Daddy's little girl gone wild

I had been trying for a few days to think of a good debut post here at Hot Dads, until the other day when this one fell into my lap while making some toast.

During the half-hour wait for those little coils to brown the bread, my 4-year-old son D- ran into the kitchen carrying a plastic camera he'd found in the toy box I had just been cleaning out.

Given this miraculous piece of technology --a machine that captures images on film, made for only about 50 cents-- his first thought was to ask me to put my scratchin' hand down and pull my shirt up a little farther so he could take a picture of my belly button.

Since there was no film in the camera, I complied.

His second, much more noteworthy, thought was to approach his 2-year-old sister M-, playing on the floor nearby, and say, "Pull up your shirt so I can take a picture of your tummy."

This future demure damsel's immediate response to the intruding photographer was not only to pull up her shirt, but to announce with glee, "I'm gonna take off my shirt!!"

Shudder.

Classic. Stop them while young. Pretty soon she'll be on that 'girls gone wild bus'....

Funny story though. Nice debut.

Shudder is right.....LOL cute story.


My kids spend almost the entire summer next to naked, at first I used make them put thier clothes on, but I noticed that the desire to be unencumbered and free of clothes seems to be universal with children, so I let it go and they run around like cave-kids in thier skivvies now.

Too scary!!! LOL

Keep her far away from all busses and poles!

We have a teen girl who always jokes with us saying things like, " yeah...I just got a job, a few nights a week, at a 'gentlemans' club (or hooters)" knowing that we choke and vomit on the inside every time she says it. then she runs off laughing.

I don't know. With the Economy in a tailspin, and Impact imminent.....

One can never have too many free drinks and Trucker Hats.

Heh, that's funny.

We actually have "naked parties" at my house. As soon as my little girls see me undressed, off come the clothes!

Maybe they'll grow out of that...

And a small chill went down my spine as I realize that someday my infant daughter will grow up.

Mama Dawg said...

You do know that Mardi Gras is this weekend, right?

She must have known that and is just practicing.

Kat said...

That is hilarious! That would have made a lesser man pass out.

Hey, man, keep her away from Bourbon Street. Unless you like a lot of beads.

My little 3 year old likes to point out who does and who does not have boobies "Gramma have boobies? Mommy have boobies? Daddy have no boobies! Lemme check ... no boobies."

Laggin said...

Bwuahaha! I laugh at you.

When she reaches puberty, just convince her that "onesies" are all the rage for teenagers. By the time she gets her snaps undone, the camera man will have moved on. Hopefully.

Allison said...

You are screwed. I think I might have already told you that.
