The Mouths Of Babes



Three funny things Beck has said to me lately:

While walking through Costco, I asked my kids what they wanted to be for Halloween. Very loudly Beck shouted, "I want to be a PRINCESS!!!" Three or four people near me laughed while trying to look like they weren't laughing. It didn't make me feel any better when Daphne followed up with "I want to be a Tiger." Don't these kids get gender rolls???

Today Beck said, inexplicably, "Mom, I wish my poop was RED." No idea why. Really, I can't imagine.

Later, I asked Beck how he thought food was getting to the baby in my tummy. He looked at me for a minute, then making his little fingers into a pointing shape, he traced a line from my mouth down to my stomach (and I thought he was being so clever) then up my side, down my arm and finally up to my ear. Close, buddy, close.

You've done good, Mom! They say they learn from the parents...(I think you're fine.)

Is it just me, or does he totally look like your dad?

Well, if you let him drink the blueberry flavored milk, his poop will be bright blue.

Shows you how out of it I am. I didn't even know you were pregnant OR that the food gets to the babies via the arm OR that men can also breastfeed OR that your kitty was depressed (or that you even had a kitty) OR ... I've had to spend a little time on your blog catching up.

So, congratulations!!! I hope your pregnancy is going well. I hope your kitty is easier to live with. And I hope men never do breastfeed because they'd never make it through the first week. BTW, I was checking into a doctor's office yesterday and saw that one mother was signing her son in for his appointment - his name, Anakin Skywalker. I'm not kidding.

Kids are the best! I think Beck would be dashing on matter what he wanted to be for Halloween :)
