Out of the mouth of my babe

Since my last post, I've been reminiscing over some of the truly humiliating things that my daughter has said in front of people. Of course only the embarrassing stuff is said clear as a bell, not in toddler speak only a parent can understand.

We were walking down the street about 6 months ago and an older couple was walking towards us when Maddie said "mom, scoot over, here come some old people and we don't want them to fall on us". As if older people fall all over unsuspecting passersby. They heard. Embarrassing? Yes. The worst? No.

The worst that I can recall was when I went to pick her up at daycare, along with at least 5 other moms and dads. I had previously cut my thigh shaving (thigh is kind of stretching it as I cut myself closer to my knee) and my wonderful almost 4 year old says "hey momma, remember when you cut your crotch shaving?" Good Lord, I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

I love these stories, and Maddie will, too, when she is older. If you write them in a book for her, I think she will appreciate it. My dad insisted that I do this, and it was a great piece of advice. Both of my kids LOVE that book; it's been a source of joy and hilarity to all of us!

Had I been shaving while reading this, i would have cut myself to death. TOO funny.
Lo said loud as can be in the checkout line one day:
Mom, look at that man...he is HUUUUUGGGGEEE.
And he was. And he heard.
