Chubby Baby Thighs
July 16th, 2010
Although less vigorous, I’ve also maintained a slight aversion to tank tops, shorts, and dresses without pants. I think babies just look so vulnerable in tank tops with their tiny shoulders exposed to the world. Likewise, I am unimpressed by the little bloomers that come with baby dresses, and last summer, tended to outfit Miss Mouse with a nice sensible pair of capris or leggings under her outfits.
That’s right — I have fallen madly in love with the sight of chubby toddler thighs. I can’t get enough of them. I just want to grab her and gnaw on those chunky legs every time I see her. Is that wrong?
Miss Mouse now has multiple pairs of shorts and is also permitted to run free in dresses-sans-leggings. I’m still not impressed by the bloomers, but her cloth diapers are so cute that I don’t mind if she flashes a peek of those to the world at large.
And I’ve come around somewhat on the bare shoulders, too. Last weekend it was just too hot to insist on a t-shirt underneath the 4th of July dress. And the result was quite charming…
