But,the wonderful thing about kids,is that they really dont care what you look like.Mommy is always beautiful

This summer,my older daughter noticed a couple of stretch marks on my tummy and she started stroking them.After a while she said "wow..these are soooo cool! They are SO soft!".Its funny,but even my baby girls falls asleep rubbing those stretch marks

Kids dont care if your boobs are saggy,if you havent brushed your hair or if you have a pooch etc..they totally love their momma past all of those little flaws.
Its ALOT easier being naked around my kids than around my own husband.I actually cover up a little around DH

Aww! I admit, I've noticed my own stretch marks are very soft! LOL. Your kids are too cute!

I'm always naked or half-naked at home. It's what I'm most comfortable with in the privacy of my own home. DH is usually half-naked most of the time. Anyway, we have no issues with being nude and will continue to do so until our kids get uncomfortable with it.

I can't see it as an issue of modesty. When out I am wayyyy more modest than most people I know & yet at home, i feel it's a whole different set of rules. I think kids can totally understand that. For instance, at home I will fart freely if I need to...but I would NEVER do that elsewhere. I just don't see this as all that different. When I am at home I expect to be able to relax about stuff & not have to pull it together like I do outside. I don't think my kids iwll have any problem understanding public modesty vs relaxed environment at home.

to the bolded!!!! Thats very true.
I dont want to feel uptight at home either,there´s enough pressure outside kwim? Here,we relax.There are certainly rules (as in any other home),but its not like I expect my kids to sit up straight on the couch in their sunday clothes all the time.When we´re alone,we relax.If we want to lay around in nothing at all,then who are we bothering?
But just because we are relaxed about our nudity here at home,it doesnt mean we act like this when we´re elsewhere.Its certainly possible to be like me,yet be modest when we have visitors or we go out etc.
Its not like we´re totally oblivious and inconsiderate of everybody else lol.
