The Anatomy Lesson

For Christmas my son received several Planet Hero action figures. This morning he was playing with the only female planet, Venus Dazzle. Just imagine Barbie suited up and ready to save our Solar System with her 38-21-34 figure!

He asked my husband what was on her chest. Mind you, he has asked me this question many times before, and I have always been able to convince him that they are part of her "suit of armor". But, as most men would, my husband promptly replies, "those are her boobs - ladies have them".

My sweet, wonderful and observant son, whom I have cared for since he took his first breath states, "yes, mommy does have them .... they are right by her stomach! Mind you, I am 8 months pregnant - my second pregnancy in his short little life of 3 years so of course he thinks my anatomy is a little off!
Oh, the joys of motherhood!
