The Nipple Talk
Photo Credit: -bast-
As Drew gets older I have noticed that he is getting more and more inquisitive. The unfortunate outcome to this inquisitiveness is that he asks a lot of strange questions about things for which I don't have answers. I was putting lotion on Drew after his bath when we had this kind of conversation. The conversation for which you can never really prepare. The nipple talk.
"Mommy, what will happen if you put lotion on these?" He asked, pointing to his nipples.
"Nothing, honey. It's like your skin."
"What are they?"
"What are they for?"
I thought for a moment. "Boys don't use their nipples for anything." Please don't ask me what girls use them for... I chanted silently in my head.
"What?!?" Drew exclaimed in his cute incredulous tone. "Why?"
"I don't know."
"We have to use them for something."
"Umm...." I thought. Seriously, what do men use their nipples for? I remember I had a trivia book with this name- God forbid I actually remember anything from it? "They are used to make sure you know which side is your front and which side is your back."
"Oh." Drew was deep in thought for a minute, then he looked up at me. "Okay!"
A little fabrication doesn't hurt now and then right? Mother of the year is right here!
Woot to Michigan State for making it the Final Four! They played their hearts out on Sunday. I couldn't be prouder to be a fan. If you have read this post, you will really know how excited I am!
