Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

Are those footballs?

Angela at Unexpected Art has started a grand tradition aptly named “Mouth of Babes Monday!”  You post some seriously funny comment, question or observation your children have made recently.

So the other day, Joseph, my 8-year-old, was waiting in the car with his great-grandmama who has been staying with us for a few weeks.  (She is so much fun and has a winning sense of humor!)  Anyway, she relayed this story to me.

A lady got out of her late model Cadillac and headed toward our van.  Edward was apparently riveted to her movements because he asked,

“Grandmama, do you think that lady has footballs tucked up in her shirt..see there?”  Grandmama stifled a laugh and finally answered, “No, son, I don’t think those are footballs.”

He looked incredulous.  “You mean they are her…her…her bosoms???”

“Yes, Joseph, I believe they are,” she answered.

Then his mind must have raced wildly because he sort of muttered under his breath, “I sure hope I don’t ever have to get in the car with someone like her.”

I guess this is all good news???  A healthy dose of stranger danger?

And bonus… he’s afraid of women with large… uh, bosoms!

Actually, Elizabeth, that is not funny seeing that as with age (and vicious children) mine are starting to take on the same shape. SCAR-RY!

I LOVE the fact that Edward used the word “bosoms.” I would so love to have a conversation with him! What a smart and articulate, not to mention FUNNY kid!! That’s great!

He’ll probably never want to ride in MY car then.

rofl. I can see how they might take up a lot of space in the passenger compartment of any vehicle, a couple of footballs stuffed in a shirt. That could smother a kid his size, I’m guessing.

Well considering boobs are always a topic of conversation in my house since I have girls who so desparately want them. I just think it is so funny he called them bosoms! Who says that anymore?
