't think those voices are Good Voices.

hope said...

I hear a mother mouthing "No!" before her child can ask. :)

Nice job.
