Okay, we all know I talk about the boobs too much. I’m sorry, it’s just the woman I’ve become after saying goodbye and then reuniting with them so many times. It’s how I deal with all the trauma. Now, Maddie, on the other hand… she’s just discovering these things. She actually knows most of her body parts and will proudly poke you in the EYEBALL or stick her finger straight up your nose if you ask her to locate them. It’s a bit painful.
How she discovered boobies was actually an accident. A month or so ago, I was getting out of the shower and had this ridiculous purple puffy shower cap on my head. I love the thing because it works super well, but Justin won’t even make eye contact with me while I wear it because it’s just so hideous. I’ve learned to use this to my advantage. I mean… what?
Well, little Maddie Jo skipped up to me from across the room as I was getting dressed and was pointing that little chubby finger up at me. “What’s thaaaat?” she asked (another favorite phrase of hers).
“This is Mommy’s shower cap!” I said. Maddie then stepped closer to me and fully poked me in the boob as she does with every other body part. She repeated again, “What’s thaaaaaaaat?????”
“Oh. OHH. Umm. Those are… boobies.” She’s only a year and a half, but still… AWKWARDNESS. Maddie repeated, “BOOBEEEEEZ!!!” and ran out of the bathroom saying it over and over. And she hasn’t stopped since.
So yesterday my grandpa took her swimming. My Grammy told me she pointed to his chest and told him he had boobies. She also yanks on people’s shirts in attempt to show everyone in the vicinity the boobies. It’s becoming a problem.
