Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
If you have had ever had an opportunity to meet with Lucy you will know that she is a vivacious little girl with quite the vocabulary for a 22 month old. A regular chatty Kathy she is, for sure, and I am becoming more and more flabbergasted by what comes out of her mouth these days. I would like to take the time to tell you that it was not me who taught her to say these things. It was not me who may have uttered these words within earshot of a listening child. It was not my child that used her new-found vocabulary words in public or at home.
Today Lucy and I were getting ready for our day, hanging out in the bathroom, brushing teeth, doing hair. The usual
morning afternoon routine. Now, please make note of the fact that it is not me who allows the dirty laundry to pile up in the corner of the bathroom for over a week. No way. I am a tidy mother who is strictly on top of things so it was absolutely not my daughter who found my "soiled" bra and held it up to her chest. It was not my baby who declared, "I NEED BOOBIES!"
With a giggle I did not retort with, "There will be enough time for all that. For now, all you get are two nipples."
I would like to assure you that Lucy would never shout "BOOBIE" in public. Walking through a department store lingerie section she would never in a million years loudly exclaim, "Pretty boobies, mommy. Pretty boobies!" Lucy would never repeat this phrase six or seven times and never would I have to
explain convince her that these 'pretty boobies' produced no milk for her.
If I was that mom and if it that was my "boobie" child I would be extremely proud of her in the fact that she knows all her body parts including some of the important internal ones such as the lungs, heart, stomach and brain. If it were me, I would be happy in knowing that she has the vocabulary to communicate effectively with me, enough to let me know that she needs boobies. Someday.
