Wait, did our mothers put you up to this?

The Scene:  MB and I are at our neighbors' (R & his wife J), watching the Colts-Patriots game. We're sitting side-by-side on the couch, and R & J's two daughters, ages 3 and 5, are sitting on / with me.

Three, examining my ears:  What are these? Are these earrings?

Me:  Yep, those are earrings.

Three:  Why do you have earrings in your ears?

Me:  Uh...because I do? Doesn't Mommy have earrings? No, I guess not.

Three:  Mommy has an earring in her nose.

J:  *laughs, points to her nose stud*

Me:  Oh, yeah. I guess she does.

Three:  Do you have an earring in your nose?

Me:  Nope.

Three, pointing at MB:  Are you his wife?

Me:  Yes, I am.

Three, pointing to my hand:  Cuz that's your wedding ring?

Me:  Yep.

Three:  Did you get married?

Me:  Yes, I did.

Three:  Do you have a baby?


The Scene:  a few hours later, same couch

Five, wisely:  When people get married, they have babies.

Me:  Um...eventually?


  1. Kids have a real knack.

    My husband's cousin has a son (who's actually a totally little snotball) who asked me if I was having another baby cause I was so fat. (His mother looks like Victoria Beckham) I almost drop kicked him over the fence.

  2. Oh is THAT how it works? My bad.

  3. maybe it was for the best that the discussion didn't delve into exactly where married people get those babies.
