WWD: Sticker Shock

The other day we received in the mail an advertisement for the children's magazine called Highlights. I remember reading it in grade school and loved it. Along with the ad came a page full of stickers. As I was going through the mail, it was just about Naked Time, which takes place around 5 or 5:30 each evening, and involves, well, being naked. The Trips only, of course, NOT The Hubs and me. Our naked time usually falls slightly later in the evening, or if I'm REALLY being honest these days, around naptime on the weekends. HOWEVER, that may be a leeeetle too much information.

Let's move on, shall we? Sooooo we were in the midst of Naked Time, and I pulled some stickers off and stuck them on the Trips' bewbies just for shits and giggles. Well, that led to pulling off a few more to put on belly buttons, and knees, and pretty soon the whole sheet of stickers was gone, scattered among three little bodies.

After a few short minutes, Scarlett tired of Naked Sticker Time, and pulled all of hers off and stuck them all over my leg. It wasn't long after that Simon came and collected them.

I was on the computer at the time, and the Trips were in the office with me, but I wasn't paying direct attention to them for the moment. When I looked up, I realized that Simon had taken all of his stickers and placed them strategically on his, well, his frank and beans. His twig and berries. You get my drift. They were like a tiny, stickery banana hammock.

It was like he was suiting himself up to head to work at Chippendale's. STAND RIGHT THERE, I implored, running to get the camera. He kindly obliged.

I snapped a few shots WHICH WILL NEVER APPEAR ON THE INTERNET ANYWHERE, just so I could show The Hubs when he got home. Luckily, he pulled into the driveway just about that time, so I ran out to get him. COME IN NOW. You HAVE to see something.

What the hell're you doing?! Was his standard reply, in Irish brogue. Just taking some shots for our Christmas card this year. Don't you think people will LOVE them?

LMAO. That may be the all-time best graduation/wedding/blackmail picture ever.


You are killing me here. So freakin funny!! My 3yr old recently had a naked time that consisted of all day. We got a hot tub and it seems she wanted to be "hot tub ready" at any given moment. So naked she was for most of the day. Glad that phase is almost over.

Have a great weekend!
