The kid is still naked and I am enjoying mellow days
So far? So far it has been great.
I talked to a friend yesterday and I told her – it has been smoother than I thought, that transition from normal life to one of people without a home, wondering, not sure what the next meal or night will be bringing for us.Â I expected some adjustment, some period of weirdness, or nervousness, or cold feet, mildly chilled at least, but no siree, we have taken to this like ducks to water and already feels like we have been doing it forever.
And it has only been less than 2 weeks.
The kids have surprised us the most. Other than the a bit more than usual bickering, which might have something to do with us all being stuck in one room for all this time, they have been troopers with cherries on top. Many of them, like a crown of cherries, dripping sweet juice on their sun burned cheeks.
The Dod? He is still mostly naked, but useful at least, sweeping our front porch in Lovina.
Who knew that kids love to sweep, only if you give them the exact perfect, right, smooth and soft broom ever, though. Then they fight who will relive is from the sand particles dirtying our abode.
Today will be lazy as well. I have heaps of pictures to juggle, but who cares. You will forgive me, cause you are good people, I know. Else what will you be doing here, it says good people only somewhere, I am sure.
And tonight I am doing something for the first time. I am meeting not one, noooo, not one, but two other blogging women. Wish me luck, cause you never know what happens when those writing females get together – sparkles? Cat fights? Hugs and singing in the night? I cant tell you, cause its all new to me.
For now, I leave you with a lovely bottom, which is apparently full of chocolate and ice-cream, or so I was told this morning, while hugging its owner.
I am loving reading about your travels! Keep up the good work :)
Ok – I have to ask, as a new reader – Why is the Dod the nakedest boy ever? Potty training or just a man who loves a full body breeze? He is completely adorable but his sisters seem to embrace traditional body covering in a way that he does not. Just curious. Enjoying the posts and the pics!
Glad to see the travels are going well. I love the fact that that you have time to blog even more than usual!!
How were you affected by the Japan earthquake and tsunami? I hope you are all well!
My son just saw that last picture of the Dod and he pointed at the screen and said ‘Me!’. Yes, my son is also a bare bummed bandit :)
Glad to hear you are all doing so well.
Happy and Clear, that made me laugh. I have to admit its quite fun to watch my bare bottomed bandit running around care-free.
Liz, actually, my girl is probably even a bigger nudie lover, but since she is older, I am allowing her some dignity and she gets NOT to be plastered for all to see. But yes, probably the beginnings of the Dod-naked-haven were in potty training, but now he has made an art out of it.
Silvia, not at all. We are up high and away from the coast, so even if the tsunami had reached Bali, we wouldnt have known it.
Susan, there is so much to talk about and show, I have no choice ;) And I am skipping a lot, so you can imagine.
I think the reason kids nude are so endearing is because it so accurately reflects their spirit, so uninhibited and free, qualities that as adults admire and long for. I guess it’s also to do with the fact there bodies are free of blemishes and imperfections. I love being nude but my pot belly and wobbly bottom are some how not as cute or photogenic.
Rach, I concur on both counts.
