Getting Grubby - a little kid again contest

The sun was shining brightly
Shall we go to the lake said Mam
I was washed and dressed
Placed in my buggy , all spick and span

Mam dressed my sister
Then herself she had cleansed
Ready for the off now
She looked at me and screamed

Just look at the state of you
You cant go out like that
I had only sat in my buggy
What on earth was the fuss  about

My lovely white brocade dress
Was filthy, how was that
I was just sitting in my buggy
Was the pesky dogs fault

Been out in the garden
Digging holes just for the fun
Came in and saw me sitting there
Onto my buggy he had come

My dressed was pulled off me
Face and  hands washed once more
Looking clean and happy again
Off to the lakes pebbly shore

This keeps getting retold whenever grubby children are mentioned.
"She could get dirty just sitting in a buggy" 
I was aged about 18 months - 2 years

    Wonderful, fun poem. I can relate, my mom despaired of ever keeping me clean, especially my feet because I always refused to wear shoes (still do in fact)
