Now Slimmer For Your Comfort

Pie: (joyfully) I found it! It's a wonderful diaper!

(Thump, thump, thump as she runs down the hall to show me.)

I want to put on this wonderful diaper!

OH MY GOODNESS!

That is hysterical. Thanks for the funny on this Sunday morning.

You just know this day is coming... it's all a matter of when, isn't it?

Laughing my butt off!

Suki said...

hee hee hee hee hee!

Lovely new diaper for Pie! :P .

Question - how did you explain stuff to her?

bubandpie said...

Suki - No real explanations this time - but the other day, she caught me peeing on the potty at a certain time of the month. She was staring in horror, so I said, "This is called a period! When you grow up to be a lady, you will have this too!"

Brow furrowed, she fingered the Band-Aid on her knee meditatively and (perhaps recalling the free-flowing blood from an especially bad scrape) said, "I hurt me knee!"

She may be traumatized for life - so I'm glad she has such a positive attitude towards feminine protection products.

So funny.

My son is partial to tampons ... once slept with one and brought it to preschool without me knowing!

Aliki2006 said...

Ack!!! Tessa has frequently seen me use "those things" and asks questions about them (I seldom get ANY privacy in the bathroom). I muddled through an explanation much like yours...

Jenifer said...

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

OMG that is SO funny!

Wonderful..... heh.

Julie Pippert said...

LMAO!!!!!

Can I say...they have those inserts for potty training. Can I say...I got some. Can I say...maxi pads would have been better. LOL

Oh the absolute joy of explaining periods to 2 and 5 year old witnesses.

LOL

Guffaw!
My Baby very carefully peeled the backs off a whole box of those "diapers" and stuck them all to the bathroom wall. V. decorative.

Aimee said...

So much more than hilarious . . . I love it! It's just like the time I was in the shower and Older Girl (2 at the time) took all the pads out of their wrappers and stuck them all over the bathroom. I got out of the shower and she proudly proclaimed: "Stickers!"

I always knew I needed a padded room . . .

Lawyer Mama said...

Fabulous!

My son loves my tampons. He steals them and launches them like rockets around the house. Good times.

kgirl said...

wonderful indeed! next she'll be offering you a pull-up ;)

Blog Antagonist said...

Snort. Well, at least she won't balk at wearing one later in life.

Sometimes...I'm really grateful I have boys!

Magpie said...

LOL - that made my day!

flutter said...

oh that IS a wonderful diaper! How funny

Carrie said...

My brother once covered himself in them (like armor...or shin pads...or something) and walked into the living room when we had company over. :-)

Kit said...

Very funny. Mine have done the tampon mice thing too. Youngest is convinced that tampons are called periods now, after all my careful explanations.

Naomi (Urban Mummy) said...

Very funny!!!

I have boys. I think I'm glad.

Omaha Mama said...

Hee Hee. The visual image makes me giggle. I was thinking - but what would it hook to?

Wonderful.

ewe are here said...

Oh dear.... :-)

Luisa Perkins said...

That is so very excellent. Laughing hard; sure and I'll be giggling over it for days to come.

mamatulip said...

LMAO!!!

Oliver calls them "Mummy's Band-Aids."

painted maypole said...

Wonderful!

Oh, The Joys said...

Who will put on this wonderful diaper...

I'm channeling the musical Oliver somehow.

Emmie (Better Make It A Double) said...

And what,exactly, would be wrong with a Pull-up? At least it would stay put, and it'd be a lot less bulky, probably. And no more wings that get stuck all funny before they get properly united. I hate wings. I wish I were an inventor. Thanks for the laugh.

nonlineargirl said...

I'm sure that pad looks a sight better than a bulky diaper.

In related thoughts, I am hiding tampons from my daughter (since she's often with me in the bathroom) since I am not ready to talk about why momma puts that inside her, but she should not stick things into her vagina.

Jenifer said...

That is so funny. Both my girls have come up with many potential uses for my diapers and it always makes me laugh. They will have time enough for that later.

The red pee thing...that is so hard to explain and I hope not too terrifying since I never let either girl use the bathroom alone when we are out so they are frequently with me.

Catherine said...

Augh.

Ok, funny story. When I was about 13, and just beginning this fun adventure, and still extremely uncomfortable about it...my brother say a package of "feminine hygene products" in my closet and loudly asked the whole family why I was wearing diapers.

"Humiliation galore."

mamakie said...

Hilarious. How quickly we are thrown into these uncomfortable moments of explanation. My son helps me get my panty liners out of my cupboard.

Here you go, mama - he says.

Luckily I haven't had to go into the full explanation yet. But this has provided some great suggestions.

V-Grrrl said...

My son peeled the backs off, attached them to his feet, and declared them to be insoles.

Christina said...

I can't blame her. If given the choice of that or a bulky diaper, I'd pick that, too.

Mimi said...

soon enough, young pie, soon enough ...

thirtysomething said...

LAUGHING OUT LOUD!
Oh, how amusing, and little does sweet Pie know, that someday...

AnneK said...

ROFLOL

kittenpie said...

They do feel like that, don't they?

Kyla said...

So funny.

She says "wonderful"? I am SO impressed.

bubandpie said...

Kyla - I was too. It's a new word. She used it again today while she was playing with Play-Doh. When her creation was complete, she held it up and said, "It's wonderful."

Mommy off the Record said...

So funny! She will think it's hilarious when you tell this story to her years from now.

Patois said...

It brings to mind the horror I now feel whenever I recall playing with my mom's "curlers" that she had discarded in the trash can. Yep. That would be Tampax cardboard applicators. At least Pie wasn't playing with a used one!

lildb said...

I'd say it's too early for the period discussion, but she *does* seem a little precocious, G.

Her Bad Mother said...

Wonderbaby just grabs a few and announces *STICKIES* and proceeds to decorate her stroller with them. Which, NICE.

PeanutButtersMum said...

LOL! LOL! If only it truly was such a wonderful experience, huh?
