The Many Gross Faces Of Olive

My 2nd daughter Olive, never looks clean. She’s a state. No matter how much I wash her, brush her, wipe her she is just constantly grubby. I swear, I can bathe her and put her to bed and when she wakes in the morning she’s minging. I call it ‘The Second Child Syndrome’. She spends most of her time naked, refusing to wear clothes. I can put her in a beautiful dress, or smart t-shirt and within seconds they are filthy and on the floor. WHY?!

She can be beautiful sometimes. Just not that often. OK, never.

Does your second child never looks clean? What is wrong with these kids?!
