QUOTE OF THE DAY (OR MORE): "No, no. You don't understand. This is an '89 Calico. I'm pretty sure that exceeds the Kelly Blue Book value. The cat's totaled." --A comedian whose name I forget talking about a vet who presents a $3,000 bill for a 12-year-old cat

It's all in the genes

One of my best friends has three children. When her daughter, the oldest, was 4, my (very intelligent, really!) friend was simultaneously nursing a 10-month old and pregnant with her third (don’t ask; apparently it’s possible to get pregnant on the last day of one’s period – who knew?)

My friend was with her 4-year-old daughter in the shower, sleepily trying to kill two birds with one stone by getting herself and her daughter clean while the 10-month old slept.

Ever curious and cute, the four-year-old girl gazed up at her pregnant mommy.

“Mommy,” she observed, “your boobs are loooonnngggg.”

My friend chuckled and explained what happens to a woman’s body while she’s nursing (AND pregnant, no less).

The four-year-old took it all in and thought for a moment, quite pensive. She again looked up at her mommy and then down at her own chest, the cogs turning furiously in her four-year-old mind.

She then concluded, quite reasonably: “I must have gotten Daddy’s boobs.”


  1. Ha! Four year olds really know how to put a mommy in her place.

  2. So funny! I love it! My four year old is constantly saying things that really keep me on my toes.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and it is so hard for me to let things go. I really do want everything to be perfect but your right I do need to get myself some me time and let some things go.


Please feel free to let me know what you think - especially if you like it. If not, please reconsider (just kidding!) I can take constructive criticism! Really I can...
