Mud Man

My son came into the house while I was teaching violin lessons, completely covered from head to toe in mud. I could barely even see his face. "Buddy," I said. "You seriously need to go take a bath!" He grinned and made his way to the bathtub. A little while later he came back down. "Are you clean?" I asked. "Yep," he said. "Let me look at you," I said. I had a feeling that I'd find some mud still caked on. Sure enough, I was right. There was some plastered on the side of his head. "Back to the bathtub!' I said. "Aww, Mama," he said. "Do I have to? Mud makes me happy!"

  1. *LOL* Mud does seem to have that effect on kids. My son jumped into a huge puddle the other night after the rain. Mud up to his mid-calf. Of course, with the jumping, the mud splashed up to his head! I did take pictures!

  6. I remember when I was a little girl, having fun making mud pies. : )

    I think most kids like having mud fun once in awhile.

    "Mud makes me happy!" Now that is a cute quote! : )
