Sunday Funnies: The Secret Box

"Mommy, what's in that pink stripped box in the top of your closet that says Victoria Secret?"  I was a little speechless when I heard these words come out of my seven year old daughter's mouth.

"Um, why?" I asked.

"Well, it fell on the floor and there are some weird squishy things in them."

"Well honey, they're fake boobs."  I replied hesitantly.

"Why do you have fake boobs?"
Why am I having to have this conversation right now, she's only seven she doesn't even have boobs of her own yet!

"Well, when mommy got married I had to wear them so that my wedding dress wouldn't fall down."  I felt I had to be honest.

"Well how do you wear them?"

"Uh, you just put them in your bra."  I said as quickly as I could

With that uncomfortable conversation out of the way I thought the topic was closed.  So I went to get EM who was downstairs for this entire exchange (thank goodness) to get her dressed for the night.

About ten minutes later as I was putting them to bed and I was sitting on EM's bed.  She started patting my bulkier than usual sweatshirt. 

"What are you doing?"  I asked her.

"Where are your boobs mommy, I can't see them."

"Apparently they're in the box on the floor of my closet EM."

Sunday Funnies is a weekly theme here at Cake Crumbs. If you would like to play along just think back through your week and find the funniest thing that happened to you and jot it down. You can leave your story in the comments box if you would like. Or if you decide to do a post on your own site just mention it in your comment and I'll be sure to come check it out!

Oh children. Aren't they a blessing? I have a Sunday funnies for next week. I'd saved the post, but didn't know you had this theme. I'll have to link up next week with something my toddler did to me a couple of weeks ago.

How can they be so observant of the things we don't want them to know, and so oblivious to everything else?

After my youngest was born, her older brother (four at the time), became fascinated by the idea that his mommy had milk in her breasts. For a while, his opening line with every woman he met was: "What's in your boobs?"

Still laughing...

LOL that's too funny!! Once when I was about 12 I asked my mom what "ejaculate" meant... yeah, it's also "to utter suddenly and briefly; exclaim." But my mom gave me this look and I was like "Um, never mind!"

Thanks by the way for answering my survey a few weeks ago. I really appreciate it!!
