Mud pie

May 9

"Mom, can I make Mud Pie?" asked my almost second grader. That may be one of my favorite questions ever. I spent a lot of time playing in the mud as a kid. It was great. I made pie and pizza, mud balls rolled in leaves, anything to get my hands into the wonderful squish.

We found a good spot in our garden bed in between our new plants. I turned the hose on to a trickle and away she went. Slapping and patting, digging and squishing. She found several new worm friends and had a small insect take a swim in her pool. She fished him out with a twig and set him to dry.

Meanwhile my little one looked on not quite ready to dig in. She did enjoy being served the pie for pretend at the end and declared it delicious.
