my thoughts on motherhood, kids, books and stuff

Playing in the Rain

I told the kids they could go play outside rain or shine if they cleaned the house.  Shine?  This is Seattle.  There is no shine here.  That means I just promised they could go play in the mud.

I have mixed emotions about them cleaning with gusto! 

Nothing makes a kid happier than playing in the mud, and happy kids make a happy momma, so I have decided it is a good thing!

    We lived in Seattle for a few years so I know what you mean about the lack of shine. Mud and children? Like magnets. Good luck with that.

    P.S. You can come to dinner anytime the husband cooks. When I cook? Not so fancy. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    So the kids clean the house, then go out and get muddy, so that you can clean up again after them. Yep, sounds just like me. 😀
