SOME WEIRD KIND OF ROLLER DERBY

I occasionally stop by the We Are THAT Family blog to check out the latest antics of "the Big Twin" and her family. A few days ago, the blog author posted a question about raising daughters to be modest.

I try to keep my girls modest. I don't want them to think that their self-worth comes from their looks or their bodies, etc. But, I must say that my girls LOVE being naked! I've pretty much gotten control of them running outside naked (which Bean did a few weeks ago so she could pee on the lawn - a very proud moment in any mother's life). But, it's pretty hard to keep them clothed when they're in the house. That being said ....

Last night, I left a fully clothed Bean in the living room with her father while I put Cakes to bed. About 30 minutes later, I walked back into the living room. Bean was wearing Dora roller skates, Dora kneepads, Dora elbow pads, a Dora bike helmet, and nothing else. When I questioned Big Daddy about this, he said, "One minute she was dressed, the next minute she looked like that."

you find the best blogs. i have naked eating pictures. i almost always remove my kids shirts when they eat because it is just easier to deal with down the line.

My kids love to be naked and I let them run free. I think it is funny and not a big deal when we are at home. I try to keep them clothed when we are out in the world.

Don't you love how dads can say that "one minute it was like this...and then" My husband does that all the time and thinks it is a reasonable explanation for many of crazy things my kids do.
