Art Linkletter was right

Kids DO indeed say the darndest things.

My mom wanted Dinks to meet my Aunt Enid's one daughter-in-law, MaryHelen. Now, I have already warned you before this that my mom looks like Doris Day and was raised in the 40's and 50's. My mom is the epitome of grace and manners. How I came out of that mix is still one of mankind's modern mysteries. Anyhow, mom brings the Dinks over to MaryHelen.

Mom: "MaryHelen, I heard you wanted to meet the star of the family."

MH: "Why yes! I am very pleased to meet you, Dinker!"

MaryHelen puts her hand out for a handshake. On cue, Dinks lifts up her shirt and points to her chest.

Dinks: "I have nipples!"

Now, I was not there to witness this incident. I got all information secondhand from various sources. MaryHelen was laughing hysterically relaying the moment. Brian, her husband, my aunt's son, chuckled insanely. "Of all the people in the world, it had to happen to your mom." Indeed, it did. And my mom laughed at the whole thing but had to throw in, "I thought I was going to die."

Maybe next time I'll dress Dinks in a bodysuit to avoid such episodes. But then again, what fun would THAT be?

HA! That's priceless!

Of course, the Carpet Shark will now inform anyone who cares to listen about his "Peepee!"

While tugging it enthusiastically.

When you've got little ones around you have to be ready for just about anything.

My friend's 5 year old loves birds and can identify many of them. Last week, he told his dad that in the same tree he saw 2 doves and a mouse's tit.
