If You Give A Boy A Creek…

if you give a boy a creek

If you give a boy a creek, he’ll want a rock to throw in it.

If you give him a rock, he’ll throw it and watch it splash.

wading in the creek getting soaked

The splash will make him want to feel the water splashing on his toes, and he’ll want to dip his feet in the water.

Once his feet feel the cool water, he’ll want to submerge himself in it.

boys will be boys

 After you return home from wading in the creek, you’ll check his pocket before loading the soaked clothes into the washing machine. 

You’ll find a rock in his pocket.

 boys love to get wet 

The rock will remind  him of splashing, and he’ll ask you for a creek to go with it.

{Based on the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie  by Laura Numeroff}

    I can SO relate to this. We have to drive through/across a small creek to get to my FIL’s house. Bet you can guess what the first thing the kids want to do is. *LOL*
