How to splish splash and stay dry

Around here it's the season of the early morning walk. Since Little E reverted to two naps a day, the first one being at about 9:00/9:30, our adventuring generally starts at about 7:30/8:00. Despite Perth so far having a very dry winter, everything is still well and truly damp at that hour. Little E does not understand this (or perhaps more to the point she does not care). In her mind, the washing machine serves no purpose beyond something to bang on whilst Mumma is in the loo, so she does not think that returning home with completely soaked clothes is a major issue at all.

Consequently, I was very very pleased when her most recent clothing purchase arrived in the mail:

With these on you could fight a fire ... or stay dry in the rain.
They mean you can climb in amongst the plants in a damp garden bed and not get wet.

It wasn't actually raining but the overalls had just arrived so I had to try them on her immediately.
You can climb up wet stairs, and laugh ecstatically on a drenched swing, and slip down a wet slide and land in the puddle at the bottom, and no one will roll their eyes and grumble.
They weren't exactly dirt cheap (overalls $28, jacket $34.90 from Splish Splash rainwear) but they are Danish, good quality and generously sized enough that  hopefully they will last next winter as well as this.

Hi ANB..I remember my little miss having an all in one outfit very like this..except blue..and it was so ideal for going out in the cold. I was very confident she was going to stay warm and dry in Canberra's freezing weather! I bought mine on a trip back to NZ.

I didn't realize you were in Perth too. Those overalls are super cute.
