Anatomy 101 as taught by Jaxon


So, I was helping Jaxon put on his shoes today when he points directly at my chest and says... "What are those??" My husband was sitting right there and we were trying to stifle giggling at the question and I am trying to figure out what to say that won't be repeated by my 4 year old autistic son. I wipe the smirk off my face and say, "That is my chest" not really wanting to use correct anatomy in this case.

He replies, "NO! That is not what they are!!!" A glance to my husband was a definite mistake because now he is visibly laughing and he is trying desperately to hide it. I was instantly curious as to just what he might come up with and wondering exactly WHAT ARE they teaching him at that school??? "Well, then what are they?" I asked...

He said, "THEY'RE BUMPS!"

Silly me.. of course they are.. I guess Jaxon is learning his anatomy from Fergie. How on this good earth did he figure out how to turn on my Nano!?

And I'm sure they are lovely! When my son was 3, he did a two handed grab when I was talking to our insurance agent. Those bumps can be such a nuissance!

He is adorable! What is it with boys and bumps? My twins cannot leave 'em alone...

I dont' even think mine would qualify as bumps...

Mosquito bites, maybe.

I was carrying my three year old son to the park a while ago and he grabs me both hands and asks "Why do you have these two chubbies?" Of course we are walking by a ton of construction workers at the time too. Nice.

My boys are so obsessed it is scary.

Bumps is great. I like that.

Piper asked me the other day why I don't have a "boob crack." Crayton concurred and said "oh, ya, mom. You don't. How come?" Nice when they notice those things:).
