The Boobie holder

Warning**Mature Content**

A couple weekends ago we were all walking through Target. I was pushing the babies in the double stroller, and Emily and Scott were slowly following us. Every once in awhile I would hear them giggling. I could tell they were up to no good of some sort. Then all of the sudden we pass the lingerie section at which time Emily says, very loudly, "Look at all those booby holders!"

Mortified doesn't even begin to cover it. And of course Scott can only snicker. Of course.

Well, then a few nights ago my friend Meesh brought over some pajamas that her daughter had out grown. This was perfect because Emily had outgrown most of her summer jammies, and had been insisting on wearing only the flannel long sleeved winter jammies.

She loves all of these "new" jammies because her older cool friend Kori wore them. But there are two nightgowns that are her favorites, and both have adjustable straps, very similar to a bra. Emily refers to these as her "booby holder" nightgowns.


So today, after getting soaked and full of mud at a backyard splash birthday party, Emily came home and climbed into bed for nap. She was dry and semi-clean at this point, but she and I both commented about the necessity for a bath later this evening. Then Emily, very so matter-of-factly says, "Hey mom, can you please make sure my new booby holder nightgowns are clean so I can wear them after my bath."

What do you say to that? Oh well. You win some, you lose some 'eh?

I'm just laughing out loud righ now. I think that is a fantastic way to refer to lingerie...a booby holder nighty. I'm going to use that one on my hubby. :) (I'll be sure to credit Emily!)

Kori would have been about Emily Grace's age when she was watching me launder some lingerie... she wanted to know all about that stuff:

K: Mommy, those are pretty jammies! Why don't you wear those?

M: I do sometimes.

K: I have never seen you wear those.

M: I wear them under my jammies.

K: Oh, so they are underjammies.

M: I suppose so.

Anyway, Victoria officially sells Underjammies, if you were wondering.

I love it. Alana is intrigued about anything "booby" but in our home the whole area is the "nipple." Got to love having girls!

What makes it even more funny is that Emily has always referred to them as "pink dots" until recently.
