Just this morning, as I pulled on a t-shirt in my closet, t-shirt over my head, I hear, "Whoa, you really are getting a pooch. So the baby's, like, right here?" and I'm poked in the abdomen with a bony finger. I pulled on my shirt and told DD that I'd like some privacy while I dress. She tells me as I nudge her out, "It's a walk-in closet, I walked in!"
So, uh, I guess DD is going to keep seeing me in various stages of undress until I either learn to lock the door or she gets tired of seeing my saggy ass.
Generally we're very open about our bodies because we don't want our kids to be ashamed but my oldest is now 5 and I change in my bedroom and ask him to respect my privacy but don't specifically say that I am trying to hide my body from him.
We just want to keep an open line of communication so they aren't ashamed of their bodies when they get older and our daughter starts her period or when they start becoming sexually active. We don't want them to be embarrassed.
