They say moms can have it all. But if that includes a random person texting me a photo of my kid, stark naked, standing in my window for all the neighborhood to see, I'll take a hard pass.
That wasn't the case for Jeni Boysen, a mom of two boys in Cedar Rapids, IA, who foolishly thought she could take a five-minute shower while her 2-year-old son, Dax, was diapered up on the couch watching Peppa Pig.
Although her toddler was still camped out in front of the TV when she came out of the shower, she got a text that he'd been up to something.
"Your kid is naked in your window," the text message from her neighbor read, just before another text came through. It was a photo of Dax standing, completely naked, on the second-floor windowsill — and he appeared to be looking right into the camera. A single emoji did the hard work of covering what that diaper he ripped off should have.
The neighbor, as good a Samaritan as they come, quickly noted that she'd already deleted the photo in question before adding, "But I looked up when I got home and there he was."
Jeni told POPSUGAR that her son was apparently waving at the neighbor, who apparently "had such a bad day and it just made her laugh so hard." As if the screenshot wasn't hilarious enough!
"Ya know, sometimes you think you're doing OK at life and then you get a message like this from a neighbor," she wrote on Facebook about the incident. "I just cried I laughed so hard."
Maybe this is what having it all looks like?
