Talking with Toddlers

Like most toddlers, my kids love to be naked. Fortunately for me, they are not the stripping sort of children who take their clothes off whenever the mood strikes them throughout the day, but there are definite times of day when they deem it okay to take off their clothes. When they wake up in the morning and when they wake up after a nap, they often feel that clothes should be removed. I'm not sure why, but they do. And anytime clothes need to be changed, like time to get dressed in the morning, they are much more eager to remove the old clothes than they are to put on the new ones. But I have to say that by far their favorite naked time is nighttime when we're getting ready for bed. Almost the second their feet hit the floor after dinner each night, they begin declaring that they want to be naked. Once they have removed their clothes, they love to run about the house joyfully declaring their nakedness to all who might not have noticed.

"I'm naked!"

Well, it was during that portion of the evening yesterday when Zachary chose to amuse us with the following conversation:

He picked up Reagan's toy phone and, speaking into it, said:


Oh, yes, you can be naked.

Yes, I am.

Okay, bye!

Yes, they love to be naked, and apparently they think everyone else should too!
