A Young Matthew McConaughey

Cakes is becoming a quirky little kid. Her latest thing is she has to sleep in the nude. If you can manage to get her into a pair of pyjamas, they’re chucked out her crib within half an hour.

Last night I came home late after my class. I tiptoed into her room (as I do each night) and there she was, sprawled out in the buff. Clutching her bongo drum.

What sort of weirdness are your wee ones up to lately?


Happy Birthday McHotty! And happy seven years on the job. We're so thankful for all that you do.

Love, metro and cakes

My Bug sleeps in the nude too!!! I think it's so funny but everyone else thinks it's odd.

Linus just wants to sleep in his underwear now. I think it's cute!

What is it with toddlers and the nekkid? I can barely keep pants on my kid. But it is pretty darn cute.

Happy Bday to your man, and happy firemanniversary!

Mine just acts like a cat or a dog like ALL the time.
I am awoken to either meowing, barking or a face licking almost every single morning.
and oh yeah, our little pet likes to sport her birthday suit when ever she can.

happy b-day mcHotty have a great weekend!

Happy birthday, Mr!

Pumpkinpie when she is at home insists on stripping completely to go to the bathroom when it's a #2 (though she promises that she does not at daycare, thank goodness!). And then doesn't want to get dressed again, which she thinks is hilarious. So I only insist on undies because you know, bum germs everywhere.

and I CANNOT make her stop with the nose picking! She thinks it's funny at this point, so I have to leave it alone rather than make a thing of it and try again later, but it makes me nuts.

That's funny!

Mine doesn't do that, she prefers to run around in the nude in the driveway.

Oliver likes to be made into a burrito before bed. I tuck all of the sheets tightly around him until he is a virtual cocoon and then I pretend to slather him in sour cream and refried beans and eat him. Many times when I check on him he is asleep, all wrapped up snug in his burrito.

I can't even begin to tell you all their quirks.

Happy Birthday to your hot firefightin' husband!

In the buff, clutching a bongo? Sounds like university all over again!

Hmm - strange things? Peanut seems to enjoy popping her finger into her mouth and then popping it out, as thought sucking an imaginary lollipop. She does this whenever she seems to want to express that something has pleased her.

Strange, but true.
