Speaking of Strengths

I was playing Jenga with Jordan recently.  In her version of the game, each stick that you pull out has a question written on it like  "What was the best day of your life?"  or "Who is the cutest boy in your class?"

Jordan got the question, "What is your best physical attribute?' 

JORDAN:  What's an attribute?
ME:  It's like a trait or feature. Something about the way you look.
JORDAN:  Oh, I guess mine would be my hair or my smile.
ME:  Actually, I would definitely say it's your eyes.  You have gorgeous eyes!
JORDAN:  And yours would be... your smile
... or your boobs.

I almost died.  The funny thing about it was ... she was dead serious.(and she's seven!)

So, I guess for the foreseeable future, I will be writing in rhyme and buying some low cut dresses.

So much fun, Corey! I think I need to look for that version of Jenga. :)

Melissa said...

Bwa ha ha! Aren't you the lucky mom?! All my kids ever talk about is my butt, and not in a good way!

Tess said...

oh lordy lord, I needed that laugh this morning!

Joanne Fritz said...

Oh, Corey, that's HILARIOUS! I'm still laughing. Kids are a hoot! Treasure this time in their lives. Because when they get older, they definitely won't be sharing this stuff with you.

K said...

OH MY GOSH, this made me pee a little. You must have a REALLY nice rack. So so so funny. I wish we lived close enough to have playdates. I think Jordan and I would get along famously.

Little Ms J said...

Awesome. Your Jordan is simple perfection!

HA!

A similar thing happened to me the othe rnight. I was cuddled up next to my 4-year-old reading his bedtime story, and he reached down my shirt for a quick grope (which he often still does; it's another bedtime thing) and he said, "Wow, Mom, you have tons of boobies."

I almost choked, I laughed so hard! The thing is, I DON'T. I'm almost flat since I stopped nursing my kids. But, he was completely serious! Too funny. And, bless him for saying it.
