Emma In The Spotlight

I have a window right in front of my desk, where I can see out into the backyard while I work. I was minding my own business the other day, when I see a naked child go flying past my window on a skyshooter. We have a swingset in the backyard and Emma had decided to strip herself nude and swing free. It was so cute. She was completely oblivious to anything but swinging happily and nakedly in the sun with her hair streaming behind her.

I would have let her do it longer, but a child molester lives next door and I don't see a reason to lead him unto temptation.

But Emma is my naked one. Gwennie likes to moon, but Emma likes to strip. I found her (naked) with one leg up on her plastic ballet bar, inspecting herself with a flashlight.

Gwennie is actually pretty good about staying clothed. She changes her outfits about 12 times a day, but at least she is wearing something. The other day she came to me and told me she had a rash. I went to inspect it and took the opportunity to tell her about who is allowed to look at her there, namely Jethro, her doctor, and myself. No one else, even other kids, are allowed. She nodded her head obediently and said, "Yes ma'am."

Now if I can just get Emma to stop shining a spotlight on hers, everything will be fine.


UPDATE: Ala asked about Micky's monkey. I forgot to post a link back, but have now done so.

UPDATE: Comment This is back, so there is no need to use bloggers' comments anymore unless you find them to more efficient. Personally, I've missed the demon emoticon more than I know how to say.

We have a naked one too... our worst stripping case was in church one Sunday. Before we knew it she was naked! We live next door to a man who has been accused of feeling up one of the neighborhood girls. Unfortunately he wasn't arrested since she had no proof but we pretty much keep to ourselves and let the streakers run naked inside. We swear that one day Savannah is going to be wrapped around a pole! LOL

I'm not going to worry you and tell you that I was EXACTLY the same way as a little girl. I'm just not going to do it.

I hated clothes growing up. I hated anything touching my body. Seems I turned out ok, kinda.

LOL @ Brighton. Hey, you turned out great, whatchoo talkin' 'bout?

Make sure she knows the correct name for everything so when she streaks out in the living room with guests and family present and highlights her questionable area she will not embarrass you. Our daughter did just that, but she knew the correct name so all was cool.

My little sister used to think she was allergic to clothes. Embarrassed the hell outta me. It helped me practice my eye-rolling technique though.

Too bad more women don't keep Emma's habit once they get of legal age
