My Kid Really Cracks Me Up

Garrett's nap today was cut a bit short. After hearing him stir, I checked the video monitor to make sure he had repositioned and gone back to sleep. He had but I noticed a suspicious crack where a diaper should have been.

I contemplated whether or not to let him sleep and deal with the waste repercussions later. In fact, this is the exact decision I landed on but I just couldn't let the moment pass me by. I had to try to take a picture of it. And, as I snuck out with my camera in hand, he stirred, saw me, and that was the end of that.

But I really feel like the picture is worth a thousand words and maybe, even, a thousand naps. Okay so no, nothing is worth a thousand naps.

So, in honor of the fact that I have posted twice today, I think you should all leave a comment with a caption for this photo. It will certainly be making an appearance in my son's scrapbook. You never know, your caption could grace the pages of his album.

Additionally, if we could keep the knowledge of this picture to ourselves when my son hits his teenage years, I'd really appreciate it.


  1. Refusing to accept that another snowy winter will soon be upon him, Garrett naps in the nude.

  2. Longing for the days of yesteryear, Garrett returns to the very familiar fetal position.

  3. "Wait, it's not my birthday? Well then, I'd better take off this ridiculous suit."

  4. The crib, were it can go from wild to sleepy in no time flat!

  5. What's the point in taking naked kid pictures, if not to embarass them later in life? J It's a very cute photo.

  6. I'm reading your blog for the first time and I must say we have more similarities then I first imagined... I wanted to post on this one because Bradley is in here "reading" over my shoulder. The second I scrolled down to the picture, he pointed at Garrett, yelled "Bum! Bum!" and started laughing and turning in frantic circles. Your son's bum is a hit!
