she takes after me.

every morning I dress the three littles, and every afternoon (or at some point in the day), Scarlett strips down to her diaper, opting to run around clothes-less instead.

I guess she comes by it honestly though, because my dad has told me numerous times (like he doesn't want me to ever forget) that, as a toddler, I liked to strip as well.  in fact, rumor has it that when I was around Scarlett's age, my dad arrived home from work one afternoon to find me pushing a doll stroller down the sidewalk, wearing nothing but my mom's high heels.

he also told me that while he and my mom were at the mortgage company signing loan documents for the purchase of their first home, I pulled down my drawers and peed in the decorative fountain right there in the office.   

I think it's safe to say I've grown out of that stage.

you can all now breathe a sigh of relief.

Glad to hear you've grown out of that stage. I was worried we'd be hearing about you still doing this type of thing. ;)

I've been told that at Scarletts age...kids have a high metabolism and so they are always hot...sounds like a good enough excuse for me!! :)

Here's something to think about: I've heard it said that when a person turns the corner onto "Elderly Street", they regress to what they were like when they were on "Youthful Highway". So...Jessica you better hope your nursing home has a beautiful fountain, it might come in handy when you need to pee. And I can just see you pushing your walker down the road wearing nothing but high heels.
