Mama's Losin' It

One of the prompts this week for Mama Kat's Writers Workshop is :

Who blind-sided you? Write about a time someone caught you totally off guard.

This happens to me a lot.
too much

When BIGGER girl was around 5, we attended a birthday party.
It was a great party. We ate cute mini pizzas, decorated cookies and had cake.
Games were played, treat bags were given out....
You know, Normal birthday party stuff

We got ready to leave and the birthday girl's mom asked BIGGER GIRL for a hug.
BIGGER GIRL jumped up and threw her arm around the mom's neck.
As she was coming down, SHE SPOKE (uh oh)
She asked the lady "Did you brush your teeth today?"

Being a mom means we have to THINK FAST and that's exactly what I did.

I said :
"Tee Hee...She's going through a phase where brushing is very important."
"She just can't get enough!"

I kept on babbling about how BIGGER GIRL thinks everyone has to brush like 50 times a day...blah blah blah

Bigger Girl was tugging at my pants leg trying to tell me that was NOT the reason.
(At least she's honest, huh)

I kept trying to SHOO her away and make her STOP but she kept on.
So, I started coughing.
I coughed a lot.
*we left*

I know my face was red.
and the fake coughing made it even redder


Another story that comes to mind is about the Lil Man.
He was about 3 (nearly 4) at the time.
We were sitting down acting silly when all of a sudden he says :
in an upbeat way-kind of like a song

Gimme 5
Up High
Down Low
Gimme a hug
Gimme a kiss
Now Let me touch your boob

:insert blank stare from me here:

I think you played it off pretty well actually! I hate those moments...I really do.

Were I to have a beverage in my mouth while reading the "now let me touch your boob", my laptop would be ruined!

I love to hear what kids have to say! Especially being a newer mom, it lets me know what I have to look forward to!

Oh how funny! oh Linda the "Let me touch your boob" was the best! Where in the blue blazes would he get that? Is it just a boy thing? Are they born with a facination with boobs? WOW that is so funny!!

The "let me touch your boob" is hilarious! I'm sure it wasn't so much at the time. My older son has had moments in public where I wanted to crawl under a table, and I'm just waiting for the times my little one starts blurting out what comes to mind. I love how kids lack a filter from brain to mouth sometimes.

Hehehehehe. As a mother of a boy..."Let me touch your boob" hit home!

Found your blog through Mama's Losin' It.

I think you were quick on your toes to play it off so well. I nearly spewed water at my screen when I got to "now let me touch your boob".
