This morning, in the pool:
Monkey: I can do an underwater somersault! Look!
*does a somersault*
Monkey: Did you see it? Did you??
Me: I saw! That was great.
Monkey: I can do a double! WATCH!
*does a double*
Monkey: See that?
Chickadee: Yeah, well, SO WHAT. I can do a TRIPLE somersault!
Me: I saw you, buddy, that was really neat.
Monkey: Yeah, well, I can do a QUADRUPLE somersault!
Chickadee: Yeah, well, I can do a QUINTUPLE somersault!
Me: Oh YEAH? Well I can do a million somersaults in a row!
Otto: Oh YEAH? Well I can—
Chickadee: YEAH, WELL, I HAVE A THIRD NIPPLE!
Ummm . . does she?
And Otto should just do some reflecting on his youth – he had siblings, he ought to remember!
Brigitte beat me to it. So….?
She went right for it, didn’t she? That Chickie is a force to be reckoned with. Love it.
Tell Chickadee I have a third nipple, too, and it never got me anything good so stop bragging. You would think extra chocolate or perhaps the odd foot massage would be in order but, alas, no.
Did you by any chance get her from the circus?
More is better. Clearly no matter what.
HA HA that little Chickadee. She is so clever. Come on, what can top a 3rd nipple? LOL Love her!
So, GetSheila, has it been problematic at all? My ex-husband had three nipples and I remember the doctor telling us that it was never a problem for men but for women–well, he thought I should divorce my husband and not procreate with him. (Okay, so maybe I added that last part.)–Barb
Hmmmm if she volunteers that kind of information that quickly & easily Mom, you might seriously want to consider chaperoning her on her Prom nights.
Not really related to this post, but I have spent the last weeks reading your whole blog, from the very beginning.
Thank you for making my days on bedrest more fun :)
Im hoping I too soon will have funny things to write about my son.
Having a third nipple is much better than a third cheek, chin, or knee cap.
I thought everybody had four cheeks…
Kids will say the most unexpected things, even if they are true just to be “the best”…you can only laugh at things like that.
Yup…. she wins!
Long time lurker, first time commenter. Had to comment just to say: HA! That made my day.
I’m thinking of the wonderful day in the future where Chickie is checking out her mom’s blog. She comes across this and her head implodes when she reads it! :)
That is one awesome girl you have there!
Hey! I have a third nipple too! I win, I win!
HA! Chickadee *slays* me!
Betcha can’t WAIT to see what kind of Google searches lead people to your blog via that!
poor Otto, just wait till she’s a teenager, he doesn’t stand a chance.
Ha ha ha ha! Now you can name her Anne Boleyn.
