"Toby quit splashing into the puddles" Mom urged as she walked with his tiny hand enclosed in her big palm on a rainy day while holding an umbrella with the other side that covered mostly her toddler inspite of him wearing a rain jacket.
Toby paused for a bit then looked up at her and after a mischievous wink continued to spatter water until they reached their car.
The mom was quick to put her son in his car seat. She removed his boots to check his socks.
"Dry socks!" she sighed in relief then muttered, "Good investment!"
