Kids Say the Darnedest Things

Speaking of postpartum shape, Alyssa got a good chuckle out of me yesterday. In search of new shirts, I hauled all 3 children into the teeny little dressing room & was trying on an assortment of shirts in various styles & sizes. I was feeling a bit frustrated at my lack of success when Alyssa announced, "Your boobs are just too big to look good in any of those." Yes, there were others in the dressing room, and no, I've never heard those words used to describe myself at any point in my life. Yes, I laughed. And while these same children can inspire great frustration on my part, they also help me to remember how to smile & laugh heartily at the times I need it most. After all, they were the first ones to tell me that I was so skinny just days after Genna was born. Don't all new moms need to hear that, 'cause the reality is that although we feel much thinner after giving birth, most of us are nowhere near being able to be described as such. :) So even though they haven't exactly been charming today, I think I'll keep 'em! :)

Too funny! I can't say that I've heard that particular comment, but I've had my fair share of LOUD child comments in the dressing room.
