Mud is Healthy

I get a kick out of people who are afraid to let their kids get dirty.  Now, I’m not saying you should let them lick the grocery cart handle, but a little honest mud (you know, dirt and water), never hurt anybody.  Yes, one in a million catch some weird, awful, unheard of mud disease but for the  most part I say its pretty safe.  And healthy.  And fun.  And free.  Win for everybody!

Addie reminded me on the warmest day of the year thus far, that mud is awesome.

I love her little mud-coated fingers and toes.

About an hour after she began her art was deemed complete.  Mind you seeking the perfect toppers took considerable time.

I thought they were great!

Now, go let your kids play in the mud!

  1. Raising two daughters, having our first grandchild be born a girl and a now a first great grandchild a girl I have had many mud treats “served” to me along with make up smeared on me and my hair “hair sprayed” into something that looked like a dead weed patch, I can appreciate pictures of pretty girl making a “treat” out of mud! She is so cute and blessed to have a mommy that appreciates God’s dirt and the fun it provides!
