|dumping out all the water|
What kid doesn't like getting dirty? Although I know there are some that don't, most do. B is no exception. Like most kids it is usually in the most inopportune times, like when we are about to leave and I am putting W in the car and B starts playing with dirt in our front yard in his nice clothes. It drives me a little crazy.
My MIL and I were talking today about letting kids be kids/ letting boys be boys. I don't want my kids to ever think getting dirty or exploring nature is wrong, but there are better times to do so. With that in mind I decided to make this little boys day and let him get dirty!
I set up up his inflatable pool, threw in some dirt and a bucket of water and let him go to town! I also gave him some funnels, shovels and a dump truck for good measure. He enjoyed his piggy behavior for most of the afternoon although W wanted nothing to do with it and enjoyed spending time indoors with Papi. I had a great time watching him splash and play. He kept on looking at me as to see if this was okay or if I was going to stop him. Not today little man, today we get dirty.
