In The Buff

I brought my kidlets thrifting the other afternoon. My eyes zoned in on a couple of two-fer bins, so I walk/run us over to check them out, never noticing the bronze sculpture on the table next to them.

But my sweet, precious Monkey did.

Do you notice the confused, slightly frightened, scrunched up shoulders? It made me feel so bad, not catching that little lady before my poor innocent.

But of course, not bad enough that I couldn’t take a picture.

I was wondering what he would say when I finally called his name, but when I did, he just looked up at me, still processing what he saw.

When I asked him later about what he thought of it, he just said, matter-of-fact, that it was a statue. And a lady. And she didn’t have any clothes on.

I hope I dodged a parenting bullet and that this won’t haunt me in the future…

  1. Oh the shoulders! They really do say it all. That is the baby body language equivalent to “Oh. Oh snap. What. Is. Happening?”

  2. So cute! I love it when the body language says it all. Great composition for what I assume was a super fast click!

  3. Not bad enough that you couldn’t take a picture? Ha! You are my kind of girl!

  4. HAHAH!!!

    Well if it makes you feel better, my son will lift up the skirts of the mannequins. Talk about awkward.

  5. Wondering why the figurine is naked. Happy wordless Wednesday!

  6. We took my kids to a museum at the first of the year and my boys were all agog at the naked ladies. That picture is priceless!

  7. This made me laugh! Parenting is fun, huh? ;)

  8. I think he answer was perfect. Just think of it as an early introduction to art. :-)

    Happy WW!

  9. I do have to wonder what was going through his little mind! ha! Great pic! ;)
