Boys and dirt and I am the worst parent ever. Dont judge

Ya, so I have two boys.
OK, my husband had something to do with making them, but we haven't seen him in 10 days because he is working 15 hour days for 1 month straight.
So, as of right now I have two boys.
Do you know how effing hard it is to keep two boys busy? 
My daughter can go draw pictures of rainbows and unicorns for hours on end, but, my boys......they cling to me like bloodsucking leeches, not knowing what to do with themselves.
Or they fight.
Or they cling to me while fighting with each other and I have no way of getting away.


So, recently I did what every expert parent would do.  I sent them across the road in the construction area where there is lots and lots and lots of mud and a selection of ginormous machinery.
So what.
I told them I would take pictures to document how lucky they are to have a mother who encourages them to play in the mud.
They totally fell for it.
And I enjoyed having my personal space back for just 10 minutes.
When we saw a construction worker, I told the boys to get out of the mud before he saw us.
I had visions of the newspaper article about the "Mother and Children Arrested for Trespassing", so I totally pretended that they weren't allowed to be there.
Parent of the Year right here, folks.
Where is my award???
They were a tad confused.
I was a tad amused at myself for being such a terd, but whatever.

Instead, the boys popped wheelies in the driveway and made the best facial expressions I have ever seen in my life.
Like, really.
Have you ever seen anything so awesome?
Me neither.
