The Little Dirt Angel


When I was younger and only dreaming and thinking about what my family would be like, I used to think to myself "my kids are always going to be clean and always look their best no matter what." As you can see this is a difficult task, and this is what Joseph looks like most of the time now. Any more I have to wash his hands and face every half hour.
Joseph loves to play outside. Unfortunately we have a very small front yard where we park the car. However there is a little space where he can run around and play and talk to people as they pass by our house. The other day; however, he decided he was going to do things a little differently.
After taking his bath and getting ready he walked over to the door and opened it. I was doing some work , but every once in awhile I would look out to check on him. A little later Eric walks in with this kid and this is what he looked like. I couldn't believe it. Eric said that he found him rolling around in the dirt.

AWWWW!!!!What a Boy. That's all. Don't be so hard on him Hannah. I remember when you would be dressed for dinner and you would find a hill of white powdered cement and make a straight line towards it. Oh i wished I had pix of that.These pics are worth a million to me. Thanks for making me laugh. Love you all. Mom

Hannah,
This is Liz Stetler - married to Darrell Stetler II in Oklahoma. Does that help? I've met you before, I believe . . .

Anyway, I was like you and thought that my little boy would not play in the dirt - or at least not at all the wrong times! But he does - we're going to have to start pre-nap baths and pre-bed time baths both if we keep this up! :>)

He's just being all-boy! He's so adorable! My mother-in-law told me never to worry about the dirt on the outside. It's the dirt on the inside that only Jesus can wipe clean.

Awww...he's so cute. Raising 3 boys, I've seen my share of dirt. I haven't always loved washing off the dirt, but have always loved the dirty boys...smiles...I like Kara's comment about dirt on the outside, but clean on the inside.
