This is what happens when you combine two boys, three days of rain and a muddy back yard. Griping about cleaning up is inevitable.

    You are definitely a cool mom Deb. Letting your kids play in the mud, adding food color in the bath tub! I guess I have to loosen up a bit with my son.

    Don’t give me too much credit, Marhuram. Part of my coolness is strictly self defense. :)

    The guys were, er, blessed with an overabundance of energy. That means if I don’t keep them hopping, they find other ways to burn it. That usually means picking at each other until one or both is crying. Mud might be a bit messier, but it’s better than the alternative!

    The shaving cream paint also is an Evil Mom Trick in disguise. The bath tub much easier to clean up than the kitchen table. :)
