The "Ladies"

Livvy was sitting with me during the movie tonight and she looked over at me and started looking at and touching my...um...breast, boob, insert word of choice here. And before I go any further, I'd just like to point out that this is sadly not the first conversation we've had about "these". My tiny, inquisitive four-year-old likes to ask too many questions about nipples as well. She seems to be fascinated by them...she'll grow out of that right?

So, she's pushing down on my shirt and a dialog ensues...

Olivia: "Mommy it looks big right there."

Me: "That's because it is big."

Lifting up her shirt and staring at her nipples: "I have tiny ones. These little tiny ones on the kids that means they're kids. On the mommies and daddies they are big."

Then in typical Livvy fashion, she abruptly changed the subject and became very "Elf-like".

"I like to smile. I think you lost a tooth. I think I lost 4 toothes..." and on and on and on she goes...

I asked her jokingly the other night "Do you ever shut up?" Her reply? "No." Surprise, surprise...


  1. It must be a "4 year old thing", Rosie is the same way - on both issues - non-stop talking and fascination with certain body parts. It amazes me how much she can talk....and talk...and talk. I know someday I'll miss it, but that's not today ;)

  2. Love that she said "mommies and daddies are big". Daddies?! That's perfect. (My husband just called his "Moob's" the other night... unfortunately, he's right ;-> )

    Thanks so much for being a part of the Virtual Girls Night Out! Happy VGNO!

  3. Oh man, my 3 (almost 4) year-old is exactly like this! His volume level is broken at 15 on a scale of 1-10! =)

    Sweet post. LOVE the Elf reference!

    Following you back from Friday Follow. Thank you for stopping by.

  4. Gotta' love those little ones! They say the funniest things. Thanks for visiting MiM's Mini Tales today...Kathy
