Super dirty baby
Okay yes I am a lazy mom. If you have read any of my other posts, I fully admit and accept that about myself. Along with being lazy, I think I'm a pretty good mom. My child is by my side and she is filthy. She is happy. She is calm. She is giving me kisses. I too am filthy; covered in fingerpaint and sweaty from teaching Audrey to play catch with our dogs Jasmin and Snoopy. Oh yeah I forgot we both have bubble solution in our hair since I ran the bubble machine. Filthy and happy. I like it. Okay, I love it.
I don't understand moms that refuse to let their children get dirty. I feel bad for children who get yelled at for playing with dirt. (My own nephew has a mother like that. Kid just about has a nervous breakdown when he gets dirty.) Growing up I got to get dirty. I'm thankful for parents that understood and appreciated the value of a good mud fight.
I could keep Audrey inside all day. I could hide all of the pens and pencils and refuse to buy her fingerpaint but what would that really do? Kids need dirt! So I have a super dirty baby. I have a wash and wear baby. It is amazing the things soap and water can clean :) Let your kids be kids. Bring on the dirt!
