Do you have a holder?

Well, I was on Devin's blog this morning, and she has a cute post about funny stuff her boys say. It got me thinking about when Bubber was little. He used to say some really interesting things. When Bubber was about a year old, my ex and I bought a Rottweiler. She was a good dog, and Bubber LOVED her. When he got a little bit bigger, Bubber used to tell people about his dog, and how she was "black and nohogany" (her coloring was black and mahogany). After Bug was born, if I needed to let the dog out, Bubber would "pay attention on" Bug. One of Bubber's favorite phrases when he was 2 was "well, actually..." He used that a lot when telling stories. And he told a LOT of stories. Come to think of it, he still does...LOL

One of my favorite things, though, was once when I was taking a shower. Up until he was 2, I would let Bubber take showers with me sometimes. So we were in the shower, and he's jabbering away. Pretty soon, he looked up at me and asked, "Mama, do you have a holder?" I said, "I don't know, do YOU have a holder?" He said, "Yes." So I asked him what it was. He reached down and touched his penis. "Um, NOOOO, Mommy doesn't have a holder. Only boys have holders, honey." Needless to say, Bubber didn't shower with Mama any more after that!!

Of course, now that I'm thinking about funny stuff Bubber used to say, I've got all kinds of funny stuff going through my brain - like the time Puckey pulled my coat open in the grocery story and said, "Nipples Mama!" Not once, not twice, but three times! Good thing there weren't tons of people in the store at the time. LOL Or the time Bubber was next to me at the cash register and he felt the compulsion to inform me that the cashier had a "HUGE NOSE, MAMA!" (Yes, after that we had a little talk about how saying things like that can hurt someone's feelings) When I was (over)due with Puckey, my then three year old nephew told me I "just need to push that baby right out!" Yeah, kids are hilarious, aren't they?

I wish I had taken note of all the funny cute things my kids have said over the years. I am now, trying to keep a log of them as they make me laugh and smile, sometimes when I just don't feel like it!

I don't have a holder. So far Walker hasn't noticed...but I don't think that day is far off. (Of course, Big Willy has been aware of that for some time, hence, more privacy around him)

Its so fun to really listen to what our kids come up with, and the time is so short.

Thanks for the smiles as I read through your post!

I don't have a holder neither.

No holder here, either....and sure enough, 2 of my 3 have noticed!

Cameron (my 2 year old) likes to poke at my chest and say, "these bubbles mommy?" I just die...

You tell the funniest stories, Julie, keep them coming! :-)
