If you liked BAT MOON...

So in my last post I had a beautiful "Bat Moon" picture. Since I had such a good response to it, I thought I would add another one from this weekend.

We call it "Naked Leapfrog"

Oh, and don't think that we LET him go out side. Tommy has figured out deadbolts, chains, and of course the regular locks. He is also quick like lightning, and as quiet as a super undercover spy (when he needs to be). I also hate to say this, but this isn't his first naked time outside.

Oh and to all you "Believers" in potty training. I prefer diapers over potty training. My next child is going to be 10 before we try this again. AND potty training wasn't my idea, it was Adam's he decided to start leaving my son naked. Yes, it has been working, but I HATE Potty Training. (have I said this enough yet)

For example on Sunday the Nursery Teacher brought me my son who had pee all over his pants. She said he went potty, but didn't pull his pants down enough! Great just what I need a pee kid. My kid is the one at church that always smells like pee. This Sunday, I'm bringing spare pants.

Have I mentioned that I hate potty training? I hate cheering over my son peeing (because half of it usually ends up all over him), I hate teaching children how to wipe their bums, and I hate that my whole neighborhood gets to see a streaker on a daily basis. Yes, I said daily. Oh well, I'm sure someday Adam and I will be done having children (I hope), but with my luck I will have no bladder control left and I will be in diapers. HA! Wouldn't that be my luck!

Why are the husbands always in such a hurry to make their wives potty train??

Hey...off track...do you have a dvd of Thoroughly Modern Millie. Chloe got the part of Mrs. Meers in the school musical and I'd love to see it actually done. You are the broadway chic and would know where I could get a copy.

Oh that is even better! Didn't you know Adam often was outside naked? In the snow. In high school. J/J (about the snow) Phenix is scared of the potty, and I'm not taking a diaper off him until he is begging for it. I think bribing him with candy is going to work though. You should try it. We decided to name the baby Jen Adam White. What do you think?

I love my Tommy,we have to figure a way to keep him IN the house, ropes ???

Gram said...

I don't remember Adam running outside naked, but your description of how quietly and quickly Tommy can slip out the door does remind me of Adam. You better hope the child pornography cops don't get after you for posting naked pictures! Love you all. Gram

P.S. Have I ever told you that I hate the word "pee"?! Could we just say "potty"?!

Yeah, potty training is why I waited almost four years to have another child...even though I haven't HAD the child yet!!!!
Anyway, I'm all for being naked...I mean, my kids being naked..okay I like it too.
So much easier than doing extra laundry. And with boys, you can just let them go outside anytime, anywhere, right? How rad is that?!

What cracked me up is when Emma was outside as well, and as soon as she saw Tommy outside, streaking the street, she came running up and was like, "HI TOMMY!"
And she doesn't say hi to him very often anymore. Its usually, "NO TOMMY!" with a big ugly frown on her face. LOL! I'm not looking forward to potty training Ethan...i've hear rumors that they are harder to train than girls. Would you agree with that rumor Jen?

I went to book club the other day (which is mostly people my mom's age and up), and when I mentioned I was potty training a 3 year old they looked at me like I was from Mars. Apparently old people potty trained their kids by 18 months. (Something about being REALLY motivated by cloth diapers.) I didn't even mention to them that Julianna is 6 and has yet to #2 in the potty. So yes, it can be much, much worse!!

Jennifer-
Found your blog through the grapevine. You are hilarious. I had a great time with Paige today in Primary. I forgot to tell you about her prayer- thanking that Jesus could "seal the leopards" (heal the lepers).
