Throughout the last week, lil’ Bubba has been assessing things down at the pool. Yes. That is right. He is just at the right height to have prime views of bellies, pee-pees, and thighs. This last week he has been unusually intrigued by my belly button. I have a belly button that really has no end. It is the deepest belly button I think most people have ever seen.
I used to always hope when preggers, that I would finally see it pop out to know it was NOT an open hole to my body. But alas, never happened. And you could still stick a finger in there, just to the tip, when 9 months pregnant. My husband was in awe. Let me also make this very clear, you could stick finger and touch my spine at my size 2 weight or my size 10 weight. Weight is not the issue. I just have an innie. Tis’ all. Now let’s move along.
I had a really close family friend over last night, who Maddox had not seen in a while. Maddox went up to him without a segue to orient and repeated these words:
“Aaron. My mommy has a deep hole. Wanna see it?”
I think I pooped myself on that one. My good friend Aaron took in stride and turned on me with a cocked eyebrow. My husband took over the dialogue steering wheel, and ushered the lil’ Man out of the room (Bubba not Aaron). Aaron got a bicep flex from Super Hubs.
