I don’t know last week was for you, but it was quite hectic for me. I skipped my WWW Wednesday update, even though I managed to read a couple of books, so I’ll catch this week. In the meantime, it’s another edition of Goofy Monday and I must warn you this post contains crude language and frontal nudity…
What is love?
Son #2: “Mama, I LOVE your boobies!” (placing both hands on them)
I couldn’t help laughing the first time my five-year old boy said this to me last week, and I still laughed when he said it again a few more times later on. After taking a quick poll on Facebook, I drew the following conclusions:
- My son is probably straight and will turn in a typical guy, for whatever it’s worth.
- He may be missing his nursing days, but I’m not one of those moms who still nurses her school-age kids, so tough luck for him.
- Other boys his age do this, but here’s the interesting part: girls do it too, at least according to Sarsm! Maybe she’s the one who should be concerned. ;-)
Have your kids ever complimented your body parts?
By the way, here’s some sample nude art my eldest created last year, when he was just five. Guess who his unsuspecting subject was?
Private parts are private
Son #2 (from another room): “I’m a doctor. It’s OK if I touch your private parts.”
I was in the bathroom getting the kids’ bath ready but after hearing the beginning of that conversation, I had to see what was going on. My boys were getting undressed for the bath and my youngest was “playing doctor” with his brother. He recently had his annual check-up and his pediatrician had to feel him down there. The part he forgot was that she asked me for permission first. It’s interesting to realize how selective our memory can be…
Son #2: “Mama, I love you so much, your eyes will pop out!”
Whoever said first that love hurts was absolutely correct. By the way, if you’ve never read my post Love hurts – why do our children cause us pain every day?, you’ll find other ways my kids’s love has hurt me. I wrote the post almost three years ago, but most of it still happens on a regular basis. Have your kids ever hurt you with their love, or bodies?
