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.

I always thought the tooth fairy was female, too. Good to know, indeed!

Gender specific tooth fairies? I really thought ALL fairies were girls. Hmmm....

I always thought the Tooth Fairy was a guy. I don't know why since obviously a fairy is supposed to be a girl right?

Yeah, I always thought TF was a girl too. Huh. But it makes sense. Genea thought girls were born from Mom's and boys were born from Dads, so putting all the pieces together now, I get it!
LOL!

Gracie has a "beeping heart" too! I love it! Had no idea about the gender based tooth fairy, but I had all girls! Thanks for the funny post- kids do say the funniest things!

Many Tooth Fairies. Know for sure because my mom told me that she'd be my kids' tooth fairy after she died if that were possible and voila! she is. The stuff just appears and it's all stuff that she'd give! Amazing! ;)
