There’s a baby in my head.

by doodaddy on July 9, 2008

“Don’t brush my hair, there’s a baby in there!”

That’s when I got my phone set to “record.”

Boobaby’s been claiming that the baby she’s carrying is wherever in her is convenient at the moment. Try to tickle her armpit, and she’s got an armpit pregnancy, so they’re off limits! Want to clip her toenails? Yep, sure enough, Boo’s fetus is developing there, too.

But it’s been hard to share. This time, the phone was ready. Here’s the audio — it’s 19 seconds long:

[audio:BabyInMyHead.mp3]

Transcript for y’all Dutch-inflected Irish et al. who can’t understand American:

Boo: “There’s a BABY in my head.”
(pause)
Doodaddy (incredulously): “In your head?”
(pause)
Boo (condescendingly): “Yeah, in my head.”
Doodaddy: “Babies don’t grow in your head.”
Boo: “Yes, they do.”
Doodaddy: “No, they don’t.”
Boo: “YEAH, they do.”
Doodaddy: “Notheydont.”
Boo: “Yeahtheydo.”
Doodaddy: “Notheydont.”
Boo: “Naw, this is my phone.” (Grabs it and presses “stop” on the recording function.)


Sorry, I know it’s been all about the cute kid quotes lately. More complaints about mean people at the playground returning soon.

The Poo told me she had a baby in her belly. Then she went to the other room, came back and said:

“Mama, I went to the doctor and he made me go to sleep and he took out my baby. I didn’t feel a thing!”

Someone’s been listening to mommy and daddy talk about an upcoming c-section!

They are so funny, aren’t they?

Oh, yeah, we get a lot of that. In pretty graphic detail, too — Boo’s go the “how babies are made” book…

You found an age-appropriate-yet-not-too-dumbed-down how babies are made book? Do share.

Sadly, out of print, but yeah, I kind of like it. And it’s got goofy pictures.
