Too bad! adult content

We just got back from the swimming pool at our condo complex. My daughter went to change into a nightgown from her wet swimsuit, but she ran downstairs because she had to tell me something urgent that couldn't wait long enough for her to dry off first. My boyfriend said it was too bad the world has gotten to be what it is because she gave us the perfect "I can't believe I did that" picture that we could have teased her with when she was a teenager. She appeared dressed in nothing but a pair of pink unicorn Stompees with three Disney Princess diving wands in her hands and her hair falling out of a ponytail.

So do you take pics like that of your kids, or is discretion the better part of valor these days?

  • That would have been a great. I have a lovely picture of me when I was about 7/8 with a leopard print bikini and roller skates(doesn't everyone roller skate in that??? LOL) on that my parents enjoyed showing my DH when we first started dating.

  • Yes I take pictures like that. With the advent of digital cameras it isn't hard to take and then keep for yourself. While I wouldn't share it on facebook or something nothing wrong with having them.

    I took one of my son in our rabbit cage, I was cleaning house and went into his room to find him in it(the rabbit was out and about) and had to take a picture. I couldn't believe he fit himself in there. He has since said he went in multiple times and even with the rabbit(who has since passed). lol

  • My daughter is 6 years older than her brother. He became her dress up doll. I have a picture of him at about age 2, wearing a leopard unitard, a pink too-too, and gobs of makeup.

  • I don't, but that is a personal choice. I have a couple of censored tub shots and that's about it.
