I Tried To Get A Picture

Really, I did.

It was the funniest thing. Hubba Hubba told me that Wiggle Man was filthy from playing outside with him whilst I prepared our evening meal.

I just didn't imagine he was quite that faulty.

I went to call him in (he was out with Pop Pop, not just roaming free) and started laughing as soon as I saw that little boy. His face was splattered with mud. His hands and arms were muddy, too. Once I got close enough, I realized that his pants, from the knees down, were mud. (It was hard to tell from far away--he was in baby camos.)

I ran inside to get the camera. Wiggle Man decided to follow me inside, tracking mud everywhere. (Must clean that up later.) I grab the camera, try to zoom in on his speckled face, only to realize there is no card in the camera.

I hate that.

By this point, Wiggle Man is furious. (Don't ask me why, it's not like he had a filthy floor to clean up.) I gave up on the photo shoot, and concentrated on stripping him down. It took several wipes to get him clean enough, at least until I can get him in a bath before bed.

Thank heaven for little boys. And wipes, lots of wipes.

Doesn't it seem to almost always work that way! I can't tell you how many times I have grabbed my camera to take the perfect shot, only to find that my battery is dead.

I agree. There is nothing like a dirty little man, is there!?
My dirty little man is in need of some wipes right now..
So, are you going to show off some of Wiggle Man's art for our blog festival? I'd love to see it!
