I’ve been staying with Audrey while her husband is out of town for a couple of days. And not since junior high have I been dissected as thoroughly as I’ve been by Audrey’s 4 little guys.
William (4): Why do you wear pajamas with pumpkins on them when it’s not Halloween?
Alex (3): Why does your hair stand up in the morning?
Benjamin (almost 2): Don’t like them… as I put on a new pair of running shoes…
Henry (9 months): Fixated on my face in utter fright as I rescued him from his crib early this morning… Whaaaaaat?
Then there were the why do you always wear lipstick comments, the why do you look different with your glasses on comments, the why are your arms stretchy comments, the how old are you, anyway comments, the potato chips are not good for you comments… and so many more.
Thank goodness the years and the experience have given me great humor and great wisdom… and most important, thank goodness I’m not in junior high school any more. If I had only known back then that boys are just, well, curious about these girl-things!
