Kids are sooo funny!

A recent conversation I had with my kindergartener went something like this…

Punkin: Mommy, why is your belly so floppy?

Me: Well, Mommy had three babies. Remember when Mommy’s belly was big like a balloon? When the baby was inside? Well, when the baby comes out, Mommy’s belly is like a balloon with no air inside, and that is why it’s floppy.

Punkin: Oh. (giggles)

Yes, the truth hurts, but it’s also pretty funny.

  • Funny! My 5 year old son said to me the other day
    “Mommy, you are NOT a movie star” … “oh” I said “why is that?” and he responded “because you have a BIG bum and BIG boobs ha ha ha ha ha . ” “Thanks honey” I said.
    Gotta love kids. I’ve had three too!

  • Mine is 17, and she still makes me giggle at my “cottage cheese rear”. It’s not really funny, but yet it is.

    That is funny!!! Kids speak the truth too much sometimes. My 3yr old told her brother the other day that mommy was a hippo and she liked riding on me. Thanks kiddo! Love your site! A great read for moms!

  • The best was when I was pregnant and my son, Rafael, asked my husband if he was pregnant, too, and patted his belly. Daddy was amused, yet decidedly not so.
