If, by chance…

you plan a day of gardening with your children…

and if, by chance, part of this day involves sending them into the woods on a “pirate treasure hunt” for little rocks for the bottom of your flowerpots…

and if, by chance, your woods happen to be sparsely but stubbornly populated with poison ivy…

and if, by chance, you finish up right around lunchtime…

and if, by chance, you have one child who cannot wash himself off in the shower while you get lunch…

you might consider doing this.


He will enjoy it ever so much, and tell everyone about it.

(by the way, yes, he is holding the sprayer hose, and no, he didn’t get the kitchen all wet. He washed himself off with it.)
