You Love Who?

May 20, 2009 by Michelle

And another installment of from the mouths of babes. Setting the scene: Little Miss is eating her dinner of soy milk pancakes (a Monday night tradition since Mommy gets home from work late and Daddy cooks the only thing Daddy knows how!). She peeks up at me through coy, lash hidden eyes.

Little Miss: Mommy, I like you!
Me: Guess what? I love you!
Little Miss: I love you, too!
Mister Man: I love her the mostest.
Me: Oh, you do, do you? Little Miss, who do you love the most?
Little Miss: I love you the most, Mommy!
Me: Awww, you’re such a sweet girl. Mister Man, who do you love the most?
Mister Man: I love Little Miss the most. I already said that.
Me: Well, what about the woman who gave birth to you?
Mister Man: Oh, Grandma? I suppose I love her the most, too.

Ummm. I think I need to have a little chat with Mister Man about how the world really works. I’m not quite up for the birds and the bees, but we may be starting to get a little close!

    Love this, Michelle! In my house, Grandma gets the credit for everything:) Looks like Grandma is high on the pedestal at your house too!

  • H F W

    hahahahaha! Grandma gets credit for everything ’round this joint, too. Good thing they are splendid people or else I’d be jealous.

    And don’t you just adore anatomy and sex chats with your preschoolers??

  • Sherry

    LOL that is so darn cute!

  • morninglight mama

    HA! A little lesson is in order, huh? 🙂

  • Melisa with one S

    HAHAHAHA! I’m glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that, because it would have come out all over the keyboard.

    You’d better start getting ready for the first of many “talks”: Bwahaha!

  • Mocha Dad

    maybe it is time to have that talk.

  • Michelle

    Septembermom – Yeah… she’s pretty high up there. Little Miss woke up crying hysterically this morning for Grandma. For not apparent reason. Except that she was hungry.

    Hyacynth – Yeah, splendid people definitely help 🙂 And this is SO not the first chat like this that we’ve had.

    Sherry – Glad I’m not the only one who thought so!

    morninglight mama – Perhaps. Emphasis on LITTLE!

    Melisa – And here I was hoping I’d get someone to spew. Darn. Good to know you’re empathetic for when I get to that point.

    Mocha Dad – *sigh* I’m so not ready. I figure I’ve at least another three or four years. Right? Please?

  • Cookie

    My kids starting asking about mammals and how they give birth. They couldn’t believe that moms actually have tiny eggs inside their bodies. Then they asked about how the egg becomes a baby and it was time to change the subject!

  • Irene

    That is hilarious!!! Is he referring to your mom? If so, he is indirectly correct…she is the person who gave birth to the person who gave birth to him. Right?

  • Michelle

    Cookie – Hey, at least you’re telling him the truth. But yeah… I’m not ready for those conversations yet either!

    Irene – Isn’t it? And yes, he’s referring to my mom, so I suppose that relatively (pun intended) he’s sorta correct.
