The joys of being a boy

It's been raining a lot here in our neck of the woods. A lot. That means poor Little Elvis has been stuck inside for most of the days. Or, he's had to go to playgroups that were inside houses (which is NOT his idea of a fun time.)

But, there has been a silver lining to all of this rain -- puddles and mud!!

And I am THAT mom. I let my son splash and whoop it up in puddles. Even though it seems like several others do not approve.

Pshaw all you want. I had the forethought to dress my stir-crazy boy in brown pants and snow boots (thought they would keep his feet dry, oh well.) And the next day, he was splashing in brown camo and sandals.

Here he's in jeans, but the clothes went straight into the washer. All stains came out, and Little Elvis had a blast.

Mommy had to endure some rude comments and stares, but when seeing such a happy little boy, she was fine with it.

**Our ultra-sound is tomorrow! We should find out if Baby Plum is healthy and maybe find out the sex! Yay for calling 2 doctor's offices several times. They can test at 19 weeks if you call enough.

I WANT to be THAT mom, but I am so NOT that mom. I really envy your willingness to let LE be a kid and get dirty. I have such a problem letting Isabella get dirty because it means more cleanup work for me. I'll bet he had a GREAT time.

Now... What are you having?????

Kristi, as long as you don't glare at, or make rude comments at the mommy's like me who encourage rowdy, messy behavior....

I have a little boy too and let him do the same thing! Let him play! He's a boy!

Great photos!

Yay for playing in the mud!! I would so do that, but we don't have a yard for that... I do let Svara do a lot of messy things, though. I figure it's a good experience, lots of fun, and she loves taking a bath afterwards, so it's a good way to spend an afternoon. The cleanup time is well worth it!
