I must keep in mind that he's only 18-months.

The other morning I got out of the shower, grabbed a pair of underwear to throw on and made my way to Jackson's room because he was shouting obscenities in retaliation to the fact that I'd ignored him while I was doing my daily cleansing ritual. The nerve of me.

As I walked in, he looked at my bare stomach, got a big grin and said BELLY! Yes, sweet boy, that's my belly, I said. I neglected to point out each individual stretch mark that he inflicted on me, but I haven't forgotten and intend to hold that over his head for a very long time.

Then he looked a few inches upward at my bare breasts, smiled, and said BA-LLOON!

I only hope he meant an inflated balloon.

LOL! That is so funny! My daughter still pulls my shirt down and says 'Let me see your boobies!' She got that from me, since I do it to her, but jeez, not so appropriate, huh? Bad mom, bad mom.

Ha! That's funny. Now you need to teach him the other names, like bazongas, melons, and dirty pillows.
