Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

That’s what little boys are made of…

I came across this little boy bedroom on Pinterest recently and though it appropriately summed up the definition of my little boy.

Dirt and noise.
Mischief and laughter.
Slobber and babble.
Determination and curiosity.

But back to the dirt…

While play clothes, knee patches, and buckets for soaking filthy laundry may be in my immediate future, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. A little dirt does a boy good. He’ll learn not to eat it. And what he eats, well—what doesn’t kill him, will only make him stronger. The opportunity and sheer excitement he has to explore the world mouth hands-on is priceless. I will not take this from my son.
