Making a Good First Impression

No pictures for this one.
You can thank me later.
You will thank me...And uh, proceed at your own risk!

Shane had his first basketball game last week.
There I was, sitting on the bleachers, minding my own business when I noticed a cute, little, dark-haired girl, maybe about 4 years old, staring at me. She watched me for a minute, I smiled, she wandered off.

Pretty soon, she was back. She sat down by her mom in front of me. Next thing I know, she has turned around and slid really close to me. She leans in and in a whispery voice asks me...

"Do you have a baby growing in your tummy?" (Gulp, really? I look pregnant to this little girl? What the heck???)

*I make a mental note to add a girdle body shaper to my shopping list.

Swallowing  hard, I hesitantly answer;


Then, she reaches up, touches"chest" and quickly quips back;

"Then why are your boobs so big?"

I'll wait until you finish laughing.

Good news, I guess I don't look pregnant...?

And now I know what kind of first impression I make on people. I mean, 4 year olds pretty much call it like it is, right?

The little cutie's brother is on Shane's team.
You'll understand what I mean when I say I am not looking forward to attending Shane's games for the next 8 weeks.
I'm just thankful no one else overheard our conversation.
I think I am scarred for life!

By the way~ my answer was;

"I don't know".

I thought it was a pretty good comeback!
This week, I think I'll just send Rick to the game...I'll be busy trying to find a plastic surgeon.


  1. hahahaha! That's awesome!!

    Except -- I don't even think my 10 year old has any idea that boobs get big with pregnancy.. so maybe the mom is giving a little too much information..

  2. Hmmmm! I think this kid just has a boob fetish.

  3. My friend Alexis just got asked if she was pregnant too by a 2nd grader, and she doesn't have big boobs. She agrees that kids are nothing if not honest but holy cow! ha ha. Now I know one of the first things I am going to teach my little girl. NEVER ask anyone if they are pregnant....even if your almost positive they are.

  4. I hope you don't mind that I'm laughing at your expense! What a bold child! Some people would give their eye teeth for bigger boobs!

    How are you going to explain to Shane why you're never at his games? ;0

  5. Oh my gosh thanks for the laugh today!!! Kids really do call it like it is. I wouldn't be too worried - there are plenty of people who pay good money to have those (wink!).

  6. So, what do you think she will say to Rick?

  7. I am so sorry...I am chuckling! Children really do speak their minds.

  8. Oh my heck!!!!! That is hilarious!
    I've never been accused of being endowed but I have been asked when my baby was due.....not preggers!

  9. Oh my goodness! How funny is that? And I'm sure a little embarrassing. I've been asked the same question before, but by my granddaughter!

    I really enjoyed reading your blog. Can't wait to see what's next!
    You have a new follower!

  10. Little stinker !
    I always taught my kids that if someone says something that is rude, that they should reply to that person, " Didn't your mother teach you any manners".
    Worked every time!
    No one wants to have their momma pulled into it ! :)
    And, I agree with Connie!

  11. You never know what a kid is gonna say when they start talking. :)

  12. Bwahahaha! That is the Best. Story. Ever.

    I'm sorry for your emotional scarring, but FANTASTIC blogging material!

    From someone who has ginormous boobs, I truly appreciate this story.

  13. Oh my gosh! I am going to be giggling about this for days. Freaking kids! Well, there are definitely worse things in life than having big boobs...

  14. The other day, I asked a woman a similar question about her boobs on the bus and didn't get as polite a response.

  15. Valerie, I'm sorry I did laugh hard. You defiantly can find the humor in everyday situations! Kids, they are intimidating at times.
