Pluviophile– (n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. If you think this applies to you, then you definitely enjoy that specific scent that radiates from the ground. You find peace in the sound of the pitter-patter of the rain drops hitting the pavement, but most importantly you don’t mind getting wet!
If you like the rain just as much as Harper here, you should be friends
Harper already knows what she loves at a young age and that’s rain. She loves it so much in fact that she can’t get enough of it. It just happens to be the first drop of summer rain and who better than to share the moment with dad?
“Well Harper, you wanna go out in the rain? You wanna go out in the rain?”
Would you just look at how adorable she is!
She can’t help, but just stay fixated on the rain as her father carries her out into the elements. You’ll see little Harper slowly break into a contagious smile. Dad breaks into a quick run into the rain and a few circles as they enter back into the garage. You can clearly tell Harper’s smile and giggle explains it all.
Now toddlers are very curious by nature. And instead of controlling them and restricting their experiences, why not join them and educate them about it? Let them play around and get dirty, or like this cool dad, run around with them in the rain?
That tiny brain is paired with a big heart so better be sure to give them a ton of fun experiences to make sure they develop well. These tiny humans need a healthy dose of curiosity and love. Like a house being built, they need a good foundation before the whole thing is put up and finished.
And yes, the summer rain. There’s just something about the falling of rain in the heat of the season. There’s a lovely smell coming from a dry, scorched land that evokes a bit of drama from the human soul. Memories come alive, feelings long forgotten resurface for some, and it really is an enjoyable moment with your favorite drink.
Petrichor, is what they call it.
Milk for little Harper, definitely. She turns around towards the rain and reaches out with her tiny arms, letting out a very toddler-like sound.
“More? You want more rain? Okay, one more time, here we go.”
Her excitement is priceless. Harper’s eyes light up at the prospect of running out with dad once more, and they do! She lets out a little squeal of joy the moment they run back inside but then something even better happens.
Dad sets her down so she can run around in the rain herself
It is such a touching sight to see father and daughter hand in hand having a quick walk around out there. Such a cool dad! This is one moment Harper will relive when she’s older thanks to modern technology and social media.
With over 6.1 million views, viewers touched upon the moment too.
“I don’t know if this toddler’s reaction was to the rain or to the amazing father who was holding her. If more father’s were like you, this would be a much, much better world.”
We think both.
“I love that the father made this experience a beautiful one, the girl will love the rain for the rest of her life!”
These kinds of moments are priceless. They are memory builders for both. These small fleeting moments create memories for life. You’ll find yourself that if you take the time to be present, it’s these times that will really bring a smile to your face.
