A Boy & His Boots




You can take the boy out of the country but, you can't take the country out of the boy. I'll admit it, Gage is an exhibitionist. He gets completely naked almost each day and runs around for as long as he can get away with it. But you can always count on him having one thing on, his red mud boots. The boy loves those boots, if only I had gotten him the complete wet suit outfit to go with them. You may all think this is not so bad, but he is not always at home when he decides to let everyone see his stuff.

Recently we were at the gym and I had dropped him off at the childcare center. About 15 minutes later I got called out of my class to come to the day care. I grabbed diaper and wipes because that is usually why you get called out, but I was quickly informed that would not be necessary. I found my little streaker confined to the bathroom completely naked, his clothes were hidden somewhere in the jungle gym and one of the instructors was crawling in there trying to find them. YIKES! How do you explain that one? I tried the, he sees his dad doing it at home and thinks it is funny, but I wasn't sure they believed me. I have since moved back to dressing him in onesies to avoid the naked truth.

Don't worry Kara, I lived with you guys for a while and I believe you when you say he gets it from his dad! Gage's little white butt looks a lot like his dad's actually.

Okay, totally kidding, I've never seen Ryan's cute white butt. Thank goodness!

That is sooo funny! And I had to laugh outloud about the whole Moses and apple incident--your kids are so cute, I love hearing the funny things they say.

Hey, I'm more than happy to help you with your blog if you want...it's kind of ridiculous, I am obsessed with decorating people's blogs right now. Just let me know!

I love the pictures! He's gonna hate that you posted them on the internet when he's older, though! That's what parents are for!

What is it about little red boots? My sister had a pair that she refused to be parted from also. Kids have the cutest little bums. Absolutely irresistible for patting! Glad Karli clarified things in her posts...
