There is something about boys and mud. Are they chemically drawn to it? Is it in their very constitution to get covered head to toe in whatever they can find and as soon as possible? Well, maybe not all boys but definitely this one!
It was time for Jack to get a new digging pit since we commandeered his last one to make our very lovely veggie patch. Our yard is surrounded by hedging trees which make a wonderful place to hide for little people. There is just enough gap between the trees and the fence for Jack to walk. If ever I can’t find him in the yard I know he is hiding in the trees somewhere. There is a gap between two trees which made the perfect spot for his new digging pit.
So after raking away the mulch and loosening the dirt, I added a few rocks which we collected from the bushland out the back, some logs, a few tree cookies, a bunch of river rocks and the all important, bucket of water. Oh and you can’t forget the construction vehicles for all those important sub-divisions that will be going on.
I have very fond memories of getting completely covered in mud playing He-man and She-ra when I was little. I hope Jack has similar memories when he is older.
