My Son Thinks I’m a Pedophile

Yesterday afternoon:

Cade is lying on his changing table, and I am changing his diaper. I have a wipe, and am cleaning his, you know, private area. Cade then points to his manhood and says,

Mama, touchin’ my peeps...RIGHT THERE!!

And then, to make his point, he enthusiastically jabbed at his junk.

I laughed, put on his diaper, and he scampered off to play.

5 minutes later

I’m on the sofa, watching TV, and Cade’s playing with his trucks. He seemed to be in his own world, talking to himself, and I love to watch him in those moments when he is in a far off place, as he is just beginning to imagine how very cool and mysterious life can be. But then he started to say, just as he had a few minutes prior, Mama’s touchin’ my peeps, Mama’s touchin’ my peeps, Mama touchin’ my peeps!

EEEEEAAAAAAAAASY, Kid.

I hope a case worker from DCFS doesn’t overhear him, or I may go to jail.

Holy COW. That's the funniest thing ever, Brie. As long as he doesn't start announcing it in the grocery store! LOL

I just put in a call to social services, you sick, sick woman.

LOL! Cute story...he'll enjoy hearing this one on, oh, let's say... his first date!

If it makes you feel better, after a difficult battle with head lice and then a freak accident of falling off of the couch while napping, Annie told a woman at the party story, "I have bugs. And I broke my collar bone."
Thank GOD she didn't mention the pin worms!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, do you have a Hobo on Facebook?

CookieGirl said...

aaa! I am peeing my pants reading this. Can't wait until I can have kids. xoxo

Tiptoe said...

This is one of those moments when you remember that kids can say the darnest things!

brie said...

Yeah, the whole thing is pretty hysterical. He's just learning that private parts are really cool and are fun to touch. He thankfully hasn't begun sticking his hand down is pants in public or anything, but he does explore it when he's in the bath or when I'm changing his diaper. I have a "peeps" too, and I've decided it's probably time to not let him see me nakey anymore! Gah!

brie said...

Oh and Single, I totally know what a hobo is, but I have NO IDEA what a hobo is on Facebook. Elaborate, please.

So glad there's no photo accompanying this blog post. :)

Shannon said...

Oh my goodness. I know. I hated it when Weston was aware enough to know that I was touching him. So awkward. Oh well, what are you gonna do? So, ya, Weston is going to be 3 in January, so he's . . .32 months? I don't know exactly. I actually was worried that I was pushing potty training too soon, but he was pretty ready. I think the hardest thing now is that I have to stay home ALL day and I'm going nuts.

Single said...

Oh someone on Facebook has a hobo called Brie Cheese on Hobowars. But I guess it's not you. I saw it last night and laughed.

brie said...

Oh, okay Single, that makes a bit more sense (sort of) but though I have a facebook profile, I'm hideously horrible at regularly checking it, so I don't forsee any "hobo wars" (or whatever) for me in the future...

Love your comments. Reminds me of life before kids grow up and i get old. Hey, I will ask, what is an "emo band" Breathelessly waiting,
