    It’s a farm Elle, hats to break it to you but they’re going to get dirty.

    Just don’t jump into a wagon load of hay.
    There could be a sharp pitchfork embedded in it…
    Saw this once at the Mayo Medical Museum.
    It was terrible !

    Dirt happens. I grew up on a dairy farm. Dirty even attacked you when you weren’t looking. Thankfully attacking cow pies were few and far between. And usally badly aimed.

    to continue Elly’s sentence: “because I’m the one who’s gonna have to clean up you and your clothes!!”

    That’s the kiss of death. Now they’ll get dirty for sure.

    Auto-nag. I do that with “stay safe” or “play nicely”- the safety thing is a big deal. Farms are dangerous. MIL owns one, and it’s full of animals, rusted farm equipment without safety features, etc- and they don’t even have the animals any more.

    The only dirt I really even care about (with 3 small kids) is ketchup/pizza on new clothes because I can’t get that stuff out. If my kids aren’t getting dirty with some real honest dirt regularly, I feel like I’ve failed as a parent.

    And after what Lizzie said, all I can think of is “This little piggy went to the market…”
    (help, I’m regressing to my toddlerhood! :-o)

    I spent all of my summers on my grandpa’s farm in Alberta. It was there that I walked into the barn and witnessed a pig giving birth. Lots of indelible memories.

    Farm + Dirt = normal childhood.
    Well, one year, when I was 6, the owner of the property, wanted me to carry a 10 litre barrel of apples. They weighed probably 70lbs. My womb donor went ballistic! L

    Skin is easily cleaned. You can be scrubbed, dried and dirty all over again in a quarter of an hour. Clothes take longer, and involve a lot more work!

    Read “The Dirty Life” by Kristin Kimball – great romantic story.

    Ellie’s on auto-pilot. It just comes out naturally.
