Another fun first

We have some dear friends with three kids with whom we have gone camping a couple times. Their kids have SO much fun, and get SO dirty. The mom, Michelle, and I talked about how she is totally fine with this, and almost feels like the dirtier they get, the more fun they are having. Doesn’t bother her at all. I love her! She’s so laid back! I am NOT like her. Let me clarify: I am not a neat freak. My car and my bathroom are notoriously unclean. I WISH I were more of a clean freak in some areas of my life, because I love when things are clean, especially my offspring. I just have a hard time letting Carson get down and dirty. People tell me this will change with subsequent kids. But my uptight nature in this regard is probably why I have never consented to letting Carson paint. So last night we took the dive! We started slow…just one color, huge paint shirt and doing it outside. He had a blast, so I know we’ll do it again soon.


  1. I love that! My boys attract dirt to themselves and have so much fun in the process. The best part is, they love the getting clean part at bath time too. Three cheers for breaking out the paint! He looks so cute and pleased with himself!
