Don’t Tell Bryson’s Mom

I was on Bryson duty tonight so Amber could have a girls night out. After dinner, we went for our ritual outside time in the backyard. Bryson was having a good time entertaining himself, walking all over the yard exploring things. I thought he might like to play with the water hose and there is a part of the lawn that needed watering, so I figured I could solve both of these needs with a single solution. As Bryson started getting into playing in the water, I could see mud forming around his feet, and I figured I’d better take off his shirt so it didn’t get stained.

Then I smelled the dirty diaper.

So now I have a dilemma: If I take him inside at this point, he is going to get mad because he just started playing. I can’t let a dirty diaper stay on and eat up his skin. Again, I used my problem solving skills to find a solution to both problems, and again a single solution prevailed.

So for about 30 minutes, there was a naked baby running around the back yard playing in the water. Everyone was happy, but I’m sure some people wouldn’t approve.

    Parenting is about picking your battles and keeping them safe at the same time. You chose wisely. I would of done the same thing. A little naked in the backyard never hurt anyone.

    As long as daddy wasn’t naked and running around the backyard too, I’d say the damage is minimal.
