Baby Infestation and the Beeping Heart.
One of the reasons kids are so dang cool is because of the things that come out of their mouths. Here are a couple little gems that surfaced this weekend.
My daughter was pining over a friend who had recently moved away. She was talking about how she used to like to go over to her house and play, with one exception.
S: I miss A so bad. It was kind of fun when I went to her house and played.
Me: Im sorry she had to move away, that stinks.
S: Yeah. One thing though Mom...her house was INFESTED with babies.
Me: (shaking my head rapidly) Did you just say it was INFESTED with babies?
S: Yes. That means that there were a lot of babies there. You know...because of the daycare.
While in the car to somewhere I cant remember....
A: Mom...you might have to stop the car.
Me: WHY? Whats wrong? I glance in the review mirror and he is holding his hand over his chest
A: My heart isnt beeping.
This weekend it was made clear to me that the tooth fairy is a boy when a boy loses a tooth, but a girl when a girl loses one . All this time, I imagined a Tinkerbell like creature who is decidely female, exchanging money for teeth to all kinds regardless of gender. Apparently there is a gender specific TEAM of tooth fairies. Good to know.
