I’m Prepared to Be the Final Word on This Naked-in-Front-of-Your-Kids Controversy

You guys, I just read this thing on the New York Times’ parenting site where a lady talks about being naked in front of her kids all day long.  At least, I think it was a lady.  I didn’t really read it.  But it was definitely about being naked around your kids.

Now, a lot of people don’t know this about me, but I happen to think the human body is beautiful.  And that’s the message I’d like to pass on to my little miracle baby.  But as it turns out, he’s a bit of a prude.  He insists on bathing and changing himself.  He won’t even wear one of those t-shirts with the fake muscles on it.  He says they’re for perverts!

Yep, that’s how the boy talks.  Even though he’s not even two, he’s always saying puritan things like…

“A little privacy please”

or…

“Don’t you knock?”

or…

“Stop looking at my junk”

or…

“This ain’t no peep show, Jack”

or…

“My eyes are up here, dirtbag”

or…

“I know I’ve got some sweet butt cheeks, but stop staring”

or…

“Don’t act like you’ve never seen a big set of jugs before”

or…

“That’s not a painting… that’s my butthole”.

It’s all pretty uncomfortable and I don’t know how to talk to him about it so I’m just going to ignore it and hope for the best.  What do you guys think?
