One of my all time favorite childhood memories is of my mom telling me and a friend of mine to go out and play in the summer rain. All my other friends were confined to their apartments and they watched us with envy - after all we got to get all muddy and soaking wet! My mom is the best mom ever. In the winter, I was allowed to lick icicles and even bring them home! When I have a child, I will always first think - what would my mom do?
