At the pumpkin patch today, Audrey says, "I don't want a dirty one. I want a clean pumpkin." I replied, "They grow in dirt, Auddie, they'll all have dirt on them." Then I added offhandedly, "Wash it off when we get home."
And that's exactly what she did.
I got the pumpkins out of the car (ended up with 7 because i didn't realize Nina was adding pumpkins to the wagon while I waited for the worker to come out and weigh our load) and Audrey grabbed a nice dish towel and a bowl of water and scrubbed every single one.
