Conversations with the 3 year old ...

... are so much simpler than conversations with the 4 year old.

Yesterday I was getting dressed. The 3 year old was sat on my bed.

3 year old - "What are they for?"

Me - "What?"

3 year old - "Your boobies"

Me - "When you were a baby they gave you milk"

3 year old - "Do I have eyeballs in my head?"

Me - "Yes, you have two"

... and with that he went about his business.

The same conversation with the 4 year old would have gone on for half an hour and she would have waited until we were in public before saying the word 'BOOBIES' really loud. By the end of my interrogation I would have needed a lie down and/or a large glass of wine.

So true. Mine save all the "good" questions for the grocery store.

My daughter used to save the best questions for the supermarket checkout queue, the library or any other place where lots of adults will be avidly listening to hear your response. And guess what : they get more obscure/embarassing dependent on audience entertainment value! i.e. "why does that women have a moustache?" or worse "why have you got a beard mummy?"!!!!
