Mommy what are these lumps?

1975ish Easter Sunday

A mother looks out the chapel door during the Easter Sunday Service to see her young daughter wandering through the church. The sweet little girl has golden curls, chubby cheeks, and a hand smocked dress made especially for the day. The mother goes to retrieve her little girl, wondering how she managed to escape the nursery without anyone noticing. Instead of returning her daughter to the nursery, she brings her back into the chapel for the reminder of the service.

The father is concerned that his daughter will disrupt this most holy of services so he decides to play with her quietly. He hides his hand behind the lapel of his suit and pokes in finger out intermittently in a hushed game of peak-a-boo. After watching her father play for several moments, she points at her father's chest a yells "BOOBIES" at the top of her lungs.

2009 Random Sunday

A mother is grocery shopping with her three year old son. He has blond hair, chubby cheeks, and is wearing one of his many dinosaur tee shirts. He's riding in the cart, even though he would rather be running through the store. The mother stops for a moment to look at Thank You cards, which she should have sent out two weeks ago.

The young boy reaches out with both hands and grabs his mother's chest. She startles and jumps back. "Mommy, what are these lumps?" he asks. His mother blushes, leans over and very quietly whispers "boobies".

Somewhere, the woman's parents feel a moment of smug satisfaction. They don't know when or where their grandson will exact vengeance for them, but they know he will. I can assure you, his mother is not looking forward to that moment.

Noooo!!! That's great! I love it! K'man pokes at the top of mine, but I can't blame him...I do, too, wondering when they'll go away. I know he'll eventually learn the Boo-Bee word and then we'll have to have lots of talks about how NOT to use that word!

You should have told him, "Those are my lovely lady lumps. Check it out." (a la Black Eyed Peas).

Just kidding.
