Out of the Mouth of Baby

Me:  "You boys all really need new sneakers!  Baby, you have a brand new pair of Under Armours from Christmas!  Why don't you start wearing those instead of your ratty basketball sneakers?"

Baby:  "Nah.  I'm really more of a high-top guy."

Scene:  Walmart checkout line.

Baby (totally out of the blue):  "So how does a baby get IN your belly anyway?  Like, do you WISH for it to get in there, and then it just does??  Did you wish to have 3 boys and then you got us, Mom?"

Me:  "Yes.  That's EXACTLY how it happened.  Hey, want some candy?"

Baby:  "So after you die, do you get back awake?"

Me (not sure where this is going...):  "Nooooo..."

Baby:  "Yes you do!  Because there's houses in heaven, Mom!"

Me:  "Okaaay then."

Scene:  Upstairs bathroom.  Hubby was getting ready to take off the bandages from his shoulder surgery and I was helping him.  Hence, he was shirtless.

Baby (totally underfoot and examining Hubby closely):  "Wow Dad!  Your belly button!  I can't even see the end of it!  I could have a SLEEPOVER in your belly button!

(And then we died laughing.)

(Where, oh where, does he come up with this stuff?!  It's neverending!)

Public service message:  Do not, I repeat, do NOT Google image search belly buttons.  Especially after eating.  You'll thank me.

ha,ha, That was funny. Sometimes, I hate it when kids ask out of nowhere questions like that. But somehow I like it also, because it means they are curious. And they say "smart people are curious people"

One of my favorites from my boys, "Daddy, who put hair in your armpits?"
