Me: "That's not my chick, that's my chin."
Then she gives me 5 kisses. Next she wipes them all off.
Me: "Did you just wipe off my kiss?"
4 yo: "I don't like kisses, only hugs. You have germs, mawmaw."
Then she hugs me.
4 yo: "I feel like I'm going to cry, mawmaw!"
Me: "Why, because you love me so much?"
4 yo: "Because I missed you, mawmaw!"
She goes from one subject right into another one! The mawmaw thing is so funny. Sometimes you just have to stop and take some time to appreciate it. It all ends too fast.
Riding in the car (again), my conversation with my 7-year-old goes like this:
7 yo: "Mom, where does the baby come from when you have a baby?"
Me: (Oh no!) "What do you mean?"
7 yo: "When you have a baby, where does the baby come out?"
Me: "Well... Uh..."
Then my 4 yo interrupted us with something. Thank you!
About 5 minutes later...
7 yo: "So mom, where does the baby come out? Does it come out of you belly button?"
Me: "Well, sometimes. What got you thinking about babies? Oh! Did you see on Full House this morning about Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky having the twins?"
7 yo: "Yeah."
I didn't think he was mature enough for much more than that. I guess I should be better prepared about what I'm going to say the next time he asks!
