So there we were this yukky rainy morning, wrapped up in my favorite Ralph Lauren duvet, having the kind of bleary eyed, just woke up don’t harass me yet, cosy snuggle it is only possible to have with a sleepy, wriggly three year old, telling each other hobgoblin stories and praying the rain would go off so we wouldn’t have to splash our way to nursery, when  the little monster  shattered my ego  forever…

"I love you Mummy"

"Oh Sweetie, I love you too"

"Know  why I love you Mummy?"

"Because  I make scrumptious  pizza babba?"

"No Mummy, your pizza is ridic-il-lious."

"Oh I’m sorry.Then why Finn?"

"Cos your boobies is like potatoes Mummy."

Wa-hey! Robbie Williams come and get me now! I’m quite a catch. My boobies are like potatoes.

Somebody shoot me.

    I love hearing the funny things that Finley says–he's such a riot. Children do have a way with words that can be demoralizing at times.

    What is is with boys and boobies??
    When my boy was about 3 he asked my nana "why are your boobies on your tummy?" She did see the funny side thankfully, and I think at age 78 we can allow her less than perky C-cups!

    I think it's a compliment. Potatoes are pretty firm and depending on placement, quite perky!

    Ah bless him. My son thinks there's still a baby in my tummy and the baby is 8 months old! They mean well don't they. While I'm here… I found the most scrumptious thing today. Rose flavoured milkshake! It's absolutely delicious and so Brocante Home. I found it in the Indian food section in Tescos. Pour it into a pretty glass and drink ice cold, yummy!

    a friend of mine was sitting on the couch with her 3 yr old boy one day when he grabbed the bit of tummy that had rolled out from under her top and informed the room that 'mummy has grown some more boobs!' – better potatoes than extra boobs!

    Boy did I get a good laugh! I remember my mom had told me about a story she heard. There was two old ladies in a beauty shop. In comes a 16 year old girl with 2 roses tatooed on her breasts. The elderly women kept on staring at them and finally one of the women told her "In about 30 years, your rose tatooes are going to look like long stem roses"!
