My boy likes to get dirty

It is no secret that Alex likes to make a mess and usually that includes on his little body too. The boy is always messy and dirty! But I think that goes hand in hand with being a boy and being 18 months old.

Whenever he eats, I have to have extra napkins or wipes nearby because by the end of dinner, he is a complete disaster. He gets food down his shirt, in his hair, all over his face and even sometimes in his ears.

If I take my eyes off of him for one second while playing outside, he ends up with dirt and/or mud all over him. I feel like I am constantly doing laundry thanks to this kid!

This was his most recent mess on Easter. I will note that this was all Chris' fault since he was entertaining the kids in the backyard while I took a break after cooking our Easter feast. When the boys came upstairs, I couldn't believe my eyes. Alex has a mixture of dirt, leaves, snot and bubble soap rubbed into his face, hair and clothes- disgusting! A quick bath took care of it though and I don't think I've ever seen more dirty bathwater.

Most of the time though, this is the sweet face that I see. Some food and grime on his face but mostly all I see is my happy, funny, lovable baby.

  1. I so feel your pain. Brooklyn is a disaster after eating, and you basically can't touch her without getting yourself gross too. Not happy to hear that it is still like that at 18 months! And happy anniversary, Val! I wish I could play with you more!!!!!
