delightfully dirty and splendidly soiled
you muddy the clothes over which I have toiled… to clean.
deliciously dusty and marvelously mucky

so dirty and muddy and muck up with glee
’cause that’s how you play and it’s just fine with me.
And perhaps you’d enjoy these other glimpses into our adventures in childhood…
