painful truth

reading books this morning with K.

me: "see, there's a daddy whale and a baby whale..."

K: "oh, no no no. it's a mommy whale. you can tell because mommies have big tummies."

me (feeling nervous): "they do? why do mommies have big tummies?"

K : "they have big tummies because they have babies in there."

me (relieved) "but your mommy doesn't have a baby in her tummy right?"

K :"nope."

me (deciding to still push the point) "so her tummy isn't big."

K :"no, your tummy is just fat."

me (refusing to drop the subject, who knows why.) "no, mommy's tummy isn't fat is it?"

K: "yeah it is. look right there!" (pointing) "it's really, really fat right there."

that little brat.
he's soooo cocky.

maybe i should tell him that his ass doesn't look exactly small in those pull ups he wears, either.

Not to worry Z mom. Think of the day your grandchild will tell your son that he has a beer belly. All scales are evened eventually.

Ohhhh!! I don't like that!
I had a little somebody tell me the other day that I looked like I had a baby in my belly. I told her to check again, girlfriend, or there's no ice cream tonight!!
