Conversation with the 3 year old

3 year old insists on booting it into the bathroom whenever she hears me running a bath. While she is unbelievably adorable (like her mother), today she was being especially annoying (not sure where she gets that?) and she kept trying to touch my boobs which were covered by a cloth (pretty sure she gets that from her father).

The following chat resulted:

Me: "Boobs are private. Quit staring at mine"
3 yr. "But they're so fat"
Me: "Gee thanks"
3 yr old: (as she pokes my boob) "well, they ARE"
Me: "That is your fault, my darling, now bugger off. Boobs. Are. Private.
3 yr old: "ugh"
Me: "Don't worry, you'll have your own someday"
3 yr old: "And I'm gonna touch them as much as I want to!!"
Me: *hysterical laughter* "I'm sure you will!"

Ha! She'll become far less enamored with them when they're her own and sagging to her knees. I think conversations like these are what I'm missing out on by not being a mother yet. So I get to live vicariously through you. Thanks a ton, Colie! :)

Hahahahaha! 3 is such a hilarious age! Hilarious and maddening, but yes...hilarious.

Colie said...

@Katie-if you decide to have kids, their brutal honesty can be hilarious...but she is also the one person who always tells me if I look pretty and I have even been compared to her favorite princess on a really good day ;-) Although yesterday I took her shopping with me and tried on a bathing suit while she laughed and pointed. Sooooo good for my self esteem!!! Ha!

Colie said...

Yup, Dweej - Maddening is a great word to describe this age - entertaining and maddening!

That is funny. I have boys. Our conversations revolved around why girls didn't have a penis.. Got pretty pissy at one point and told them it falls off if you touch it too much!

Next time lock the bathroom door and let daddy deal. I learned that lesson fast. Now the boys tell there grandma i spend to much time in the bathroom. I just lock myself in for quite.

Hahaha-I often fake a lactose intolerance episode and hide in the bathroom with my iPod for a break! I think it's payback because my Mom swears I never let her go to the washroom alone!!

3-year-olds are great! Gotta love their honesty!

Haha, awesome. Your intro paragraph had me laughing as much as the little one's convo. Hope ya'll had a great weekend!

Sunny said...

Hilarious! Boobs are interesting things to many people of all sizes ;)

And then there's my daughter who will be sitting on the couch, watching a movie, drinking some apple juice, and say "There's a stick in my 'gina." At which point I do a double take, ask her to repeat it, and then we get into a conversation as to why she thinks she has a stick in her vagina, until she gets distracted and it's obvious she's just being, well, her.

I weep for my sanity in the future.

Colie said...

@Lindsey - thanks! You too, eh! Had to throw in some Canadian accent to go with your ya'll :)

Colie said...

@Joshua - HILARIOUS! This makes me so relieved. Ever since the ham in the vagina incident, I've been wondering what I'm in least now I know I won't be alone in my insanity!

@Sunny - Thanks sugar! They are indeed. I quite enjoy mine :) Especially when my arms are up and they're more like my 22 year old boobs ;-)

Lala said...

Funny! I had a similar experience with my 4-year-old, although mine may be slightly more cringe worthy (I think). My daughter pointed at me while I was changing and said, "I used to suck on those". Nice.

Anyway, great blog! You have my vote.

LMFAO same I said when I discovered the penis is a fun thing to play with.

Even after you reach your 30s, it's still a lot of fun.

Colie said...

Oh I know Porks-the two boys at my house are the same way!

Colie said...

Oh dear god, Lala!!! I cringed - for reals.

Thanks for popping by :)
