I got in trouble – Aaron’s parents complained he was dirty at his last visit.

Yes he was.

Because he was playing in the backyard before the visit.

And I will not NOT let him play in the yard.  This kid thrives on playing outside.

So, does this mean I’ll need to give him a bath immediately before leaving for visits?  Uggh.

I’ll just tell his parents at the drop off why he’s got dirty knees: because I let him play!
