Controlled mud fights,

squishy red-brown-

One of the rare times to get

two pages of a woman’s magazine read,

half watching as the oldest,

cupped hands scooping,

then shampooing the younger child’s

(usually tow-headed)

hair to color it .

“Not the face!  Don’t aim for the face!”

In spite of an involuntary mud-mask

on the copper-headed oldest child,

there are giggles in relief at

not being stuck inside this rainy spring day.
