Tobin's Take on the Baby
Tobin, our resident comedian, has had some funny things to say about Kenna. Of course, he doesn't realize how funny they are, but leave it to Tobin to be the one to say things like...
"Mommy, I really wanted to see the baby pop out of your tummy." (He was genuinely disappointed that he wasn't in on the action at the hospital!)
While stroking Kenna's hands and feet: "I didn't realize that babies had such soft fur."
While watching a movie and getting slightly disgruntled that he couldn't hear because of Kenna's crying: "Awww...maybe you should take her into another room."
When first watching me burp Kenna (said with a certain amount of alarm): "Mama, why are you hitting her?!"
When first watching me nurse Kenna: "What are THOSE?!"
Upon hearing that "those" are how Kenna gets her milk: "Where are the holes?"
"Did you have those things before Kenna was born?"
("Those things" are now the typical way he refers to my boobs--I decided it was better to have him say "those things" than to hear my almost 5-year-old boy talk about my "breasts" or my "boobs.")
"Those things are silly!"
"Will Charis have those things when she grows up?"
"Will I have them?"
