How to make Mud Babies....

The other morning as I was going about my day I heard loud giggling.  The kind of giggle that makes a novice mother smile, and a seasoned mother stop what she is doing and head toward the sounds.  My babies were found out in our backyard enjoying the results of spring rain.  Mud.  Like any reasonably responsible mother would, I grabbed my camera and quietly took pictures making sure not to interrupt their game.

After they were all through with fun we had more fun (at least I did) hosing them off.  Was it absolutely necessary that I post 14 pictures?  Yes, yes I think so.  I have several more on file, but I think these 14 illustrate my point just fine.

Making Mud Babies.  A simple example of 'don't sweat the small stuff'.

My jaw kept dropping - and a big smile approached and then huge laughter came out of my mouth!

I promise to "let go" and let me little ones become mud babies!
