Free to be Me

Anyone who read my blog back when I actually wrote it, knows that Emma is a free spirit.

{Note: I intend to a do a post next week reintroducing everyone and let you know what they are currently up to.}

One of Emma's newest accomplishments is that she is now capable of opening doors. This is a big deal. Huge. Because this means that Emma can now escape. And does. Hence the fence I put in my backyard last winter.

Emma also loves to go pantless. She doesn't mind wearing a shirt, but bottoms? Pleaaase. Too confining. Is there a term for half a nudist? Because that's Emma. (and if there is could you please let me know?) I often put her in dresses for this very reason, although she has been known to lift up her dress and give peep shows. Multiple peep shows. Then again, I've already had to start worrying about her and boys in her pants.

So honestly, it should have come as no surprise when I found her yesterday afternoon. Outside. Pantless.


Yes, my daughter is only wearing a shirt.

What will the neighbors think now?

I am so glad you are back to blogging, Denise. Great being your friend on FB, but nothing quite beats your blogging.

Cutest. Kid. EVER.

Wait, except for mine.

:-)

Kristin said...

I love reading your blog posts again too, Denise! Emma is too cute....I can't wait to hear what everyone is up to now!

Nancy and Kristin, thank you so much! I feel so loved! Seriously (not my occasional sarcasm) I realized a few weeks ago how much I missed it. Now to just keep in the blogging groove, 'cause heavens knows there's plenty of blogging material in my house.

Hahaha! Love Emma ;)

Does she have panties on? Cause if so... well go for it girl.

No panties? Hm.... then we need to have a talk

I think Emma has the right idea, although a 47 woman swinging on a swing in just a top would be a be nuts. She's making her very own fashion statement. Nothing that a few other celebs haven't already done, right?

Denise Grover Swank said...

Lizzie-- Uh, no. No panties. She embraces her nudity with zest. ;-)

Most likely the neighbors will just smile and shake their heads.
Better a half nudist than a whole, I always say.
When my son (who shall remain nameless, but now that I think of it I think all 3 of them did this) used to go naked down the street.
And skinny dipping. THe boys absolutely loved swimming in the pool buck naked.
Oh the memories ......
:)

I love hearing Emma stories. Makes my life seem just a tad bit tamer! Just a tad. =)

You're probably going to be reported for public indecency. You could put up another sign asking for donations to clothe your child!

Emma's right-pants are overrated. She should embrace this while she can. Although I'm looking forward to hearing about the notes coming home from her teachers at school!

Jane said...

Lol! Oh what a priceless picture then! She has a lot of adventures ahead of her.

If I were you I would be expecting a letter from the Neighborhood Association to be there any day. Between the garage door & nekkid baby you are giving those people spasms.
