A Breast Man Is Born... 6/7/2008

Coaching on Ryan's swim team last summer was so much fun...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You'd think, after living with a bright and extremely articulate child for nearly 9 years, I'd be used to hearing unusual and unexpected thoughts escape from the mouths of little people. But every now and then, I'm thrown. Last night was one of those every now and thens...

I've thoroughly enjoyed coaching the littlest kids on Ryan's swim team so far... I work with between 3 and 7 kids on any given night and they range in age from 4 to 6. They're all really adorable and because I've always been good with kids in that age group, they like me and are all getting quite attached (which I don't mind in the least). I try to make practices/lessons a lot of fun and give them all loads of encouragement and praise, which isn't difficult, as they try really hard to do their best for me.

One of my little guys, an especially cute and charming 5-year-old, doggie paddled out to me last night and when I picked him up to congratulate him for not touching the bottom of the pool, he looked at me through his bright orange goggles and said, "Your boobies are bigger than my mommy's." Well now. I didn't expect that. So I replied, "Thank you for that little bit of information," and I sent him back to the wall, where his little cronies were waiting for their turns to paddle out to me. When he reached the wall, he repeated his revelation to his 4-year-old partner in crime. And his (rather loud) reply? "Yeah, your boobies are bigger than my mommy's, too." Oh my. Our third little perv piped in (again, loudly) with, "Well, they're not bigger than MY mommy's! My mommy's boobies are HUGE!"

Monday night I'm wearing a t-shirt in the water.

Hilarious.

My wife works with children (or at least did until our little one arrived) and one nursery she managed was in, how shall I put it, a bit of a "yummy mummy" spot.

In short, all the mummies had boob jobs.

Thing is, nursery children like boobs, instinctively they notice them, watch them, pine after the milk.

One day a mummy with particularly huge boobs and a particularly low cut top came in.

My wife watched as a mass of small toddlers followed her with there eyes in one mass collective pining.

Genius.

This story makes me chuckle and mutter boobies under my breath just like it did the first time I read it.

Michelle said...

Such a funny story. m.stoneskin's comment cracked me up, too, with the "mass collective pining..."

Males seem to be particularly blessed with the boob-awareness gene. ;)

Maybe you should just line up all these mothers and see who has the biggest boobs. You know, just to satisfy those intriguing minds! LOL
