As adults, busy in the humdrum of life, we often forget to cherish the little happy moments life gives us to make memories. Something that children embrace much more easily. Actor, puppeteer, poet and theatre marketer Elan James—who goes by @elanjames.1 on Instagram—posted a video of his son on a rainy day to drive the point home. The text overlay read, "Adults: What a miserable day. Children:..." The video featured a little boy who happily roamed in the garden in a blue raincoat. At the beginning of the video, the boy stood at their backyard door as his dad asked him, "Do you want to come inside?" The boy shook his head and said no. Also, he closed the door from outside. The dad said, "Okay, off you go."

The boy looked like he was having the time of his life in the rain, going around the greenhouse and looking at the flowers in their garden. The dad captioned the post, "The weather is never miserable, we are." The child enjoying the weather was indeed an adorable thing to watch. People took to the comments to express their happiness at witnessing the child enjoying the rain.

We could all learn from this little one." @2p0ints commented, "Bro said, 'Close the door… you're letting all the good air in the house!'" @nilokdng shared, "We Germans say: Es gibt kein schlechtes Wetter, es gibt nur schlechte Kleidung. Means: There is no bad weather. It's just bad clothing." @queen_aoleon expressed, "There's a very interesting episode of 'The Hidden Brain podcast' titled 'Parents keep out!' It talks about how the development of children varies based on the interventions of parents. The less parents hover, the more children learn, explore, and live in an imaginative world."

@cjuggo72 remarked, "Wow. Love that. It's not the weather, it's our outlook. I'm gonna keep that in mind, although I do love the blue skies and sunshine." @rjc41965 narrated, "When my son was 2 he wanted to go outside on a snowy day. I couldn't join him but said he could go on his own. I told him to 'stay close to the house'….. for half an hour, he pulled his little sled around the foundation of the house…. He was so cute! I finally told him he could slide down a drift near the driveway! I sent the dogs out to keep him company. He had the time of his life!"

In a similar story, a son sewed a shirt for his dad all by himself. The dad was excited and praised the style of the shirt as well as its design. Also, he asked his son if he could try it on and wore it for dinner that night. The son agreed and shared that he got some help to make the shirt but did most of the work himself. The boy was quite happy with his work and looked even more encouraged by his dad's enthusiastic reaction. The dad told his son, "You're so talented." In the caption of the TikTok video, the creator @daddyfiles wrote, "Sam made me a shirt! Wow." The man also asked his son several questions about how he made the shirt to show his interest and appreciation for the gift.
