BECAUSE KIDS ARE KIDS
Where do you think that child is going to go right after he climbs out of that mud puddle? If he's heading inside, our guess is that he'll plop himself down on the nearest seat -- your couch, love seat, chair.
Kids are sublimely unfazed by dirt. And kids spill things! 'Cuz, you know, they're KIDS!! And if the spill is chocolate, milk, ice cream, juice, whatever . . . the stain it can leave behind can last a loooooong time (did we mention that kids don't clean up after themselves?)
Do you want your kids to remember their childhood as a long series of DON'Ts? DON'T jump on the couch, DON'T eat in front of the TV, DON'T touch 'cuz your hands are sticky, DON'T, don't, DON'T!!
Peace and harmony reign when you're not worried about spills. A waterproof blanket keeps things dry and clean, so your kids can plop down wherever. And you won't be remembered as a screaming crazy person.
