Wordless Wednesday

Mommy put this spotless white outfit on me today. Let's see what we can do to fix it.

Start the day by insisting on a big person cup for your mango smoothie.

.



Painting! That's always good for a few marks.

Playing with the dog should result in some paw prints . . .

Practicing gymnastics on the sidewalk for some good old fashioned dirt stains.
Combine some chalk residue with the dirt.
Oooh - half ripe tomatoes in the garden. Let's try a cherry one! It's got some squirt factor . . .

To finish off, we bring you grass stains from our grasshopper (or snake) hunting excursion.
Happy laundry day!

Ok, so you're not just going to toss that? :) Tell me your secret. How in the heck do you keep white clothes white?

That sweet girl has some precious baby feet! (I love little baby feet.)

It hurts my heart to watch my little toddler boys' feet turn into big BOYS' feet. Eeeewwww.

I still love them, of course. I just won't kiss their feet anymore! :-)

Another great day for an active Esme! Love the gymnastics photo - I think she's showing early signs of becoming America's next top gymnast :)

All she is missing now is mommy's lipstick!
I remember my girls getting in to that many many years ago.

Jennifer said...

what fun! Like Summer and a few others said, I want to know your secret for getting the stains out.

I normally try to spray clothes with Shout right away and wash in warm water when I get around to it, but that doesn't always work.

What a cute little outfit! I love dressing Hailey in things like that but they always end up so dirty! Oh well, that's the life of a toddler!

Is Wordless Wednesday the same as Word Filled Wednesday? I'm new today and I was not sure which post I should be at...but no matter I so enjoy so little one and her precious photos. Look like she had a wonderful day...sorry about the laundry but what a positive attitude! She looks so pure and lovely in the white even stained much like Jesus washing us
clean! God bless your day! :)

Dirt must be a universal constant for kids! Found anywhere you find little ones. My daughter can find dirt even in sterile environments.lol

Andrea said...

haha...that's so cute...Tate loooves anything that might involve getting dirty too - him and Esme would make great playmates, I am sure. :)

mamajil said...

This was fabulous!!! So just out of curiosity...how hard is it to find spray and wash in your neck of the woods?! lol
