Water & Dirt = FUN

video

I know some mothers will watch this video & immediately break out into a sweat, feel anxious, or praise God this is NOT their backyard & these are NOT their children. I guess with 5 young daughters I have chosen to pick & choose when to say no to messy play. Didn't we all play with mud at one point as a child & LOVED it? If playing with mud becomes something the girls want to do on Friday nights when they are 18 - then we'll have issues. Sometimes I feel like I say NO so much that it is great to say YES, and watch you girls have a BLAST. Of course I carried each of you from the back porch directly into the bath - but it was worth it. I do have to admit that watching this lovely video has inspired me to buy lots of grass to avoid a muddy-messy summer. And ironically I just happened to steam clean the living room carpet this EXACT day. Lovely.

Zayden watched this with me with a jealous look on his face. He definitely wants to join in.

I love when my kids get all dirty and grubby. But, I also love hosing them down before they come inside! lol! Either that or they go straight into the tub. Looks like your girls had a GREAT time!

I loved it!!! Didn't God have someone invent hoses to wash them down after they're done :o) Playing in the rain and mud is a right of passage and I applaude your courage and your love of your girls to let them enjoy the simple pleasures in life!!! At least you noticed before they could get to the clean carpets (lol)
