The Tiny Terror And The Mud
I haven't posted about the Tiny Terror For a While
This is because she now goes to school and has calmed down a bit but only a bit. Sitting still in school for 5 hours a day, even though she gets breaks and a lunchtime, is a bit much for her active nature and she likes to run most of the way home when she gets released from school.
Hiding From Her Sister
There is a big tree in the school grounds and the other day, she decided to hide behind it and stay there while her sister walked on down to go home. Grandad took the older sister on ahead and I pretended to leave, so the tiny terror came running.
The Mud Patch
She ran in a straight line over the grass towards me. I thought she would see the muddy patch but either she didn't see it or didn't realise that it would be slippery because she ran straight into it and of course slid onto her backside. I don't know which part of her wasn't covered in mud - head to toe!
There were a lot of shocked voices and kids saying "she's covered in mud". I just laughed. My own three would have done the same and they just got put in the bath. She was quite subdued on the way home though, but not sufficiently that she didn't want to climb on the wall at the park!
