An Audrey funny

I had a VERY funny interchange with Audrey yesterday ...

We were sitting next to each other on the couch, and Audrey said "Mommy, open your mouth REALLY big."

So I obliged.

Then she said "Stick out your tongue too."

Again, I cooperated with this, although I was not sure where it was going. I was afraid she was going to comment on my crooked teeth or coffee breath.

Then Audrey looks intently into my mouth and says "Mommy, I can see your uterus!"

I burst out laughing, trying not make her embarrassed (although literally I couldn't stop laughing for a minute or so) and wondered WHAT she was talking about. (Also wondering how she knew the word uterus ... perhaps I mentioned it while talking about the new baby? That or I need to stop watching Baby Story in her presence!)

Anyhow, after a moment I remembered a conversation we had the other week in which Audrey asked me what that "hangy" thing in the back of your mouth is called ...

So I said "Audrey, I think you mean that you see my UVULA, not my uterus!"

If she could see my uterus from there, I would sure be in trouble!! :)

Kids are so funny. I figured what she was trying to say! Chantel says Raccoon, for pinecone sometimes and it used to be fur on a stick, before she knew the name of cotton candy! :-)
Also, not knowing the name of what people in Bible times wore on their heads in some pictures, She said, "Jesus is wearing a hoodie," the other day.

She is a piece of work, that Audrey. Keeps us all laughing, that is for sure.

Try asking her if you're having a boy or a girl. Who knows! :)

What a funny story. Love it. We have to figure out how to preserve these blog entries so that we can keep stories like this forever!
