Bring on the Embarrassment

D: Hello language explosion! It’s finally here…yippee! Everyone said it was right around the corner, but that corner was beginnings to seem pretty far down the road for my boys. Alas, in the last week both boys are repeating just about any thing that comes out of our mouths and forming cute little broken sentences left and right.

Finn walks around the house pointing at everything, and naming it. Which I suppose is what I’ve been doing for the last few months, so it might be a while before he realizes that’s now how we really talk.

They’ve also started pointing at things and asking, “what’s that?” And then it’s our turn to tell them what it is and then they repeat it back to us. Then they repeat that word all day long.

Well, this morning, when they were getting dressed Finn leaned over to Ollie and pointed at his nipple and said “boobie” very clearly and intently.


Although I don’t remember giving him that word, I’m going to give my darling husband the benefit of the doubt and say that it could’ve been either one of us sarcastically naming his nipple ‘boobie’.

Ollie got a kick out of this word uttered by his brother, so he pointed to Finn’s chest and he said “boobie”. They both rolled over with laughter. I admit, it was pretty funny so I started laughing as well. But then they turned it to me… pointing to my chest and chanting “boobie, boobie!”

Uh, oh.

Suddenly I find myself trying to problem solve how to avoid any unnecessary “boobie” chanting in public! Any suggestions?

And if I tell them it’s actually a ‘nipple’, is that really any better?

Oh, thanks for the laugh Dana! Great news on the explosion! We've had a few embarrassing incidents like this too (though nothing as cool as Tracey's!). I've got zero advice for you...maybe just nod and smile? :)
