Natural High

video


If Wyatt had his way he would be naked all the time. I know wanting to be naked is normal for a kid his age. Wyatt is most happy when he is naked. What I find funny, and I can't post the video here, is the dance and song that goes along with him being naked. The song is more like a chant than any actual words.

The other day I called the house to talk to Lauren and I could hear Wyatt singing in the background.

"Is Wyatt naked?" I asked. "It sounds like he is singing his naked song."

"No. But he was just a few minutes ago."

Being naked is a like a drug to Wyatt. The freedom from clothes changes his disposition in seconds. If he is angry or sad or hurt or in the middle of a meltdown the promise of being naked "for a couple of minutes" instantly makes him happy.

Sometimes when we are out at the store or mall and Wyatt acts up and throws a temper tantrum I am always tempted to just let him "be naked for a couple of minutes" just to calm him down.

So if you see a naked toddler running through the super market...

When my four boys were little, they used to love having what they called "Naked Time". It was always announced by one of them by jumping into a room saying "TA-DA!!!" Then there would be clothes flying and four naked little boys running all over the house.

Good times.

I am convinced that some people were born to be "Naked People".

Just keep him out of porn.

We should all be naked in the supermarket, it would cut down on all the junk food purchases.

Yea, I can see where this is going. 15, 16 years from now, studying with his girlfriend, "I'm kinda stressed out . . . if I could just get naked for a couple of minutes . . ."

It's good to have a repertoire of coping skills.

(He is ridiculously cute. Love the 'do.)

Susie made me snort my coffee!!

My kids must all be repressed...they aren't into nekkid time. But I have several friends whose kiddos are just like Wyatt. It always makes me smile.

Lukas loves his Naked Baby time before bath. He runs around like one of the Lord of the flies boys.

Maybe he's on to something. You could write a book, "Naked The New Stress Reliever"
