Belle isn't too bothered by it, and Elena gets a kick out of it.
"Mama! I'm walking Belle!" She'll say.
And I nod, and smile, and play along.
"Yes you are! Good job!" I'll say.
And she'll smile.
Then she'll notice a puddle in the driveway...
"Put your puddle boot on and go jump!"
Jumpy jump jump jump!

Santa's getting her a new pair of puddle boots for next spring when she outgrows these leopard ones.
