The Naked Chef

I haven't told many funny Kaden stories lately, so I think it's time to share some toddler humor. Now, to set up this story, you have to know that Kaden runs around with a naked bottom 80% of the time we're at home. We start out with clothes in the morning, but he usually completely disrobes the first time he has to go to the potty. If we go to the Y or outside, we of course reclothe him, but the next time he has to go potty? Yup, there go the clothes again. Even the socks have to come off! It's kind of a never-ending process.

So last night, Daddy was home for dinner, and he made a delicious meal for us. Kaden got tired of waiting for dinner to be ready, so he had a little bowl of cereal to hold him over. While Josh and I were enjoying our expertly-cooked venison, Kaden turned around in his seat and said, "Hey! Look at my butt!" So we looked, and said, "Uh-huh." (Nothing extraordinary to see his naked cheeks.)

But he said, insistently this time, "No, LOOK!" So we looked again and saw a Peanut Butter Swirl peeking out between two clenched cheeks. Oh my. That was enough to earn a few chuckles. [I know, I know, we shouldn't encourage it, but it was FUNNY!] But it got better.

Kaden pulled the cereal out and proudly said, "This one's for next week!!" Our chuckles quickly turned to all-out laughter. We just couldn't hold it back!

Turns out, for toddlers who prefer nakedness, the good 'ole gluteous maximus is the most convenient, perfectly logical hiding spot for after-dinner snacks.

Toddlers have a way of inserting humor into the most ordinary of moments. I love this boy!

Jenn's right... I almost died laughing. I wonder which side of the family he gets this from?!

Oh My!!!! I laughed as I read it - having experienced first-hand Kaden's love of nakedness :) He is too funny!! He was in my dream last night. We had stopped by for a visit and he came RUNNING out to the deck as soon as he saw me ;) It was a very happy dream! Have a great day! Love you lots!
