“Do you have to play in dirt?”, I say. “Look at your clothes. Who is going to wash them, may I ask?”
“Mamma!”, says the younger one. Not yet three, he is old enough to answer questions; too young to understand sarcasm.
“I’ll take you to the mall. There is a sandpit there.”

“But I like this dirt”, he persists. “Try and see. You might like it too.”

That is my line. I cannot refuse.
