Out of the Mouths of 8yr Olds

Hey Everyone!

Two posts in two days! Scary, I know. But this one just had to be told. And it's a short one ;-)

This morning, the boys and I were on our way to school. Alec noticed a sign in the back window of the car ahead of us.

'Holy!' he said. 'Triplets!'

'What's a triplet?' asked Adam.

I guess we've never had a 'multiple-birth' conversation.

'It's when you have three kids at the same time.' replied Alec. Then he re-thought that answer. 'Well, not really at the SAME time, they usually come a minute or so after each other. Right Mom?'

I told him that was about right. They will usually be a couple/few minutes apart.

Adam got really quiet. Thinking. All of a sudden, just when I thought the conversation was over and forgotten, he says in all seriousness...

'Wow... she must have a REALLY big Vagina!'

For a split second, I had no reply to that. It was another one of those 'mouthful of coffee - meet my windshield' moments.

Apparently he missed the part of the conversation where we said, 'One at a time!!!'

You're very welcome :-) I'm just happy the whole conversation didn't take place in the lineup at the grocery store!!!! You know, that's where those 'OMIGOD DID MY KID JUST SAY THAT?!?!?' statements take place LOL.

Thanks for the good laugh! How do you keep your composure when your little cutie says such hilarious things?
