Ok, seriously... this is what Owen's shirt looked like at the end of the day yesterday. The photo doesn't even do it justice. And here's the thing: When he put it on that morning, it was brand new. Yes, brand new. Never before been worn. According to Margie (who has been doing professional childcare for over 15 years, and has cared for literally hundreds of children), in her expert opinion, Owen is truly the messiest, muddiest, dirtiest, filthiest, hardiest player ever. In her words, "I've seen a lot of kids -- boys especially -- play hard. But these kids, Owen in particular, play real hard!" She says she's never seen anything like it. It is also her opinion that our only hope for this shirt is to "soak it good and long in BLEACH."

har·dy 1 (härd) adj.
- har·di·er, - har·di·est
Being in robust and sturdy good health.

Oh my word! That Owen doesn't mess around... That just goes to show you that he enjoys life to the fullest. :)

Well, I've always thought if you're going to do something, might as well do it RIGHT :)
Oxy C.lean + hot water works wonders too!
