Did you have fun?

I love you my dear
About the mud,
Never fear.
I know I told you no to play
In puddles,
But I was young once too.
I know how raindrops
Rippling in those small
Round sidewalk ponds
Call out to little feet.
How hard it is to resist
Their cry, “jump in me!”
See how easily it washes off?
When we have cleaned your toes
We will clean your shoes.
First is no barrier
To the love I have for you.
Did you have fun?
Now let me see you smile.
