Three Year Old Catches Woman by Surprise!

Koby and I were shopping at the local Wal-Mart. He was strapped into the child's seat by the handle of the cart, being such a good little boy. He was smiling, laughing, and doing the cutest little dance. He was having a good day, despite his illness.

At the time, Koby was three, but only the size of a six-month old baby due to the kidney disease (Fanconi's Syndrome). He had the whitest blond hair, big, bright blue eyes, and the rosiest red lips, which would spout out shocking expressions to unsuspecting admirers.

As we emerged from the baby section and into a main isle, an elderly woman approached us with the biggest grin on her face. She went straight to Koby, bent down to become face-to-face with him and said with excitement, "Oh my, my . . . Aren't you just the cutest little baby?!?" She gently pinched his cheeks and made a fool of herself right there by the potato chips and snack foods.

Over and over, getting louder and closer each time, she would speak fluent 'Jibber-Jabanese' "Ah . . . Goochie goochie goo! Ah Goochie goochie goo!"

I could tell Koby was getting frustrated with her and doing his best to hold back. He would leer at me, over her shoulder, giving me a look that said, "Alright Mom, this is getting old. DO SOMETHING!" But she was such a sweet lady, and I didn't want to be rude.

Then Koby broke his silence with, "Yah Yah Yah, Lady! Your breath stinks! Get out of my face! My jaw dropped and so did hers.

She stammered back in shock! I know she was thinking, "OMG . . . this infant can talk and he's so rude!"

That's when I stepped in and explained his age and disease to her, reassuring her that she wasn't senile.

Hey, kids are refreshingly honest!

Thanks for the follow. I'm kind of a sarcastic diva around my house myself.. unfortunately it goes over my children's heads still.
