A (Slightly) Off-Color, Super Cute Thing my Niece Said

My mom was holding my two-month old nephew. The nephew started to cry. Said my mother, "I would hold him, but he wants to nurse. I can't help him with that."

Says my four-year-old niece, "Because you nursed Tatty, and Mendel, and Sarah, so it would be germs if Moshe nursed from you."

  1. I think the fact that that sounds really sick to me is a bad sign about my mind...!

  4. A few minutes before discussing bube's nursing capabilities, this niece was saying nonsense words to amuse herself, as is her wont. One of the gibberish words she was saying was "plump." I told her that "plump" is a real word, and it means "a little bit fat."

    Says the niece, "Like Mamma is plumb."

    And now I know what she said, when everyone looked at me kind of awkwardly before laughing ;-)

  10. I take protecting people's confidentiality very seriously.

    Did you read through the blog and bump into this post serendipitously, or did you know that I posted about this?
