Muddy Butties

So, if you know me then you know that I am a Mom to 2 little tornadoes. I say that with the most affection possible . They are the joy of my life and also my motivation to own a lot of cleaning products. Today I came across a “cute” boy moment so I grabbed my camera. Bryden (my youngest) found a worm and he was delighted with it. Squealing, watching it wiggle and then he would get kinda freaked out and drop it to the ground and then he would get sad that he no longer had it, so he would start looking for it again, and the cycle went that way for a while. And yes the worm did live to tell about his time with my son.

So while I was watching and taking pictures of Bryden and his new little friend, this walked by the corner of my eye…

I should have jumped in but he loves doing this sort of thing and he is a boy. Ok, that is what I was saying to myself.

I don’t want to stand between my boys and what they enjoy. Even if that means I have to schedule more time for laundry.

***But here is the thing. Last night we rented a carpet cleaner and then CLEANED OUR CARPETS. Any person in their right mind that had just hauled that machine around her house, and saw that filthy water- SHOULD HAVE STOPPED HERE!!! But in my mind I was thinking, “Their boys! This is what boys do, Right?” ┬áSo I let things keep progressing***

Bryden was playing with the hose, but look where the water is falling. That’s right, you see it coming now. That woman who cleaned her carpets in going to be cleaning them soon AGAIN.

The MUD PIT had been created and they were LOVING IT. I couldn’t stop them. And really it only costs $25 to rent the carpet cleaner :)

And this is how it turned out…..

But Travis came home and saved the day. He carried the muddy little monkey’s upstairs and let them soak in the tub. So the carpet

was spared, the boys had a blast and got some fun pictures to show at their weddings someday :)

But till then don’t forget to book your sessions for Christmas cards.

That season will be upon us in no time and getting ahead is the way to go…
