All in a day

"What is a baby shoe doing in the pantry?" -Dad while throwing supper together.

"Where's brudder-fur-now?" -all the girls, about 10 times each. And yes, that is what they call him, like it's his name or something. Poor guy.

"She's bwoken." -Blessing "No, honey, he's a boy, that's why he looks that way." -Mom

"What IS that?" -Grace "I told you, darling, that's his little boy. He's a boy." -Mom

"Is he a boy?" -Charity, who, by the way, is only asking because she senses one more question about his boy parts just might send me over the edge.

"Oh, wow, 5 girls and you finally got your boy?" -Nice lady at Wal-Mart

"No, the baby is a girl, I just got tired of girls so I'm pretending." -me, realizing that maybe she didn't get my sarcasm as her face crumpled all up and she walked away rather frumpy-like. I thought about calling after her that I was only kidding, but I was a little distracted by being run over by a 10 year old pushing a buggy with 2 toddlers in it, while the buggy I was pushing held another toddler who was pestering the already fussing baby, and the 8 year old was rather insistent about getting a present for her teacher. Ah, the good life.

I've been watching a friend's little boy and my DDs are constantly wondering "what is that?"
DD1 (4yo) was asking the other day so I told her, he's a boy, he looks different. Then she stood thinking and said "I am GLAD I'm a girl" and off she ran! No questions since then.
Nice to meet you at Melissa's blog.
