Taj has been going nude at the beach since birth. That's just what we do. Either he has on a full wetsuit, or nothing.
Last year his school went on a little field trip to the beach. Once they got there, his teacher was tending to something, and she turned around and Taj had taken off all his clothes. That's just what we do! They had to convince him that clothing was necessary.
At the beach this February it was freezing! I was freezing in a few sweaters and my down jacket. It was one of those stormy, blustery rainy days. And Taj, shivering in his down coat, asked me if he could take his clothes off.
So now we are in Hawaii, and it's not too cold, and the weather is just right, and we are fighting every day about his need to cover up his privates. He has a couple of sun shirts, and I put the fear of SUN in him by telling him about sunburns and how they hurt and of course then I proceeded to get a whopping sunburn myself. So he's been scared to be in the sun at all.
In the last few days, Taj also wants to wear his pants really low. Like, booty crack, underwear-showing low. Why? What inspired this? No one knows. It's not like he was hanging out with Uncle Z lately.
I was really excited about Taj trying to snorkel while we are here, and I got him a snorkel mask for his b-day present. While he loves wearing it in the bath tub, I think the ocean is a whole different ball game and he won't try it at all. But maybe if we practice at the pool for a couple years, then he'll be ready.
We are traveling home on Taj's birthday, so we will be having his birthday party- Sharkie Tea Party- on the Saturday after. As usual, we'll be partying down at Wilder Ranch, hoping the weather will cooperate.
Love to all!
