The Mouths Of Babes



Today Beck came up to me with a mini Halloween slinky he got in his trick or treat bag. He stretched it out in front of my face and said, "Let's see how big your head is, Mom."

He looked at the slinky as if it had measurements. I was curious to see what he'd decide to tell me. And then came the result:

"Wow! You're 14 dollars!"

That's a pretty big (expensive?) head.

I think you have a new career here.

I think your head is undervalued...

What a cutie. And make that $1400 dollars, you're brilliant.

I can do you one better.
Two days ago in the bathtub, my three year old daughter told me I was pregnant.
Me: "No, I'm not"
Her: "Yes you are, mom. Your belly is big."
Me: "That's my babyweight from you. And a cheeseburger."
Her: (unconvinced) "Let's get that baby out of there."

I wish she would measure my head.

Perhaps this explains why I was less than enthusiastic about the tankini post. :)

You and Amy are hilarious! I'd rather have a big head than a big belly, but unfortunately I'm a fat micro-cephalic.
