“What a View!”


I’m not even really sure what else I could possibly add here, other than muse on the view and subsequent thoughts of passers-by and the neighbours. And to gush over the thigh and tushie fat rolls, which are just GORGEOUS.

I suppose I should mention that she climbs up there herself, she loves climbing. She uses the pink stool thing next to the chair. She sits there watching the world ogle by, blissfully unaware of her 'state of Eve.' She likes to bang on the window, sit with her toes on the warm radiator, and terrorise any cats who dare a few minutes on the sill in the sun.

Ahhh, the giggles an EC toddler brings!


This was intentional…

Part 1: Ok, remember when you were young and you used to have those dreams where you were out in public, or at school, and you were naked? No one seemed to notice, you did your usual thing, it was just…your birthday suit was your only accessory?

…I may be alone on this one.

Part 2: My BFF Tara and I were up late one night, chatting away in her computer room when her youngest of many children, a cute little guy called Donny, appeared sleepily rubbing his 8 year old eyes and complaining of feeling unwell. He looked so adorable in his t-shirt and underwear. Tara took one look at him and told him to take off his underwear.

“Son, ” she said, “you need some air on your balls.”

What?! I was floored! I laughed ’til I cried. Donny took off his underwear and went back to bed feeling better. I gently probed Tara on her parenting technique. She said her dad used to tell her that you should regularly air out your privates. Hehe!!! I wish I could have met that man. Legend.

These two separate things may seem unrelated. Alas, my daughter doing her thing on a typical day in the O’Brien household:

Sans her knickers. Rockin’ the rainbow leg warmers. Airing out her privates.

It was, I assure you, intentional. The absolute-hands-down-best-bit about ECing your baby? Giggling at THAT TUSHIE all day!!
