Sudden Awareness

Zboy is turning nine at the end of this month. With greater age comes greater awareness.

This morning, he was walking around pulling his chest out into mini-boobs. When I asked him what he was doing, he said he was "stretching his pecs".

"...but you don't have pecs, Mom."

"Yes, I do. Everyone with arms and a chest has pecs. Even the dog has pecs."

He let go of his chest and looked at me for a moment.

"Oh. Your's are just gigantic and long. Must be hard to hug with those things..."

Dude. I nearly fell off my chair laughing.

And he's officially interested in body parts.

Time for his own anatomy book- seriously. He'll be curious to know gender differences.

p.s. and beause he's curious now is the best time for him to learn and retain new info.

Ok. Unrelated but Sayre, I was wondering if you could email me at
I needed some info about florida tv stations. I am looking for videographers & photographers for my wedding and was wondering if you have info on freelancers.

Thank you!
