Bio not provided
My husband's mother is Chinese/Burmese. Our children look like a beautiful mix of the two of us. His asian slanted eyes, with my blue eyed coloring. He is half asian himself, so the genes aren't TOO dominate coming from him. But I feel bad for his mom when we're out. Especially when we visited NYC, everyone looked at her like she was our mother's helper/sitter lol

All of my kids have seemed to form their own language before beginning english words. For my eldest, he would say "Doppy" for Pizza. I have no clue where he got it from and the first time he said it I literally went through the kitchen with him pointing to what he wanted saying "doppy!!!!" trying to figure it out. He had a speech delay as well (actually regressed) but eventually caught up. He's now 6 and finishing up 2nd grade.
My 2nd son had this language of crazy words like "dookie, dohkie, dahkie, koof..." I kid you not. I had NO IDEA what he was saying but his brother figured it out every time so the eldest became the translator. He's still very much my crazy guy who does things just to make us laugh. I think his comedian side was just coming through at an early age.
My daughter is 3 and still says things funny, although we always use the correct word after she says it funny. For instance "hand" is said as "line". She'll get there eventually.

My 6yr old reads quiet well!! Loves books. Especially science books or books that are very technical in nature.
So cute you're son said that. My boys are obsessed with babies/Twins right now. Every now and then they see me naked - like when we change out of swimsuits at the Y. They ask me about my breasts (again) and I remind them that they make milk for babies to drink.. just like they did. Then the 4yr old says "*sigh* I want you to have more babies mom." I tell ya.. it's such a difficult conversation to have! ;)

During my third daughter's BIRTH. I had an induction at 35 weeks for "low fluids". Over the course of 3 (yes THREE) days during the induction, I met a whole slew of nurses. The last being the absolute best. When I finally got an epidural and had time to sleep, my doula and I struck up a conversation about the relation between Grey's Anatomy and real hospital hook-ups. She admitted that she knew of a few that were Grey's Anatomy worthy. Then she mention the "mc-dreamy" of the hospital saying his name... "Dr Pecker".
My doula and I giggled... "wait. Excuse me... Dr. What.. I mean.. who?" She repeated "Dr Pecker and said I'd meet him soon because he was the on call OB that day.
Sure enough, he walks in later. He was very dreamy which made having a vaginal exam even all that more awkward (I was still just 5cms).
Admittedly, I giggled because "Dr Pecker" had an ironic name and was just doing his professional best... and all I could do was stare at my doula who was also trying REALLY hard to stifle laughs. We both failed. Miserably. He walked out and we both finally let out our cackles and roaring laughs. As it turns out.. his name *isn't* "Pecker" but rather "PETTker". Nursie poo should learn to enunciate!

I don't own one! With my first baby I had an Advent isis. It was REALLY painful to pump and I'd only get about an ounce out with the pump. With my 2nd, I threw the Isis in the trash. A friend let me borrow her Medela swing pump and it was SO gentle compared. My only concern is that seems like a "big" pump compared to the Medela. Does it take up a lot of room? We're planning baby #4 now! Can't wait!

I especially loved the picture of the grandma painting her grandson's nails. a-dorable! I had two boys first, and THEN my little girl. We've painted their nails from the beginning way before I had my daughter. I would "torture" my husband by giving him pedicures (oh come on, he loves it.) Then again, when we met he had a PINK mohawk - and I completely fell in love with him.

Please don't put the smurf on your penis.
My son in regards to a disabled veteran at the store.. "LOOK!!! He has a toy leg!!!!"
For all the "kiss my butt" "kiss my penis" ones, I just kiss my hand then touch the "ouchie" part of the affected area. Say "okay, there, now run go play." Thankfully that's worked in the past for us.
