Chapter 9, Page 4 Bathing Brother

Little brother makes bath time, ah, interesting.

Remember, Mary, parenthood is not boring.

There is one thing even more certain to trigger embarrassment in an older sister than having to watch her little brother in all his naked glory taking a bath. That is realizing that said little bother is about to expose that naked glory to the rest of the world.

Little boys are not born with modesty, are they?


Tenacious-K said...

Hmm, well neither are little girls in my experience. Modesty, I fear, is a learned skill; we're none of us born with it.

That being said, I still got a kick out of Mary's lil' bro going walkabout! Very funny strip, B. Ain't life grand?!


Brigid said...

@Tenacious-K: True. My experience with little girls is mostly with those old enough to have developed modesty already.

This is, perhaps, why people don't have windows that go nearly to the floor anymore.

Ahhhh... this reminds me of my days of innocent nudity. Which I cannot remember, but Momma bear has a few grocery bags of photos documenting the nudist tendencies of my sister and me. It has taken me quite awhile recapture in part confidence of nude bliss.
(Drops his pants.)
Mmmmm... it is fun to feel the breeze as it blowns between your knees!

@Teddy: *drops a huge black curtain with the word CENSORED emblazoned on it*

Thank goodness you've got fur.

XD Oh, boy!

I just got this image of Mary's mother showing some visitors baby pictures of him in the nude.

Mary's Mother: And here he is in the bathtub, showing his rosy buns to the world.

Peter (by this time old enough to have modesty): Mom. Totally. Not. Cool.


Brigid said...

Journo: lol Thankfully, no pictures exist, though we do get a kick out of talking about it sometimes. (Words can paint wonderful, and terrible, pictures in the mind.)

Journo-SEAL said...

@ Tenacious-K: I agree with you. I had to bathe my half niece when she was little. I was 13 at the time. The one thing that confused me was how she didn't freeze her little tush off, since it was winter time!

Journo-SEAL said...

@Brigid: Thankfully for Peter especially XD

Although this comic strip could be the next best thing. At least you had the foresight not to draw him entirely nude, a la Calvin!

Brigid said...

@Journo: Foresight, perhaps. Mainly, it was a desire not to draw full-frontal nudity.
