Baabbyyyyyy Legggggsssss

I'm loving these things.

I ordered Marin 3 pairs. I especially love that they make them for boys too.



Me: So which planets did you talk about today?
Joan: Ummm, Jupiter, and Mars, and...
Kate: That one! Like what Daddy has!
(David and me-in our heads: What? Ur-anus? How do they know that??)
One beat, two beats, three beats go by...
Joan: You know, like what DADDY has?
Me (light bulb!): Oh, you mean Venus?
Joan: NO! It's PENIS. My teacher said so! Penis.
Me: No, actually, the planet is called VVVV-enus.
Okaaaayyy, whatever you say.
(Can't you just hear them at preschool? "My daddy has one of those!")


Joan, having a disgusting habit of keeping a booger on her top lip, and licking it slowly, like a lollipop, shrieks at David when he wiped her face (unknowing of her lovely habit)- "HEY! I was eating that!"


Kate: I don't want to get my ears pierced because it would HURT. I'm just going to wait for a hole to open up, and then stick an earing it it.


Me: Well, how do you tell a girl baby from a boy baby?
Joan: By its clothes!
Me: But when they are born, they don't have any clothes on. How do we know what the baby is then?
Joan: By it's hair!
Me: No. Think about it. Do you know the difference between boys and girls?
Joan: By their voice!

(So my girls think there is a planet called Penis, like Daddy has, but have NO idea how to tell boys and girls apart. Interesting.)

I love those Baby Legs. At our house, you definitely can't tell a girl baby from a boy baby by its hair. Bald as a jaybird.

Oh those baby legs are cute!

And those conversations? Priceless. We had a similar misperception one time:

girl: what's in these cookies?
me: just oatmeal and chocolate chips.
girl: I thought I saw a peanut.
boy: Hey, I have a peanut! [and proceeds to drop trou to demonstrate]

We have those very same ones! Of course we don't wear them here b/c it's freaking hot, but I thought they were adorable.

My SIX-YEAR-OLD boy and I recently had a similar conversation. I was CHANGING HENRY'S DIAPER at the time, and William STILL couldn't think of any way we could tell if Henry was a boy or a girl, other than "by his name?"

To be fair to William, we do have four boys and only one girl, and he's never around when I'm changing diapers, nor does he see his parents naked. So I guess it IS a little tricky. Still! I thought he'd know! (He knew once I reminded him.)

This is hysterical. Love it.

I am looking into those baby legs. They look perfect for crawlers!

I hope you saw the discount code I had posted on my blog for the baby legs! They look especially cute on your baby!

And I love, love, love the things that come out of preschoolers' mouths!

Those are pretty darn cute. Cute, cute, cute.

I love overhearing those kinds of conversations. Between Kate's ear piercing scheme and Joan's thoughts on gender differences I love seeing how kids' minds work! Too funny.
