Dialog, Part 25

All this took place while I was trying to take a quiet shower. Yeah, don't I wish.

Miss-Miss: Examining me with much scrutiny and looking at herself in the mirror. Mama. Do I have arms just like you?

Me: Yes.

Miss-Miss: And do I have feet just like you?

Me: Yep.

Miss-Miss: How 'bout my hands?

Me: Yes, honey, just like mine.

Miss-Miss: Pulling up her dress. And my nipples? And my vulva? Just like yours?

Me: With my shampoo-covered head in my hands, shaking so hard with laughter that I'm about to pee in the shower. Yes, honey. Just like mine.

Honestly, I love my little man, but seriously, I have considered checking into a hotel at least once a week, for one night, so I can shower and use the bathroom by myself.

Western Momma said...

I totally understand that!

Hahaha, holy crap! That is awesome.

Long ago I was asked when "my peepee fell off" by my son. My daughter asked me (when the "stubble" was coming back) "Mommy? Is that mold?"

Kids and nudity.... always a recipe for the funniest questions.

"Quiet" shower. Sounds about right. Another good reason to use the toilet before stepping into the shower.

sybil law said...

Yep. Heard that!!!

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Hilarious! At least if you had peed on yourself you were already in the shower.

Too funny. I promise I will not interupt your shower when you're in for BlogHer.

I've been wondering when to stop being naked in front of the kid. But as we only have showers (Australian water saving measure) I don't reckon the kid is going to stop seeing me in my birthday suit until he's old enough to be trusted in the shower alone. 28?

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Other Heather - Hee hee! I've actually thought about doing that just for the peace and quiet. :)

Beverly - Scary, isn't it?

Hilly - Oh, she is awesome. And scary-inquisitive.

MetalMom - HA! MOLD! That's just awesome. :)

Patois - Now I know to use the toilet before my daughter asks anatomy questions.

Sybil Law - Haven't we all!

NATUI - Very true.

Employee No. 3699 - Thank you, m'dear. :)

A Free Man - HA! 28?!? I'm thinking 5. :)

Faiqa said...

Heh. I'm really big on saying the proper names of body parts (vagina, breasts, etc.) in front of my daughter.

We went to the clubhouse in our community once and I guess the high chair was bothering her. "MY VAGINA HURTS, THIS CHAIR IS HURTING MY VAGINA, I NEED TO FIX MY VAGINA."

The most awesome part? It was a Saturday afternoon, the entire clubhouse was filled with men who had just wrapped up their golf game and I was THE ONLY woman in the whole place, other than the waitress who was not present for this. My husband was *so* proud. Not.

Major backfire.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Faiqa - O.M.G. That is just AWESOME! Never met your daughter but I already know I just love her to pieces!

Bubblewench said...

I would have totally peed in the shower.

Gypsy said...

That's hilarious. And a bit clinical, really.
