Things Overheard at the Grocery Store

Caroline and I made our family's run to the grocery store on this wet afternoon to stock up for the next few weeks. (It had been 3 weeks!! - but with a Food Lion emergency stop at one point.) The store was pretty crowded given the fact it was a Sunday afternoon and it was raining but Caroline happily sat in the front of the cart, right at my level. In true Caroline fashion, she just talked a blue streak as we made our way through the store and was asking about everything that went through her little head.

In line at the deli, I told her, "We're here to get daddy some lunchmeat for his lunches." And to that she replies, "Yeah, Daddy's got a big penis." I almost laughed out loud. I looked around and no one was standing really closely and she only said it in her normal term of voice. I shushed her and told her that was private, so then she proceeded to tell me everything in a whisper. The funny thing about this was that we hadn't even had any genital conversations recently, so I have no idea what brought that remark up. Unless it was standing near the deli case next to all those big sausages and stuff.....but I digress.

Then later on, as I was pushing the cart, she bumps her head against my chest and says, "I want to eat your boob!" I laughed since she's had a sudden fascination with my nursing of Bryce again.

I guess you can file all of this under the "Kids say the darndest things" category. I always wondered when that kind of stuff would start happening, but I guess I don't have to wonder anymore.

LOL! That Caroline! Good thing no one overheard....although if they had it would have been even funnier.
