I always admire parents whose kids look impeccably clean. I don’t know how they do it. When I feel like desperate after I changed Chloe-Sofia for the third time, I remember what my mom likes to say: “Happy kids are dirty.” It is a sign that they are playing, enjoying nature and having fun. Who cares if the pants got wet and muddy? Let me just say that I am learning to relax and let Chloe-Sofia be herself.
Some time ago I began to put aside her clothes with the most persistent stains. I tried all the tricks you can think of (bleach, cold water, vinegar) but as nothing worked, I decided to approach it differently. Instead of trying to fight it, I used it to my advantage. I got several packets of fabric dye and dusted off long lost my tie-dye knowledge.
