it was a beautiful march day today. the kiddos asked to play outside, every fiber of my being wanted to scream...NO! MUD!! DIRT!! WATER PUDDLES!! MESSSSSSS!!!
then i remembered...i have kids. not adults. (although i know there are plenty of adults who like to get muddy, i, however, am not one of them.)
so i told them they had to wear boots. and they could go outside. ((i could feel each fiber streeetccching))
they were outside for awhile. i checked on them through the patio door every so often. and crocheted on my comfy couch. in my comfy warm house. till i saw amelya smiling at me through the door. barefoot. when i asked where her boots were...she told me. "i got one out. but the other one is stuck."
i walked outside to find a lone boot.
and two stuck kids.
seriously. i was laughing the entire time.
and as i saw these...
i was so thankful i let them play outside.
i should mention. shortly before amelya showed up at the door caitlyn came inside. with one super muddy boot. and a dirty foot. but didn't feel the need to tell me about the situation her siblings were stuck in. ;)
