Dirtier than a dog!

It's time for Not Me! Monday (a blog carnival created by MckMama; you can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have NOT been doing - but really have!).

**Hint: If you get confused, just remove the words in my post that are in all caps and you'll know the truth!**

It's NOT me who looked over during my 7 year old's baseball game to find my 4 year old daughter and another little sister of a boy on our team showering my toddler with water from a large mud puddle that they scooped up in a plastic water bottle they found on the ground!

And even if I did happen upon the scene of my toddler gleefully leaning his head down allowing the girls to shower him and then looking up as the muddy water ran down his hair and face, I did NOT dissolve into a fit of giggles before I could compose myself enough to tell the girls to stop.

My toddler was NOT such a gross-looking sight that I spent the rest of the game trying to pretend he wasn't my child!

A parent brought their dog with them to the game and at one point the dog nearly ran through the mud puddle but the owner stopped it just in time and I did NOT turn to my friend and say, "It's pretty bad when their dog is cleaner than my kid!"

When we got home from the game my 7 year old did NOT refuse to shower with his little brother because he didn't want any of his brother's dirt to get on him! "When you have a really dirty guy, he can't shower with a medium dirty guy." My oldest son reasoned pointing to his little brother on the "really dirty guy" part and himself on the "medium dirty guy" part!

  1. cute! i didn't know kids realized the different levels of dirty! :)

  2. Love it, and the 7 yr olds explanation of dirty.

  3. Sometimes...I find it easier to clean up afterward than to have the fight that would ensue if you tried stopping them...sometimes. :)

    As my nephew use to say, "God made dirt and dirt don't hurt!" hehehe

  4. haha love it...And your son's reasoning makes sense to me... Have a wonderful day. = )
