Astute Observation!

I just got home from a Grandaughter's 2nd birthday party. Among other things, she was gifted a plastic wading pool. Her other Grandpa (it was at his acreage) got out the hose and put about 4 inches of water in it. The two year old promptly slipped out of her party dress, pulled her diapers off and and sat down in the pool. I came outside about 10 minutes later and stated the obvious, "She doesn't have any clothes on".
I sat down by my eldest son, the Birthday Girl's Dad, and he had this observation.
"Ya know Dad, it doesn't matter if you're 2 or 52, if it's your birthday and you end up in a swimming pool naked, you've had a good birthday."
Anyone want to argue with that?

I have a good day doing that even when it isn't my birthday!
And I've never done it yet ON my birthday.

Cliff,
Good thing she pulled the diaper off first. Otherwise she may have drained the pool into the diaper.

I'm all for being naked in the pool....birthday or not.

I'd want to hold off on having several generations of the family clothed, encircling me and commenting on my folic, though. I'm just that way.

And a VERY happy birthday to the Birthday Girl !!! ;)

I'm glad Madi enjoyed her birthday.
I think she had the right idea, but in my case I wouldn't want an audience! A pool would be especially nice this year with the heat.

So no argument here!!

Haven't you seen the diaper commercial on TV where the little girl goes into the ocean and comes out with a very saggy diaper? That's why you have to take them off and go naked if your are 2.

Weren't those the original lyrics to that one tune..."it's my birthday, I can streak if I want to"?

Glad a happy birthday was had by all!

My kids were naked much of the time up until they started school. It seemed they felt free while on the ranch, and they much preferred no clothes. They also enjoyed wading in their kiddie pool or playing in the bathtub or running through the sprinklers.
Thankfully, they wear clothing now.

I hope she had a wonderful birthday. I'm sure she was properly spoiled and is greatly loved.
