Julian is best friends with my sister's little girl, Penny. They're always looking out for each other and Penny is happy to play Power Rangers--she just wants to be the pink one. Because they get along so well, Katie and I get them together a lot (which gives me a break from being Pink Power Ranger. Although, I really look awesome in my pink high waisted shorts and midriff shirt).
One day when I was getting the kids in the car to take Penny back home, I was buckling her into her booster seat when she patted my chest and said, "Jaynie, you have boobies." (Look what Katie teaches her kids!)
Surprised, but not really, I said, "Yes I do."
"Because all mommies have boobies." Penny stated, matter-of-factly.
"Yeah, but my mommy's are SO big." came Julian, deciding to join the conversation.
Then Penny, "But my mommy's are not so big. They're just little."
Then Julian, "But my mommy's are SO big."
Which reminded me of the time I left a highlighted verse of Solomon's Song on Katie's bed in high school. Chapter 8, verse 8: "We have a little sister, and she hath no breasts: what shall we do for our sister in the day when she shall be spoken for?"
I also left a biology text book open to a page with the male anatomy on it for her. Twice. (I was always looking out for her!)
Unfortunately, if you inserted "love handles" in place of "boobies" in the conversation, it would still hold true. I'm thanking heaven that Solomon left out the older sisters verses!
