As a mom, I have a lot of rules half of which are designed to keep messes to a minimum. We are a no shoes house. A clean up your own mess house. An artwork at the table house.
But Monday was Mud Day.
With two little boys, ages 5 and 7, I had to make space for some good
clean, dirty fun. We took a day off from wiping our feet to wallow like pigs in the mud. The boys had a blast! I let them run wild making mud pies, flinging mud at walls Jackson Pollack-style, painting, and rolling around in hog heaven.
Jack wasn’t shy.
Max, not surprisingly, showed his inner Felix and took possession of the hose.
Clean up was fun too!
