“Why isn’t the baby coming?” they ask.
“He’s staying here with Grandma while we go to the pool party” I reply.
“He’s getting a bottle while we’re gone,” the know-it-all 5-year-old says to her brother “because Grandma can’t feed him with her boobs.”
“Excuse me?!” I returned, trying to reinforce the more child-friendly, albeit probably unnecessarily puritanical verbiage. “With her CHEST.”
The 3-year-old followed that one up with “Grandma has boobs on her chest.”
There’s one more line item on the list of childhood innocence to scratch off.
