Many people have asked me, "So how goes the Naked Strike?"
Well . . . it took me a while (six months to be precise), but we now have Semi-Naked Strike punctuated by moments of full dress. My solution (finally came to me about two weeks ago) was to get VERY creative.
Turns out Demon Baby has aspirations to be a Ninja.
So I bought him black fleece sweatpants with no tags (tags are a big no-no).
And black turtlenecks of all cotton (again, no tags).
And those are his Ninja outfits.
He will wear his Ninja clothes, commando (no underwear ever), punctuated by long stretches where he will wear his Ninja pants only, with no shirt, no matter how cold it is (as in picture in post below when my house's temperature was 62 and it was freezing outside). Socks are a no-go, so he's barefoot 24/7, even when I take him to church or the store.
At night, he still prefers to be naked, but I have convinced him that this ONE shirt he has (that is a hand-me-down from his brother) is protective Ninja nighttime armor. So he will wear THAT, with no underwear. It falls to his knees, so that's OK.
So it's now mostly a Semi-Naked Strike.
And my son is a Ninja.
It's a good thing I am a writer and creative.
