Oh, you thought Pig pen was a fictional character?

Yeah, I thought that Pig Pen was a made up fictional character in the old time classic story of Charlie brown. Apparently, my little misters wanted to claim and bring the the name and title back to life. I was washing my dishes watching them from my new large kitchen window and hearing them play so sweetly together and giggling from time to time. Why would any sane mother go and upset the apple cart? they wouldn't and so since I am still clinging to the sane mother title, I let them continue playing. They were safe in they're cage, I mean back yard with a fence and tightly secured gate, all is child proof with the exception of sane mother's beautiful and ever so delicate blossoms, no worries!!

I finished freezing my green beans and thought I should engage in a little interaction with the misters before sending them to sheep counting land (bed). I guess I should have specified in my mind what kind of interaction I wanted to have before diving in head first. What I found as I passed my lovely delicate blooms and turned the corner to engage with my little darlings was pig pen in what looked like the pig pen! You see the sandbox has a lid for a reason, when it rains it is meant to cover the dry sand and keep it from turning into mud. No wonder my little "pigs" were giggling and staying out of they're ' sane mother's' hair. The mud was caked in Little Mister's hair and clothing, and up his nose and oh, yes you are seeing correctly, Little Mister is drinking the muddy water out of the muddy bucket. If you're wondering why Big Mister isn't as filthy? well I am almost positive that he was busy aiding in the filthiness of Little Mister.

Despite all the dirt and and the cloud of dust that always lingered behind good ole pig pen, he was still loveable and one of my favorite characters of Charlie brown. And just the same I love my very own authentic "pig pen's"

God bless and have a great day, Christina

what a great time they must have had. The anxious mommy in me got a little nervous to see all that dirt!!!! You had a big job to get them clean :) I bet they nap good if they are nappers ;) Sometimes it's nice just to let our kids be kids even if it makes more work for us.
