December 5 07

when i ask Isabella to smile for the camera, she always does the same thing.

she says, “i love cheese!” which is her version of saying cheese. and then she does this:

every single time i haul out the camera. Last night, however, while we were Hanukah/Hannukah/Chanukah’ing (choose your own spelling because i’ve totally given up) it up, when i pulled out the camera and called her name, instead of her usual, “i love cheese” she said “i love boobs

(by the by, you can check out some pictures from last night up on Fabulous. come on over!)

i swear. you can’t make this shit up, people!
she has also developed this fascination with boobs. we have long, lengthy discussions about it.

“mommy, i don’t like your boobies.”

“what? why not?” how could she not? does she not know perfection when she sees it? (do you guys not know sarcasm when you see it?)

“they are too scary”

“they are not scary!”

“i don’t have any boobies.”

“no sweets, you don’t.”

“i have…um…nipples!”

“yes. i have nipples too…but that’s a whole other discussion”

“i don’t want boobies”

“okay, you don’t have to have them. at least not until you are older. if you’re anything like mommy, you’ll wake up with them when you turn 16. and boys will want to be your friend.”

we have this discussion, or something to this effect, daily.

bring on the google hits. please. i’d love to have something boob related and NOT something Harry Potter related. because, even though i told Sarah that my biggest search was “homer simpson vagina tattoo” and it was, i swear it was, it’s recently been overtaken by “Harry Potter naked” and “Daniel Radcliffe nude” and “Harry Potter naked with horse”

who knew that a very disturbing harry potter dream would bring out the searchers? there also seems to be a lot of people looking for therapists in Toronto who spank. i cannot, for the life of me, figure out where this one came from.

  1. My husband bathes our daughter. It’s his thing. In order to avoid getting drenched, he always takes his shirt off. He recently had to explain to our 19-month old what nipples were after she kept grabbing them. And now, she finds it hysterical to look down people’s shirts, and ask “Nipples?” Yes, honey, we all have them. Some people have four/

  4. your daughter thinks your boobs are scary.
    your son thinks your hoo-hah looks scary.

  5. Ok lets see them. We’ll be honest and tell you if they are scary. Promise.

    I like cheese too.

  6. Boobies must be this week’s obsession. My son was snuggled up on my chest listening to a bedtime story, but insisted on fluffing my chest like one would fluff a pillow. I’m like ‘hands off buddy’… not something to be fluffed! LOL…

  7. Ha, I love the “YUCK”. If she keeps up with that you’re going to have an easy job when she hits her teens!

  9. GReat post!

    Man, I should have hated boobs more as a child. Maybe I would have woken up with more suitable ones later on.

  11. I worked at a summer camp for children with Autism one year, actually for about 5. One summer, we had a little boy who bit, and humped, and pinched. One day, when we were at a swimming pool, he started to pinch a little girl who was there with her Mom & Dad. I picked him up, trying to hide myself from his arm reach of pinching me. I eventually sat him on a half concrete tube shaped leaning post and held his hands above his head. When all of a sudden, down he swooped and bit my right breast. I couldn’t get him to let go. The closest co-worker by me was a male (of course). It hurt so much.

  13. Oy, she’s so dang cute! (and I get TONS of “celebrity feet” searches. TONS!! And, of course, all kinds of wacky monkey searches…….)

  14. You should try to record that conversation next time before Isabella brings it up. She’ll get a kick out of that in her adult years!

  15. LOVE the cheese face!
    And the boob thing is too funny. All my kids were boob obsessed at 2/3..4.. My little girly wants boobs so bad, I wish she hated them;)

  16. One post about Grey’s Anatomy a couple of weeks ago brought about four dozen folks to my site who wanted to know why women cried after sex. I love the internets.
