Summer Baby Grunge
June 26th, 2010
You know you’ve spent a good summer day with your toddler when, by 7:00 PM, she is completely exhausted and covered head to toe in a patina of Summer Baby Grunge. Just what is SBG? It varies from day to day, depending on your activities and the proclivities of your offspring, but it’s basically all the grime that accumulates when you spend a hot day in active play.
Today, Miss Mouse was sporting a coating of SBG that included:
- Chlorine from the community pool
- Dirt from the playground
- Cherries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and assorted other fruit smears from a cookout dinner at a friend’s house
- BBQ potato chip residue, from same cookout
She was pretty gross. But very very happy.
And also very very tired. You know it’s been a long day, when Miss Mouse voluntarily forgoes her bedtime stories in favor of a quicker date with her crib!
