The Kids are certainly observant August 27, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — aggieonboard @ 7:25 pm

So we’ve been back at school for three days (feels like three lifetimes) and several of my kids have asked the inevitable question. By far the most amusing exchange happened this afternoon. Here it is, transcribed for your pleasure:

Student, staring intently at my midsection which is about eye level for her: Are you pregnant?

Me: Yes.

Her: Is it yours?

Me: ?

Her: Wait, of course it is.

Her: What is it?

Me: Hopefully a human.

I know people like to “joke” about paternity (as if implying that your hormonally-imbalanced coworker/friend/relative/wife might be sleeping around is in some way amusing and/or appropriate) but that’s the first time anyone has questioned my role in the proceedings.

    Maybe she’s watched some reruns of Friends Season 4 (the one where Phoebe has her brother’s babies)? I’d like to think so, anyway.

    Oh, lol, she was just a little confused at first.
