Is it really a big deal?

To often I find myself, quickly telling E to cut it out, or stop what she is doing, or correcting her.. until lately... I have been thinking about the things that small children are stopped from doing, or told no too, and I'm not talking about dangerous things like running in the street, or touching the grill when its on, I mean things like splashing water, or squirting your clothes with a squirt gun, or shredding up paper. The things that adults may sometimes view as a waste, or dirty, or a distraction might actually be the very thing that they need.

SO I have had a complete change of heart on how I deal with some things.. I mean its summer what is really wrong with Emma getting her clothes soaked in water because we didnt have time to change into a bathing suit or playing in some dirt... these are moment that should be enjoyed as a child!!!
