I think that all mommies (and daddies) would agree with me that children will be children - and they love to get dirty! The pictures below were at the time when Joaqui was curious with any thing that he gets his hands into. This was in Bataan when we first went to the beach with him. He was a mess with all that sand, but it was evident that he had fun.
At 2 years and 7 months, he likes to make a mess around the house. He would put out all his toys from his toy box and would scatter them all over. I often tell my husband that it seems like we have 5 children in the house when we only have 1. : ) He also likes to re-arrange pieces of furniture by moving them around. Even though this is the kind of mess he does when playing, he knows how to put away his toys by playing "shoot the toy in the box."
