quote of the day

April 13th, 2009

My son, admonishing me: “You’re not supposed to say ‘butt,’ Mom. You’re supposed to say ‘rear end’ or ‘beehive.'”

    Can I steal quote of the day for my blog? My daughter is saying all kinds of funny S%$T. She asked the super pregnant first grade teacher if her baby was going to come out of her mouth. Another funny one that I have to blame myself for is that I did not think she would understand “privates” and so I called it the “potty spot”. When she entered kindergarten I thought we should make the switch to privates because I did not want her to be made fun of and I also thought she could understand the concept. Now she is always saying….”big kids say privates, not potty spot.”

    Hey! We call it a beehive on the dogs! Who else does that?
    For the kid, it’s butt. Or heinie. Or behind. Or fanny. Even though I know what that means in England. I don’t WANT to give him a complex, but sometimes I just can’t help it.

    This morning, he kept hanging on like a monkey, right on the front, hugging me, and telling me, “I not a boy, I baby.” Sweetest thing ever.

    A few years ago my oldest son, now age twelve, asked me what a condom was.

    So I explained, like all good progressive parents. In detail.

    He looked at me with a face of utter alarm. Then he carefully raised his hands to his ears. “Mom,” he said. “I’m going to forget you said any of that.”
