Another day, another pair of dirty socks!


Yesterday, I found myself slipping back into old habits.  "Don't get muddy!" and "Stay of of the water!" rang forth across our front yard.  The truth of the matter is, little boys playing in a muddy yard are bound to get dirty.  I can issue orders to stay clean, but if I really want them to stay clean, I need to keep them inside.  Being that I want them to play outside, the reality of spring and summer must take precedence.  Another day, another pair of dirty socks will just have to rule the day!

All in a day's work, right? It's better to have tired, happy boys than cranks in clean socks. :)

This is why my children go barefoot:)

I'm trying to keep in mind the high priority of tired, happy boys over clean laundry! :)

Adriana, I'm thinking of getting some of those crocks that I've seen your kids wear. That way, I can just spray them off with the garden hose!!!!!
