What does that have to do with anything? Well, remember this picture? It was taken on a day when Bubba and Little played in the water on their new slide and got wet and filthy and LOVED IT. Today I went out to clean that same slide so I can list it on Craigslist (we haven’t taken it out all summer – someone else can enjoy it, right?). I got the water hose so I could spray the slide, had all three kiddos out with me so they could enjoy the beautiful weather (run, swing, go play), grabbed a few rags and went to work.
I hooked up the hose, got the pool for a soft landing, made the conscious decision to let them get filthy (they will wash, for pete’s sake) and let the kiddos go. It was SO MUCH FUN!
They did get filthy but I stripped ’em down in the basement and everyone jumped in the tub for a continuation of the water party. I was drenched as well and speckled with dirt and grime. Even at such an “old” age I’m “evolving”!!!
