To the beat of her own drum

The Big Sis got a new bathing suit this past weekend, and it’s quite an understatement to say that she loves it. She wore it basically all weekend long, sometimes underneath her clothes but sometimes just the bathing suit only.

At dinnertime on Sunday, I told her that she needed to take her bathing suit off because I didn’t want her to accidentally get her food on it. Without too much complaint, she left the table and came back — wearing nothing at all! I really didn’t want to laugh, but it was so unexpected that I couldn’t help it.

The Husband, through his own stifled giggles, told her that she “needed to wear something” at dinner. So off she went again. This time she came back wearing, well … something. She had put on her winter hat, a fleece scarf, and nothing but her birthday suit. I couldn’t help but be reminded of the Brady Bunch episode with Greg’s “exact words” argument as The Big Sis pointed out, “You just said I needed to wear something. This is something!”

We did convince her to put on undies, and that’s how she ate dinner. I’d post a picture of it, but it’s not that appropriate to share publicly.

Well, at least she wasn’t wearing her bathing suit?
