Funny Things Heard While Pregnant #8

I am learning that sometimes people just don’t know what to say, or can’t help themselves from saying what they want to say… Thus continues a compendium of the funny/odd/weird/tasteless/forthright things people have said to me whilst in “the family way”.

Number 8:
My Sweet Niece just turned 4. she is trying to understand why all the grown-ups keep talking about this baby that she has still seen no proof of arrival. The concept of time is a touchy thing for kids, and Sweet Niece is quite bright – so i am sure she “Gets” it… just doesn’t understand all the waiting….

Her mom, however, my FAB Sister-In-Law, has been jumping for joy since the moment of our announcement back in October. She keeps exclaiming how excited she is to be an Aunt. Finally, an Aunt! I am pumped for her- she’s the best!!!

Apparently though, Sweet Niece decided it was all too much, one day, and asked her mom to sit down for a chat.

She said, “Mom, I’m not so sure I want KT to have a baby.”

SIL said, “Well, why not? it’s going to be pretty fun, and you will have a cousin!”

Sweet Niece then said, “Yeah, but when she has the baby, and you become an Aunt, you won’t by my Mommy anymore, and I don’t want you to stop being my Mommy!”

SIL then calmly informed her that would never happen, and being an Aunt is an added bonus…

how sweet is that?

  1. So sweet! Kids say the funniest things (sometimes quite insightful things!). It’s fun to see how their minds work….

    Yay for you and your fab sister-in-law who will surely be a great aunt! 🙂 Family is the best!
