God Made Dirt.
There are so many labels for parents. I'm not sure I fit into any one category of parenting styles, but if there is any particular theme for the way we have raised our two older boys (14&12) and now the twins (19 months) it's this: God made dirt & dirt don't hurt.
As in, I've always felt the dirtier the boys are at the end of the day, the better the day was.
This is what a typical Saturday looks like on the farm with the twins; tractors are life, swinging is fun, and dirt sure don't hurt.
