Huggies CleanTeam: Dirty Kids vs. Bath Time
Angela over at Seven Dogs and a Baby is having a contest as part of Connor's Birthday Bash (see the previous post) for the “Best Dirty Story 2008” My story involves myself as a kid. Growing up my Grandparents had a huge backyard with a giant garden. We loved helping my Grandpa water the garden and turning the hose on each other in the process. Well Grandpa left the hose on once for a few hours, he went into the house catch part of some game on TV and forgot. Well we found the giant mud puddle. We were all in our bathing suits, all eight of us. It was almost Fourth of July so all of the cousin were visiting. You can see where this is going! We started 'swimming' in the mud. We were cover head to toe. Eventually my Grandma came out to investigate. We thought we were going to be in such trouble. Instead she just laughed and laughed and then ran into the house to get the camera. By then Grandpa had started to rinse us off (he had come out when Grandma was laughing so hard.) When Grandma came out with the camera she had us put the mud back on that had been rinsed off. She had that picture hanging over the television for years until she passed away. We then had to take turns trying to rinse the mud off. Then we had to take turns taking a shower. We normally would take baths (2 or 3 kids at a time). This time she carried us one at a time and scrubbed us in the shower. Grandpa was sent out to pick up dinner as it took a while to clean 8 Grandkids. I wonder where that picture is, if I can find out who has it now and get a copy I will post the picture.
