PSA; kids are washable

alisonnnwonderland:

I love my kids… So very much.

They are literally both covered in dirt by the end of the day… And they love each other so much. They’re so curious about everything. So kind and so very sweet…

Those sweet little babes… With dirty fingernails and scrunchy smiles…

Let your kids get dirty and don’t worry about their clothes… Your heart will be as happy as theirs. Watching them explore is way more fun than worrying about clothes and clean hands.

The scene: my living room, talking to Cormac about getting ready for bed. Tantrum ensues.

Me: Mac, why don't you try some deep breaths to calm down. I'll do them with you.

Mac: But I can't sleep!

Me: Remember how at the end of yoga we lay very still on our mats with our eyes closed? That's a great way to get to sleep.

Mac throws himself to the floor.

Mac, shouting: I'm not gonna yoga nothing! I'm not going to deep breathe nothing! I'm not going to namaste nothing!

Then I died laughing.
