Parenting Fail #572 :: Balls.

The Scene: The Husband, myself and Carter are all standing around in the kitchen. The Husband is leaning back against one of the kitchen counters. Carter is standing in front of him reaching for The Husband's post-work beer. 


Husband: Carter, this isn't for toddlers. Your juice is over there. 


Carter: [THWACK] Nails The Husband in his... junk. 


Husband: Ouch! Carter! Those are Dad's balls! You have to be careful! 


Carter: Dada's balls. Balls. Balls. 




Now, Carter has been putting together two-word sentences for a while now. "Go outside?" "Go Night-Night?" "More, Mama?" 


Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be adding, "Dada's balls" to that list. 


Never a dull moment in this house.

  7. Heeeeheeee! Yeah, we have been saying "Momma's boobies," "Mia's boobies" for quite some time.

    Trying to explain to your child that she can't pinch your nipples is a toughy, so I could only imagine how the "balls" conversation was.

    LOL!

  8. Yea....yea...Totally get this. I taught Eme the word boobies, NOT SO SHE WOULD USE IT, but because she was pointing there thinking the baby existed there, and also, twisted one (or both) of my, ahem, nipples while I was bra-less and I may have cried a little. ANYWAY. Now she goes, "That's MOMMA'S BOOBIES!!!!!!" and points to them. Often. Holy sheet, man. These kids.

  10. I don't even want to start the list of things that L has picked up that we've had to tell him are "bad words" to get him to stop saying them in public. Ahem.

    Yesterday, I had a kindergartner at my therapy table say, "I HAVE BALLS!!!" I just looked at him and he added, "On my chair. Tennis balls on the legs."


    Aaaah. Of course.

  14. hahahaha!!! so apparently the man's obsession with those things start early!

    i told you about bg's current "boobies" phase. This morning I walk in to find her laying down with her hand on her chest going "mommy look!! i got boobies!!". We're going to have to work on her self control...
