No, I am not talking about THE Tough Mudder but rather the one that got Princess in the backyard the other day.
Now that the Triplets are easier to bathe I let them get dirtier. I have always told them, when they can bathe themselves they can get as dirty as they want. This, however, was not on purpose. There was a communication breakdown around the mud hole and Bruiser did not know Princess was right behind him.
Playing in the mud is probably one of the funnest things I remember doing as a child. Here are some reasons that I should let them do this more often:
- It is outside
- You can do it in bad weather
- It does not require batteries
- You can do it just about anywhere
- It does not cost money
- There are no uniforms you must buy
- No training or practicing is required
- They need a bath anyway
- It is good clean fun:)
As soon as the dirt is hitting the casket, it’ll all be forgotten.
I may not yet be as old as dirt, but dirt and I are starting to have an awful lot in common.
