No end to the stories...

I have at least five hilarious stories, courtesy of a certain three year old...

However, they may be controversial in that they have to do with...ahem, nipples. But in a totally (nursing) family friendly way.

So if you want to hear them, read on.

1 - Around the beginning of the year Tessa started checking periodically to see if her little niplets were "still there". Then, while we were visiting Auntie Laura she started asking me who all had nipples. Daddy? Meg? Quincy? She? (this refers to Auntie Laura and Uncle Connel, whom Tessa called "she" and "he" until the last day we were visiting when she started calling them "the other daddy" and "the other mommy") I giggled at this last question and told her she should ask Auntie...

Later that morning at breakfast Tessa started asking again. "Do I have them?" Yes. "Mommy, do you have them?" This line of questioning sent Uncle Connel scurrying into the other room in a hurry. Yes, I responded. Then Tessa turned the tables on my little game by asking excitedly "Lets SEE!" At which point Connel passed out.

2 - Not only is Tessa interested in nipples, so is Meggie. The girls where in the bathtub and Meg giggled and grabbed for Tessa's chest. She kept pinching and pinching and Tessa giggled and tried to squirm away. Finally, she really protested, with very clear logic. "Meg, STOP. You has yours own!" (An argument many of us could use at one point or another)

3 - Now a days Tessa covers her little chest every time we change her shirt and squeals. "Hurry, these are going to get cold!" (Which she has pointed out would make it hard to feed her baby.)

4 - And the other day I gave Aaron a hair cut. He sat in the kitchen bare chested, with a towel and a plastic drape on. It was chilly in the house. After I finished giving him one of the best hair cuts ever (hair cuts by wives are always amazing...right?) he was brushing the hair off and cleaning up. Tessa was very concerned. "Daddy, are those gonna get cold?" "You better cover them!"

5 - I'm sure there are more to come. And if you are really upset that I exaggerated and only have 4 stories you can see a 5th story here...
