Funny things five-year olds say!
What is bathroom privacy? I lost mine a LONG time ago! It seems every time I need to use the ladies' room, I am not the only lady in there!! With four little girls, I have company or interruptions just about every time I use the bathroom! This story is a little graphic, so bow out now if you need to do so!
We went to the fair yesterday & had a great time. Of course we all had to use the bathroom, so 2 of the big girls followed me. I was wearing a pantiliner. Our 5-year old spotted it, of course, and said, "Mama, why are you wearing a DIAPER?" I quickly replied, "I'll explain it when you're older, but it helps Mamas have babies", not knowing what to say. Then she excitedly replied, "You're having another baby!! I want a boy baby. I do NOT want another GIRL baby". "No, sweetie, we're not having another baby. I'll explain it all in a few years". At that, I thought our conversation was over.
This morning I drove K's carpool that has 3 little boys in it along with K. There was a doll baby bottle in the car so we all teased about whose bottle it was. Then, K said, "My mommy wears diapers!!", and the boys all giggled. "No, she doesn't", they said. "No, really, she DOES. My mommy really does wear diapers! I'm not teasing!" I just sat & laughed because I knew exactly why she was saying that. Thankfully the boys just thought she was being silly!!
