Watch a Toddler Experience Rain For The First Time

Raindrops keep falling on her head

Adults have had years to build up indifference to rain. We shrug it off, grab an umbrella, turn up our collars and trudge through it. Kids, however, kids are different.

In a new viral video set to Jon Foreman’s “In My Arms,” a little girl named Kayden learns to love the rain, and boy does she love it. The youngster holds out her arms and spins around in a scene that looks like a kiddie version of a Nicholas Sparks novel. She resists an umbrella, raincoat, and shelter indoors where it’s warm and dry because all she wants to do is play in the rain.

The clip is so cute that it almost makes you want to forgo an umbrella. Almost.
