At the swings today: how we laughed

For the first time in several weeks we had a chance to spend a little bit of time with the hubster’s 9 year old daughter this afternoon. Of course JJ was thrilled – he loves her to bits although, like all siblings, they generally end up fighting like cats and dogs.

Today they were treated to lunch out at one of the hubster’s favourite lunch spots – Morrisons!! As I was at home whilst EJ napped I can’t comment on that. However when they returned we all decided to go out en masse down to our local recreation ground  for swings and ice cream.

Once we had our 99s we decamped to the littlies playzone and hubster was tasked with pushing both boys on the swings whilst myself and No.1. stepdaughter sat down next to another woman on a park bench to finish off our ice creams.

We had missed our chance of seeing her the previous weekend because she had been off camping with friends so I asked her where she’d been and if she’d had a nice time. After the briefest of answers she turned to me and said “I can’t believe you’ve had two boys inside you” motioning to her brothers, and then really loudly “you’ve had two willies inside you!!!”.

This immediately reminded me of my Mum’s story about how she tried to explain the birds and bees to my sister when she was about 2 and I was a new born baby. The following day, on a bus of all places, in her confusion she loudly announced that her daddy had two penises. I’m sure my Mum must have wished at the time, as I did briefly today, that the ground would swallow her up.

Kids – gotta love ’em!

  1. I don’t know what’s worse being accused of harbouring male genitalia, cutely known as willies, in your body or being accused of being married to a deformed man who has 2, not so cutely named, Penises, loudly on a bus. Those girls! I hope they get their comeuppance. I haven’t had an embarrassing incident such as these. Perhaps my nephews will provide me with one!
