Children and puddles

As grown ups, while walking on the road, especially during the rainy season, we are careful to avoid the puddles that are formed by the rain.  We are cautious not to soil our footwear and clothes.  But children have altogether a different reasoning! Now what that reason is I'm not sure. But children invariably find puddles.  Not only do they wade through them, but they have to make a splash!  It just cannot be otherwise.  The joy of having 'achieved' this feat is great. And if prevented by the elders (almost in the nick of time), the look of dissatisfaction on their faces will melt any monster.

There is evidently a hidden magnetic attraction between a child's eyes/mind and the puddles... something that eventually disappears by the time we grow.
