I don’t know if you can see here, but Gus has bits of food and crust on his face and nose. I never pictured myself having a perfectly clean little kid, but I certainly never expected to be one of those Moms who let’s their small child run around with a dirty face.
Turns out I am. Because many times it’s a choice between clean or happy.
Hey look, it’s one of those things a Mom can beat herself up for either way!
