Between work with Tippi Toes and serving in the children's ministry at church, I have direct contact with kids ages 18 months - 12 years every single day of the week. This makes for some interesting and entertaining conversations in everyday life, but add a growing belly to the mix and the comments from kids are just hilarious! I love their honesty and innocence. I wish I could remember all the funny things I've heard, but I thought I'd share a few that I can remember!
"Miss Brittany, why is your belly kinda fat?" -Ivie, 4 year old Tippi Toes dancer. If you've seen my facebook, this is the same silly girl that when changing into her dance clothes one day exclaimed, "I'm a nudey-patootie!" She's crazy!
9 year old girl at church: "Miss Brittany, are you pregnant?" Me: "Yes I am." 9 year old: "Oh, good. I didn't think you could be that fat."
"Does your baby like this song? Is she dancing in there like us?" -Kaelyn, 4 year old Tippi Toes dancer. I get a version of this one almost every dance class!
This one is from today... Elke (4 year old Tippi Toes dancer): "What's in there?" Me: "A baby!" Elke: "It looks like a big fat ball under your shirt." Me: "Well...thanks Elke." Elke: "How did the baby get in there?" Me: Pause... "God put her in there." Elke: "What?! How did He get her in there?" Me: "Ummm... God can do anything! It's kinda like magic I guess." Elke: "Ooooh ok." Me: Relieved that she was ok with that answer! Haha!
There are so many more but I can't remember them! That these little ones keep me entertained is an understatement! I love them and love all our funny interactions! I'm sure there will be more to come as my belly keeps growing and growing and GROWING!
