Re: Do you let your kids get dirty?

I would allow it, but it doesn't seem like we get a ton of really messy oportunities. Maybe I'll try to seek out some mess over the next year or so.

Re: Do you let your kids get dirty?

Ha, I had just clicked on this and started reading and my four yr old comes inside with her hair already plastered to her head and asks if they can play in the rain. lol

Re: Do you let your kids get dirty?

YES. But DD hates being dirty. The other day we played with the hose in our front yard and it was right after DH mowed so there was grass everywhere, of course it was all over her legs. She about had a fit! She kept saying "messy! messy!!" I'm hoping she grows out of that. And I'm not sure were she got it from because I'm not like that at all!

Re: Do you let your kids get dirty?

Isn't getting REEEAAALLLLYYYY dirty a right of passage as a kid?!

I totally would! It's nothing a little soap won't cure later, but creates memories for a lifetime!

Yep. My kids got filthy camping with no access to showers. 3 days later we came home and showered. The only worry I have is if we are camping and they get wet and cold, getting warm and dry can be a struggle.

Re: Do you let your kids get dirty?

I vote other. I probably would when they are older... but I wouldn't let DD now. IMO she's too young to be out playing in the muddy rain like that, plus she HATES getting her hair washed right now, and that's when her hair is just dirty from regular daily play. I can't imagine trying to wash mud out of her hair right now.

Re: Do you let your kids get dirty?

I remember when I was a kid, during the year that the cicadas came out, I had a BLAST letting them crawl all over me. It was messy and gross, but it was a lot of fun! So, as long as it's not toxic I'll let my kids get dirty :-).
