Oh, they were so sweet about it. All three of us were doing our best not to lose it laughing and we managed pretty well. DS would have been so embarrassed had we all cracked up. But it was SO funny and cute how earnest he was in sharing his tip on being such a good dentist patient.

If she sees a child, toddler, or baby with a pacifier or bottle, she calls them a baby. Loudly. "LOOK AT THE BABY MAMA! SO CUTE!". She also does this with children (even ones around her age) with not very much hair. It's a bit embarassing when she mentions it about an older child, say, in the middle of a grocery store.

DD's would call kids babies and also ask them to try to pick her up and carry her. So, kids who were both obviously taller and older than her. She's stopped that now that she's learned the word "kid".

Slender, fashionable, with pale skin and red lipstick?

Probably the worst part of it for the dental staff was the fact that there's no way in the world they could ever suggest that to their other patients and no way in the world to ask your DS to do that the next time.

Speaking of the next time, did they have an extra large bib for him? :

These are really making me laugh! I have a few:

1) DS2 (age 3) came into the stall with me in a public restroom while I went to the bathroom. I stood up to flush and he said in a loud, super clear voice "Mommy, why is your pee-pee RED???" I heard laughter throughout the bathroom.

2) We passed a little person walking into a restaurant and DS1 (about 4 at the time) said loud enough for the person to hear "Mommy, that man looks like a grownup AND a kid!"

3) DH and I were supposed to do something in town with some neighbor friends who have kids the same age. I was exhausted and didn't feel like participating, so I told my DH to tell them I was sick. (we just met them and felt bad bailing) So DH told them I was sick, except DS1 (age 5) interjected with "No, Dad, Mommy's not sick she just wanted to take a nap."

We are white, and live in a very homogenous area, or did, at the time, all white people, pretty much. DS was about 2 or 3 and we were driving through a very rural area of NC. We saw a very dark black man mowing his lawn, and DS-- thank the Gods we were in a closed car going 60mph-- says, in this incredulous whisper, "MAMA! I just saw a chocolate man!"
O. M. G. for the next month or two he kept saying "chocolate people" in public, right next to every black person we saw; I was mortified. I was like, we gotta get out more

OMG that is freaking hilarious!! I am so glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that!!

Here's ours: in the quintessential grocery store line, DS about 2yo, behind the requisite old lady, I mean really old, and DS says, in his loud 2yo voice, "Mama, does Nana have a vagina too?"

This happened to me once too in a public restroom inside a very fashionable store with very proper ladies outside standing at the mirror, except my son said "Mummy why is there blood in your wee-wee?" (Aussie for pee-pee) I stayed inside the toilet for as long as I could hoping the people who had heard it, had left!

I remember once when I was 14, waiting for a bus with my 4 year old sister, and there was also a nun waiting for the bus...my sister suddenly blurted out excitedly, "look there's Jesus waiting for the bus!" The nun looked very surprised but not amused. Of course being 14 and easily embarrassed at that age, I felt mortified wondering if the nun was offended!

HAHA! I said something similar as a kid. I think I was 4yrs old. We were in church (aka surrounded by the elderly) I piped up with
" mom, do old people have bums?" My mom said she was really embarassed

Annabelle, "Your baby is crying. Why won't you pick it up and take care of it? It's probably hungry, you should feed it. Babies like to nurse."

Ugh, more than once this has happened and I have only once gotten a non-death stare from the parents. The non-death stare parents gave the kid a bottle and it stopped crying.

Today my ds (who turned 3 today also) shouted "I am PENIS boy. That's because I like my penis."

Oh I just remembered another one. A few months ago we were at a drug store and the man who rang us out was a little overweight with a scruffy face and DS said "whoa, that man is a pirate!"

When my ds was a toddler, he would describe people by the color of their clothing...i.e. "That green boy pushed me on the slide".

We were in the grocery store once and he saw a baby that he thought was cute. The baby was wearing a white onesie and also happened to be Hispanic. After the baby and her grandma were out of sight, he kept bellowing, "Where did that WHITE baby go? I like that WHITE baby! I wanna see that WHITE baby again!" The grandma was not amused as we continued to pass each other in the grocery aisles. I kept saying "Yes, that baby WEARING WHITE is cute! My what a sweet baby in that WHITE shirt." It didn't help. He was not to be deterred. "I wanna see that WHITE baby!".

We were walking into a grocery store one day and a man was coming up behind us and he was a little shorter than average - not super short or anything, but my DD (4 at the time) thought he was really short - and she kept saying LOUDLY -"look at that man mommy isn't he little? He is sooo little - isn't he cute mommy? Oh - what a cute little man!" and she kept going on and on and on and on about how cute and little he was! I was mortified and I think he was embarrassed too - he started walking really fast into the store to get away from us! When she was younger and was pling I would always say "good job" if she managed to get to the potty in time etc - so when I went this time she says loudly " Oh you did a good job mommy - you went to the potty!" I could hear the little chuckles outside the stall!

At least, though, "bum" is a softer, more benign word than "vagina". My son has always had perfect diction, and there was no mistaking what he said!

You know, though-- I knew someone once, a white American person who was married to, and had children with, a person from central America. They'd lived down there for some time before moving back to the US. I was told that Hispanic people are white, that "Hispanic" is not a race. I was pretty sure it wasn't a race, but maybe there is someone here who can clarify that and tell me if that's correct or not?
Aren't Hispanic peoples' origins in white people mixing with native (central) American peoples? Hmmm...

I do a lot of online surveys and they usually ask race (white/caucasian, black/AA, Asian, and Native American are usually the choices), then a separate question if you're of hispanic/latino origin, so no, it's not a race.

When I was younger I used to refer to people by the color of their clothing too. My mom would get really embarrassed whenever I commented loudly on the "black lady over there" (in a black shirt of course).

At 2 yrs ds came with me to a day treatment school for children who could not be part of a community school (due to violent behaviour). We where picking up my client who was 7 yrs at the time. All of a sudden my son starts running down the schools side walk screaming, "DADDY DADDY!!!". There was a man around my age (between 20-25 yrs) walking towards us. The look of horror on his face! I just apologize and told ds that wasn't daddy and kept walking.

DS is 4 yrs now and gets a kick out of his penis. He'll get out of the shower with a towel wrapped around him, run into the living room (doesn't matter who's around), rip off the towel and scream, "Look, I'm naked and have a penis!". Luckily most of the people around are men (dh's friends) and just laugh. We've actually curbed this behaviour quite a bit to the point he'll only do it once or twice a month, instead of every time he gets out of the bathroom.

When DS was 2yo, he ran up to the cable guy b/c he mistook him for daddy. The cable guy said it happened to him all the time. He figured that at that age they are mostly looking at the knees and shoes.

Well, not my kid (the 6 year old I nanny for), but it's classic...

G: I saw the weirdest video on youtube! It was a lady with huge boobies squirting milk in a man's mouth!

(his mom interjects, saying "Oh honey I'm sure she was just feeding her baby," trying to make the situation somehow less awkward)

G: NO MOM! It was a BIG man, not a baby!

My mom said I did this when I was very little. At the time, my dad was in the air force and we lived on base. My mom shopped at the commissary and I would scream "Daddy" at every man in uniform that walked by. I am 50 and this was in the very early 60s so you can imagine the added mortification of the times!

That's freakin' awesome!

There have been so many things but lately my 5-year-old has just started calling some people African-American instead of "brown people".

Her problem is that anyone looking slightly over 45 is deemed an "old lady" which is not kept to herself.
