A Not So G Rated Post

How did we get from this....


Notice the bathing suits











to this?














I don't know what is so enjoyable about little boys being naked, but it sure is our boys' favorite state of being. What kind of terrible mom lets her kids run around in the backyard in their underwear? The kind who has been through three bathing suits apiece in two days and knows it is only ten minutes until it's time to go in and get ready for bed. They stepped into the backyard to play for a few minutes and asked if they could wade. I said "Sure" and the next moment, their shorts are so wet that they are falling off of them. So the solution; "We'll to strip down, of course. "

At least they kept their skivvies on.

Only the bestest mommies can really appreciate a good "nakkie butt" story when they hear one!

Thanks for sharing.

My first born loves nothing better than to wear a new bathing suit every time she swims...so we go through 4 or more a day.

My baby is also starting to show the same signs.

Oh that's too funny! Gavin swam in his underwear today too. He wanted to go back into the pool and I had his swimsuit in the washer, so undies were the way to go!

You know it is not just boys that have this issue...At times even Divas can surprise you. Now Iam not saying that the undies go in public... but at home there definitely have been times where clothes are shed to just the undis, and sometimes no even those...go figure!

We keep strictly to bathings suits - but that's only because we do the wading pool in the front yard. Having said that, it's not uncommon to see a little girl with no suit on wandering around while suits are getting put on or taken off... I do shoo them into the house when that happens though. :)

Just the other day when I was out on the driveway, I looked up and there was a stark naked Becca, who had stripped while inside and then managed to open the back door to come and find me. Yikes. :)

I love the two pictures you posted!

I just did a post a few weeks ago about this very subject :) Except they were not even swimming, they were playing on the swingset...

HA! My son is the same way. Lucky for us, our backyard is fairly secluded, so I don't mind too much. The front yard, on the other hand, is a different story!

It's not just a boy thing-- Just the other day I found my daughter,and son in their birthday suits-- in the front yard... I am sure the look on my face was enough to scoot them inside and cover up! ({not to mention I said, get inside and cover up!}]
At least your kids were wearing undies!

and they are super cute...

That is a popular pool I saw it in someone elses post this weekend. Love the underwear swim shorts :)

Courtney said...

Trust me it is not just boys!

Melanie said...

It's not just boys- my daughter prefers to be in the nude!

And really- what's the big deal if they run around in their underwear? You see grown men in speedios- and that is certainly not a very happy site.

Ahhh....they were still covered, no big deal. Just tell anyone who asks that they are speedos. ;o)

LOL! My older son and nephew from down the street (whom I babysat for years)were infamous for doing the same thing, except they removed everything (wet clothes are so cumbersome, you know) and because we had grass only out front, that was where it was usually done. *blushes*

Oh, well..you'll be able to tease them about that one day, lol.

MIne would be naked! Great pictures

Debbie Yost said...

LOL! I don't know much about little boys, but little girls seem to have a fondness for being naked too!

Chrissy said...

So funny! I always consider it an accomplishment if my daughter is still fully clothed by the time her daddy gets home from work. It's not easy!

Jennifer said...

This mom right here is the kind of mom with boys running around naked in the backyard....Crew's little weiner is just that...so little it's hilarious when he runs!!! If only they could stay so cute! :)

Toni said...

I would totally let my son run around naked. Inside or out. Call me crazy!

Thanks for the visit and the comment!
