I'm a Mommy!

Nicole came to me last night and said, "I'm a mommy."

Me: "Oh yeah? You're a mommy?"

Nicole: "Yup. Where are my brets?"

Me: "Where are your whats? Your barrets?"

Nicole: "No, my brests? I forgot them."

Me: "Your wrists? Your breath?"

Nicole (getting upset): "No, my brests!"

Me (still not getting it): "Okay, I don't know where they are, where are they?"

Nicole: "Upstairs in your closet."

Me: "Okay, lets go and find them."

(upstairs in my closet)

Me: "Okay, where are they?"

Nicole (pointing to one of my shirts): "Right there, my brests. I'm a mommy."

Finally, I realize that she has been saying "breasts" this whole time and she thinks that being a mommy means having breasts and that breasts are in my shirt. So, if she puts on my shirt, she will have breasts.

Me: "Oh, sweetheart, you're a little girl, you don't have breasts yet."

Nicole bursts into tears.

Nicole: "I need my brests!"

Me: "Nicoley, you are just a little girl, but someday you will have breasts and someday you will be a mommy."

This did not seem to console her. So, I held her and sang songs to her while she cried about not having breasts.

Oh Nicole....such a funny girl. I bet there are some adult women that cry about not having breasts yet too.

That is the funniest story I think I have heard about Nicole! Thanks for posting!

Ha ha. They're pretty cumbersome, I don't think having them as a little girl would be any fun at all. Have patience, Nicoley.

Awesome. :)

That is a classic! You'll have to remind her of that when she is a teenager.

My kids used to think mine were in my bras. My oldest saw my husband folding laundry when she was 3 and he was holding a bra and she screamed "NO Daddy, that's Mommy's boobies!"
