So we took the girls to the park for our nightly let’s see if we can get mom to break her belly exercise. I was on the swings with Briar and a boy, maybe about seven, pedaled his bike over to us.
“I thought I was the only one here,” he said looking up at the sky.
Briar began to preen and blush on her swing, “What’s that kid doing?”
“He’s riding his bike,” I told her with a smile, feeling mostly charmed by the playground flirtation.
He rolled back and forth on his bike for a minute, never looking at us and then saying, “You are pregnant. You are going to have a baby.”
I looked at him smiling, “Yes, I am.”
Briar watched him from her swing and he continued sitting on his bike not looking at us, then he cleared his throat and looked at me. I smiled.
“When you have that baby it is going to be painful,” he said this in almost hushed tones and looked at me with heavy eyes.
I nodded and smiled, “But it is so worth it.”
The look he gave me as he pedaled away made it clear that he thought I had the sense of a shit house rat.
LOL your last sentence…
Lol! So what does HE know? He's lucky his mom had that much sense!
Oh my God that is hysterical!
LOL, ok that was hilarious. Although I bet that is the same look I gave the nurse right after I had Madeline and she mentioned having a second child to me.
What is it about kids that makes them want to constantly state the obvious!?
ok. he's a boy. man in training. he focused on the pain. figures. that's why we have the babies.
where is little, "f?" C'mon kid! Mommy wants to meet you and so does the rest of the blogging world!!!! Can't wait. Seriously, I'm like some kind of religious fanatic checking your website everyday to see if you've gone into labor. In a non-stalker kind of way of course. 🙂
Have Sean rub your heels and ankles. And good luck!
as i type this, fingers are crossed that you are in the middle of that so worth it pain!!
Poor boy, worrying about the lady in the park who was unwittingly heading into childbirth….
Wow, what an enlightened kid. Although his timing could have been better.
He'll never know!!
children are very, very wise, you know.
and i thought my husband was the ONLY person that uses the term shit house rat!LOL
Okay, he has Asperger's for sure. I remember when I told my fourth grade class that I was going to have a baby. One of the little rats tapped another little male rat and whispered, "that means she did it."
When is she getting here, already?
Now, that was priceless!
I went away for a week and thought I'd return to wonderful and amazing news! Aww, the little girl wants a few more moments of just you and her! Hang in there!
Honesty, thy name is 7-year-old boy.
