Don't Eat the Chalk!

So last night we let the kids try sidewalk chalk for the first time. We stripped them down after dinner, b/c there was no way they were going to cover their clothes in chalk, I know I'm a little bit of a clean freak. We took them outside, coating them down with bug spray and showed them how to do it. They watched Jake and I for a few minutes and then we gave them their own piece thinking they might get it. Let me just say, at no time did I nor Jake, ever put chalk any where near our face, much less our mouth. But wouldn't you know, as soon as we give it to them, like moths to a flame, we couldn't keep it away from their little faces. We tried to help them color for what seemed like eternity. We helped them write their names, we drew funny faces, but alas, they would rather eat the chalk and chase the dogs. So we finally gave up and put the chalk away and spent the rest of the evening squirting them with the hose. Cheap entertainment I tell you. I couldn't even manage to get any pics for chasing the chalk away from their mouths. But never fear, I did get some of naked water time.

The boys little naked baby butts

She is such a little poser

Wait til the next day colored poop you have to look forward to this morning! Keaton is obsessed with eating chalk but Elliot just wants to draw on herself with it. At what age do they finally grasp to draw on the actual sidewalk? Isn't it great that at the end of the day a little waterhose is all it takes to make them smile?!

Sexy bums. Wanna squeeze them and put custard on. They are so chubby and with all that body fat you get hungry.

They look like hairless monkeys and they are very fat and repulsive. Ugly disgusting kids exposed by ruthless parents who sell out naked babies to get readers to the blogg or? Good tactics because naked and sex sells fucking good.

Naked assholes: Innocent or inappropriate? On the web, a public place, this is inappropriate. At home, with family it is cute and inappropriate. Why do you want all pedophiles and evil eyes to see the naked children, YOUR children? Shame on you, bad bad parents!
