Overheard Conversations

Oldest son to Youngest son about a book he read concerning wolves:" Wolves are dogs."

Youngest: "No, they're not."

Oldest: "Yes, they are...right, mom?"

Me, as I am working in the kitchen, only half listening: "Yes, wolves are wild dogs."

Oldest: "Some kids at school do this!" He sticks his hand up his shirt, into his armpit and tries to make noise, laughing the entire time.

Youngest laughs along.

Oldest: "Pit bulls are a kind of dog, but they are also a part of your body."

Youngest: "No, they're not."

Oldest: "Yes, they are...right, mom?"

Me: "Huh? What are you talking about?" I slowly connect the dots between the wolves, dogs, armpit noises, and pit bulls, thinking he is referring to "armpit" but doesn't quite remember the word.

Oldest: "You know..." as he lifts up his shirt and points to his chest," pit bulls...the things that babies drink milk from on their moms."

Me, laughing hysterically:"Oh...you mean NIPPLES!"

They crack me up!
