The other day I made the mistake of saying something about how W goes down the stairs like an otter going down a mud-slide. This of course triggered a round of questions from F and Su and F remembered that he had a book with pictures of otters and mudslides. OK , just a little more information tucked away in the velcro-brains, or so I thought…

Then they decided to play outside in the brief rainstorm we had this afternoon. W and I were making crackers when there was a knock on the door. I opened it to grinning, muddy children….

"We were being otters."





They had been making and using a mud slide! Oh well, it was a bath night anyway….

Creative children are definitely on my list of gifts that never ends…..and the memory Makes My Monday.

    I’m still smiling although I’ll be spending at least part of this afternoon removing the mud from the tub. I bathed them and then rinsed their clothes in the tub and the water was the color of strong coffee when I was done…..K
