camping. and.... why i will never be naked in front of jack again.

go camping!  whew!  we just got back from a couple days up in yosemite!!  i say a couple with a twinge of sadness because really, i could spend a LOT more time up there but, alas, my sweet hubby is not the camping enthusiast i am and i also have two small mitchletts. i swear we would get up, ellie would take two steps out of the tent and immediately turn around with a huge dirt beard and several blacked out teeth.  ellie went on a hike in the ergo with matt and i to the bottom of yosemite falls while jack stayed with the rest of the group and headed up almost to the top!  jack and i did a little bike riding in a rental with a caboose.  we saw lots of deer and some ballsy squirrels.

so, if you have kids, they've probably seen you naked.  i know, shocker.  but if you think it's not true... it is.  in all fairness, you see them naked all the time.  it was bound to happen.  well, my kids see me naked on a regular basis but i was starting to feel bad about it and wondered, "when do i need to stop being naked in front of jack?"  i read a bunch of snobby insightful parenting blogs and articles and each one told me, "you'll know when it's time".

"but when?!"

saturday morning, june 22, 2013,  we were getting ready to head out for our day in yosemite.  jack and ellie were dressed, matt was in the bathroom, and i was trying to get dressed so we could get out of the tent together.  as i lift my shirt over my head i hear hysterical laughter (never a good sign).  i knew matt wasn't that dumb so i look up to see jack pointing at me, "what are THOSE!?!" he almost screams for all of the valley to hear.

ahhhh.....  when.  that was the time.  never again, son.  never.  again.

overall, i think i can safely say (write?) that the mitches had a great time and can't wait to go camping again this summer next summer sometime soon eventually!!  right, hubby?!? 

go camping!
