For as long as I can remember, when my mom spotted some white, fleshy part of someone's body (mine, my sisters', our children's...) she'd yell out "cheesecake!" And the person in possession of that cheesecake would scurry in horror (or delight) at having been seen.
We continued this tradition with Bella, who falls firmly in the delight category. The child loves being naked, and absolutely adores other people seeing her naked. She's been known to flash her ladyparts at innocent bystanders (thankfully all immediate family) and loves to poke her butt out and taunt, "You seein' my cheesecake!"
For the past few weeks, I've tried to curb her exhibitionism with layers upon layers of clothes: onesie, tights, pants, shirts. Nothing worked. Like a miniature Houdini, she escaped all attempts at modesty. I have been forced to pull out the big guns: dresses.
The child loves a dress. She puts one on and immediately spins in circles while proclaiming, "I da fwincess!" And then she refuses to ever take it off, even though I bribe her with the promise of paint or playing outside or taking a bath. No matter how indulgent or luxurious, she holds onto that dress with both hands.
I can't rely on dresses to keep her safely covered forever, but for now, not only is it working for us, she's looking dang cute to boot. Now I just have to figure out a way to keep her hair from looking like it's never seen a brush. One thing at a time, right?!
What works for you?
