Here, I will confess The Crazy.
I will Tell All.
Show you a Dirty Secret.
Yeah, I totally let my kid play with dirt in the house.
Look, it's the end of February. There are worse things than a little dirt in the house.
Like a whiny and bored 3 year old. Believe me, that's worse.
It really drives me nuts when I hear parents get worked up about dirt. "EEEEEK! Don't do that! You'll get dirty!" As if that's the worse thing ever. Kids get dirty. It's good for them. It's good for their minds, their immune systems and yes, even their digestion. Not even kidding on that one.
But is it going overboard to let my kid play with dirt in the house?
But at least the only price to pay for hours of entertainment is a few quick minutes with a broom.
