Ok it is raining and ds wants to play out, he suggested the play centre instead. But it is so hot he has sweat dripping down his face from messy about in the house and personally i would rather him just play out in the rain. (well today anyway). its too stuffy in the play centres and the rain would keep him cool whilst he is going crazy with energy and activity. But am I being unreasonable?

no let him out!!!

playing out in the humid rain is something all kids should enjoy!

God no, play centres are the spawn of the devil. Send him out with an brolly grin

Out in the rain is the best option - also means no need for bath! It is a win win situation IMO.

I decided she was too old to take photos - she reverted to toddlerdom and rolled round in the paddling pool - it was incredibly sweet!

4yo and half 4 is generally best time as it is quieter plus then i can be lazy pick up tea on way home (6pm). Nope he is still happily collecting snails in the rain whislt auntie is having her poison stick (i have been informed) DOesnt want tea he's too busy. So MN for another 20mins before willing victim babysitter is disappearing. a lovely afternoon that i suspect will be follwed by bedtime from hell. Far too stuffy!

In this heat is is tempting to heat out into rain bathing suit clad just to cool down. I suffer in the heat.
