Out of the Mouths of Babes

So I am sitting in the car line with Cameron and Quincy this morning when I hear Cameron say, “Well, I’m going to shave my hairy wee-wee.” 

This.  Ahem (clearing throat).  I mean, THIS, in response to a comment from Quincy about Justin Bieber being her boyfriend.  I choked back a laugh quickly enough to get out, “Where did you hear that Cameron?”  I always hold my breath after I ask that question for fear that the response will implicate me or Greg.  We’ve realized over time that the girls possess one super-hero quality, and that one quality would be super-sonic hearing.  So there is no telling really where they would have heard something like that.  Not that Greg and I go around talking about that stuff, but…   

She quickly offered up another little girl in her class as the culprit.  (Whew!)  I tried to remain calm and, very subtly, dig a little deeper so that I could fully understand the context of her conversation with this other little girl.  I mean, it could just be that she walked in on her mom shaving her bikini line or something like that.  But I got nothing more from Cameron.   

So I have a dilemma.  Do I file this under “kids-say-the-darndest-things” and move on?  Or do I mention it to the teacher to alert her to the kinds of conversations going on in her classroom?

  1. charlotte recently asked me if when she gets to be older, she will have hair too.

    im like…uh.

    Her daddy pipes in..yes honey. Probably.



    • Thank God for daddy! LOL! My husband has no stomach for having any of those conversations with the girls. Our oldest is 10 and her Growth & Development film is two weeks from tomorrow – she reminded me this evening. I’m sure I’ll get some crazy questions after that.

    • A few months ago Cameron told Quincy she was going to “kill” her. Long story short, we discovered that a little boy in her class was telling her that every day several times a day. We definitely talked to the teacher about that one, but I could go either way on this one.
