Way-Too-Candid Conversation With A Three-Year-Old

Mommy, your butt is big.

(sigh) Yes, it is.

My butt is little.

Right again!

Mommy?

(bracing for it) Yes?

I can put...(demonstrating) three, four, FIVE hands on YOUR butt!

OK. Thanks for the info.

Mommy, your butt is big, and mine is little.

Honey, can we stop talking about my butt?

Ummm...I don't think so.

  1. My SIL and neice and I went to see a movie where this chick had a baby and, of course, looked amazing afterwards. My neice promptly said "she just had a baby! She doesn't have the fatness! After my mommy had a baby she still had the fatness!"
    lmao

  3. Oh girl--it must have been "Observe Mommy's Body" day on the Planet Toddler--my son Ian (3.5) looked at me this morning (in my skivvies) and said, "Mommy, I wish you had a big penis."

    Righty-o then!

  4. This summer, after climbing a set of stairs with the boys (while wearing shorts, of course) my youngest said in his outdoor voice, "Look! When mommy stops walking, her leg keeps wiggling."

  5. Happened to me, too-Nathan was at the Doctor's office and a med student was asking him some questions when he looked at me and said "Mom, did you know the hair on your forehead is totally grey?"
    Yeah, thanks for noticing,sweetie.

    And is that a dancing Professor Snape in Christie's profile photo?

  8. LOL! The my boobies versus mommy's boobies conversations with a 3-year-old girl are fun, too. We've also had the mommy's tummy is "squishy" discussion. :)

  11. Oddly enough, this was the leading cause of death in children aged 3-4 years before child protection laws were enacted.

  14. But did you point out that your chest is bigger and that that is what matters most later in life?? (well besides personality, sparkling converstation, a brain, wit and charisma )

  15. Hahahahaha! My niece just recently informed my mother that she has "squishy skin" and then asked her when she was going to die. I tell ya -- even though they are toddlers, they can throw out the zingers!

  16. Yes, but your brain is big, too.

    And hers is little.

  18. Note to self: save this entry as antidote to the maternal instinct to procreate. Who needs that sort of abuse?

  20. Children are a charm. I told my grandmother that she was fat when I was little and she started a diet. Grown-ups are too sensitive. heh
