I was getting ready for a shower when Micah ran in and announced, "I need to poo-poo, Mom."
So I dawdled a bit in the room, as he is usually quite fast.
Sure enough, he chirped "I'm done," just as I got all my clean clothes out of the closet.
As I washed him, he asked,
"Mom, what do you call that again? The one that only girls have."
"Err...? You mean where they shee-shee (pee) from?
Oh, man. Are we gonna hit the B&B Qs again?
"No, the other one you said."
Now I am puzzled and honestly scared. I don't know what he's asking about and I'm not sure if I have the time to prepare the answer appropriately. This is like a pop quiz of life!
"What 'baby' again?
"Oh, you mean ..."
Yeah, baby fat*. Now I remember. I like that."
He chuckles as he walked out of the bathroom, leaving me laughing, shaking my head and my jelly-belly.
Yeah, only girls (moms) have them: Baby-fat.
*It was my older sis who told me of the term "baby fat". It's the fat you gain with every baby you have. He over heard me telling that to Gadget-daddy and since that, more that 4 months ago, he will now and then bring up the topic.
