Kids Say The Darndest Things

Kid FunnyYesterday as I was changing my middle child Aidan walked into the room.  I had just gotten out of the shower and was putting on my bra.   He happened to walk in right as I was getting it on and he goes “Ninny’s” .

Let me back peddle a bit. When he and his sister were both nursing that is what the nickname for my boobs became LOL.  Kinda like a pacifier is called a binky or fofee. My kids nicknamed the girls “Ninny’s” when they were old enough to talk and were nursing.  I nursed them all until they were right around 2 (give or take a few months).

Okay now back to the current day.  As mentioned he pointed and said “Ninny’s” and I respond with “Yes”.  At that moment I could see the little wheels in his brain turning and I could only imagine what in the world was going to come out next.  That’s when he said

“And we can eat from them?”

Me: Pause…wondering if I heard him right “What did you say”

Him: “We can eat from them?” said in a matter of fact tone.

Me:  “Well, babies can eat from them”

And that was that, end of discussion, interest was lost and off he ran to go play.  It got me so tickled but it made me wonder if all of the sudden he had a memory of breastfeeding.  It was so out of the blue that it caught me off gaurd but the innocence in his question and matter of fact tone as well was so sweet.

I love the things my kids say and come up with, memories like these are what makes life worthwhile.

    I know what you mean. Just the other day my four year old went up to my husband, with his fists punching up at the air, saying, “Hey, you want a piece of meat!” We just fell with laughter. He meant to say, “Hey, you want a piece of me?”

    It was too cute. That one went straight into the memory book.

    Make sure you keep up with all the cute things. There will come a time when you’ll need to refer to them, reminding yourself they were once little angels :).

    Awesome… lol. How old is he now? I wished I could have nursed my kids longer. They all weaned themselves around 10 months. (walking age) My last baby actually would scream if I tried to nurse her. That was a sad way to end it. I didn’t have nicknames for my boobs, but my milk was “boobie juice”. Just thought I’d share.

    I admit that I laughed out loud at that nickname. I love how innocently little ones can bring up topics though. I am considerably older than my younger brothers and I remember the first day the youngest of the twins said the *f* word, not only did he say it but he sang it to a little melody as he sat in the backseat of the car and all we could do was snicker to ourselves while trying to ignore it as thought it wasn’t a big deal.

    LOL Ninny was the term my mom used also so it just naturally became the way we refer to them as well. I nursed all five of our children so my ‘ninnies’ have become not-such-a-big-deal around here LOL However, my 17-month-old, Zoe, can be eating brownies and ice cream but if I even whisper the word ‘ninny’ she will come running to jump in my lap and lay down, waiting on her fix haha I think the word ninny has magical powers – and apparently in your son’s case, it’s never to be forgotten!!! LOL

    Awww! I nursed my first baby until he was well beyond 2, but we never had a name for the things. They were just milk. My second one weaned at 11 months because I was pregnant, so I have yet to experience that. How funny that they can remember it! I don’t think my big boy does.
