A toddler's introduction to puberty . . . .

I had probably the funniest conversation (if you can call it that) with Josie this morning. She woke up before I was completely ready for work so she hung out with me in the bathroom while I put on makeup, etc. She got to put on some moisturizer and play with the makeup brushes so she was pretty happy.

So I hadn't put on a shirt yet and was just in a bra so this was fascinating to her. So far-she's asked what "those" were before and I tell her Mama's chest or Mama's breasts. Unlike SOME people (Natalie!), I don't want an embarrassing Target moment when she shouts out something about another woman's "boobies". As if she doesn't embarrass me enough with nose-picking, tantrums, eating food off the floor,etc . . . . . .

However, this morning when she asked "What's that?" and I gave my usual answer, she's all "No, that's an Ariel!" (Ariel=Little Mermaid who wears the purple clamshell bra).

She continues:

"That's an Ariel. And that's an Ariel. You have TWO Ariels. I don't have any Ariels." (I wish I had this on video because all of her hand motions were hilarious.)

"No sweetie. You'll get your Ariels when you're older . . . ."

That is so cute! Speaking of Ariels, my mom bought Josie some Ariel socks when she was out shopping the other day. :)

Adorable! At least when she screams that in Target you can play it off. LOL!

No way! that is SO funny. Isn't it amazing how a child's mind links things together.
I'm also glad to know that I do not have the only child that eats things off the floor.

So basically you're saying you don't want Josie doing what Mattix did while we waited in line for the restroom at Tar*get, which invovled pointing to a NINETY year old woman's knocker and yelling "boobs, boobs, boobs" ??? Yeah, not good. The thing is, I don't know where he got it. I'm guessing TV. I wanted to DIE.

Girls sound so much easier...
