I really wanted to hug him and say "Oh sweetie, boys will be boys", but I was afraid that would encourage another mud wrap so I quickly snapped some photos, brought him out to the driveway and watered him down with a water can (because our hoses are broken and I couldn't hose him down!) and then reminded him that our dog poops in the backyard and there could be germs in our dirt.
What??? It's true - and gross - and I can't believe my husband had to work today and missed the whole thing!
But, boys will be boys and it was a joy to see him in his element, if just for a few moments.
