I remember playing with mud as a kid and I actually prayed my child prayer to God requesting that there would be mud in Heaven.
Instead of mud I made some chocolate pudding for my kiddos to play with. That way when Lorelei inevitably put some in her mouth it would be "all good". I envisioned Hunter being completely covered head to toe with pudding and Lorelei would just focus on eating the pudding.
I should have known better. Hunter thought it was completely disgusting and didn't want to get any on himself.
Lorelei gave it a try and then was enthralled with gushing it through her hands and then rubbing it on her legs like lotion.
She attempted to get Hunter to join in the fun, but Hunter promptly started trying to wipe of the pudding off his knee onto Lorelei.
She didn't mind a bit. Lorelei was too focused on squishing the pudding. Lorelei was completely content being covered in chocolate goodness.

It is always neat doing things like this and seeing my children's personality shine. My children definitely are their own people and are not easily persuaded. Hunter loves his stuff organized and all lined up. It will be interesting to see how Lorelei likes her stuff. So far she just loves to pull things out. I am guessing that trend will probably continue.

What messy fun have you had with your family lately?
