    The young girl then scoops up a pile of leaves and throws them over her face as her mother says: ‘Ek am done. Ek was planning to go to Matalan but I don’t think that’s possible now.

    As the child gathers more leaves, Stacey continues: ‘I can’t look at you for laughing.

    Following the scenes, social media users praised Stacey for her calm and cool demeanour, with one calling her the ‘best mom ever’.

    And another social media user added: ‘Love it, kids being kids.

    While another said: ‘It washes off and the memory will last a lifetime. Parenting done right. Good on you Stacey.

    Elsewhere another social media wrote: ‘I don’t want to criticise but how did it get to this stage without you noticing? There could have been dog excrement in that mud. Your child could have gone blind. And why would you even record/ post this? There is so much wrong with this.

    However Stacey replied: ‘It ended pretty much when it started I took the video for her to see when she is older.

    ‘She is totally fine no dog mess etc. It’s something for her to look back on and see that I don’t mind her playing away.
