Caleb and I were casually strolling along the cereal aisle at the grocery store. I was focused on the cereal boxes and prices when I noticed how quiet it was all of a sudden. Normally during this time, the sugar cereal questions would have been firing off at machine gun speed...

"Mom. Mom. Mom. Can we get this one?"

I look over my shoulder to make sure Caleb is still with me when I see him eying a lady on the opposite side of the aisle. I quickly put a few boxes of cereal into our cart hoping to avoid the sugar cereal requests all together and begin walking. As we turn the corner into Center Aisle Mayhem Caleb turns to me with all seriousness and says:

"Mom, that lady had short boobies. (Looking at mine) You have long ones, good-job, Mom." And then gives my chest a sort of high five.

Mortified I am. For certainly, he couldn't have picked a more crowded part of the store to share his matter of fact conclusion.

Thanks for the rah rah, sweetheart. If you only knew... short boobies are in.

Boys really are competitive! That's a great blackmail story for when he comes home with a nice girl to met the parents :)
