Hayden likes naked ladies. Sounds weird, right? But he does. The other day I got dressed nicely and I asked him what he thought and he told me that I would look even better naked.
Well okay then.
Last week at the mall he noted a mannequin wearing a bikini. He said that if he saw one of his friend's wearing that bikini that he would have to kiss her. He then saw a mannequin wearing some lingerie and he liked that too. He thought the lingerie would look really good on a friend of mine and that my friend would look even better naked. I was a bit shocked at the thought. I told him that he would never see her naked and he thought that maybe he would be in her home sometime and just happen to see her naked. Not going to happen Mr. Hayden. Sorry.
Is this normal?!?
I swear that he is a sweet kid, but these thoughts and notions are a bit concerning.
I'm hoping that he just finds the body beautiful, which I think is a great thing. There really is no sexual undertone to any of his comments or feelings (at least I don't think there is).
He does still see me naked sometimes which I think is appropriate and okay (but I could be wrong). He also sees Harper naked - which I also think is alright (but I could be wrong).
My plan was to "allow" him to see me and Harper naked until he feels uncomfortable with it. At that point I figured I would cease being naked around him and make it a point to be covered up in his presence.
I don't want to make this into a big deal and I don't want him to feel bad about the female (or male) body. I want him to feel that people and bodies are beautiful and not something to be ashamed of.
