When sensory seeking behaviour goes very wrong

sensory seeking behaviour

So today, after a fun 90 minutes at the park with Daddy, my girls came home and headed straight out into our backyard to play.

I warned them against playing with water, as I’d already cleaned up wet & slightly muddy children once today.

My warning was either not heeded or forgotten as 30 minutes later I heard the tap running and discussions about a ‘chocolate waterfall’…

discussions which resulted in buckets of mud poured down the path so the girls could slide along it, which turned out to be fun in a muddy way, but slightly painful, and once again we were in need of bathing.

Do know what I find most impressive – Annie manages to get herself muddy as, yet her hair remains stylish and neat (albeit slightly muddy)

    Haha aww. Cute.
    That picture reminds me of my brother after he jumped into a muddy marsh at low tide to retrieve a shoe. x’D ohh good times. Yeah that seems pretty fun. The best part is getting clean again after!

    @katesaysstuff@twitter – warmer weather would make for less changes of clothes too I think as they wouldn’t be so uncomfortably cold once wet. Bring on spring and summer 🙂

    @cheesecakeloverk@xanga – they were having so much fun, until the path they were sliding down got scratchy and ouchy.

    I try to remind myself when the 3rd load of muddy clothing hits the washing machine for the day that they will only be muddy kids for a short time. Bit more challenging when it is winter and everything takes longer to dry.

    @starcrossedloversdivine@xanga – Mud days are fun, although slightly trying when they get covered head to toe in mud up to 3 times a day and insist on getting changed and bathing each time.

    And yes, it could have been a much worse brown substance, we’ve had those days :: shudder ::

    I used to love to play in the mud, when we would go camping, my mom and I would have mud fights, she always said her skin felt great after

    😀  She is so sweet!  Chocolate waterfalls sound like fun!

    This is adorable. I was thinking this might be about something much much worse, especially when I saw the brown in the picture. Mud days are fun for kids of any age!
