And the dirty talk just keeps on coming!!


So, I have to backtrack before I tell the story I came here to share. Sorry, Gina. You know I love you, but this was just too funny to keep to myself.


Some time back, Addison was doing what two year olds do when they are naked: getting familiar with their "region." She kept shouting "my butt, my butt!!" then she would giggle and run. When I finally tackled her, I, in a very mommy way, explained that that isn't her butt; that is her vagina. (sorry boys. No one really likes to say that word lol) She said "oh, sorry (giggle giggle) Gina." Gina-as in my friend's name. I didn't bother to correct her.


Fast forward to a couple days later at the dentist's office where my friend, Gina, is our Dental Hygienist. Addison, who we all know as uncooperative, was more than willing to do whatever Ms. Gina told her...only she couldn't seem to remember her name was Gina (Geena) and not G-eye-nah! Sigh. I was cracking right up, but poor Gina. I explained what was happening, but every time Addison had to talk to her, she insisted on using her "name."


Gina: did she just say it again?

me: cracking up!! YES!!


Again, fast forward to two days ago. I was changing Sam's diaper and Addison suddenly became nosey. She said "oh, Sam's Gina." I told her Sam doesn't have a Gina, lol. stop saying that. "she said, "oh-sorry. His genius." I lost it. She didn't get what I meant when I said "I am sure he would like to think that is his *genius!!" LOL

This is classic. Possibly funnier than Louie's ultra clean arse incident.

I don't know, Jay. Mike and I were cracking for a long time at that one.

good thing gina has lots o' experience with the wee ones. too funny. i don't think she was too traumatized by her name being changed she didn't mention it.

see, your stories really make you innocent in some way. there is no explanation for why dylan was telling layla to bite his shiny metal ass yesterday other than i am a horrible parent that watched futurama with him

themoses said...

why didn't you use some obscure names like hoo-hoo or ninny?

digapigmy said...

don't you watch scrubs, moses? you can't do that because then she'll grow up to be a doctor that can't say "vagina" to a patient. do you really want that on your head?

shontell said...

LOL I love scrubs. My children are innocent. Until they open their mouths, and then it is really up in the air. Anything can happen!
When I was in high school my friends little cousin used to call her part a "poony." (Like pony with an oo sound as in moon.) Anyway, we used to prank call people and tell them we would give them $100 if they could tell me what a poony is. Noone could, but you may have been amazed at how many people took this game seriously LOL

i'm not sure what a poony is, but i could sure guess.
