Grass Stains Make Me Happy
Grass stains make me happy. It may seem like an odd statement to make, but it's true. When my kids are outside playing soccer, climbing trees, riding bikes and skateboards or making up games about sharks - I love to see it. Those all come with tumbles and rolls on the grass, but it's part of childhood.
I am so happy that they have the freedom to roam around outside exploring the environment they live in. They have grass to play on, paths and trees to explore. Friends to find and lots of fun to be had.
It is wonderful.
When my kids come inside filthy and full of grass stains, I am so happy that they get to experience this wonderful part of childhood. Even if it means more laundry work for me, it makes my heart swell.
So, yep - grass stains make me happy.
