This happened a number of years ago when my oldest niece was about 4 years old.

When I got to their house for Easter dinner, she ran in and gave me a hug, then ran into the dining room, returning with an Easter basket.  She sat down with me and showed me the egg she had decorated for me.  She showed me the jelly beans that were under the grass and pointed out that I had *two* chocolate marshmallow bunnies.  She then looked at me and said "Now remember pwv, you have to share."

From the other room I heard her mother say "no DD, pwv does not have to share."  She had apparently eaten both her bunnies and tried to get to her younger sister's bunnies as well;  but she just knew that I would let her have mine.

You reminded me of my niece when we went out to buy chocolate. There was a shop a couple of towns over that my mother liked, so we all piled in the car and went. B bought dark chocolate turtles with her allowance, and I bought all milk chocolate. B thinks everyone should love dark chocolate (my buying milk prompted a 'But, why?'). As we were sampling our treats, she said , Aunty, would you like to try my dark chocolate? You should!' 'Well ok, then...' 'Okay, then, here, lick these fingers!'  :D :D :D I thought my Dad would drive up a tree!

A good friend of mine just had a baby girl a few weeks ago. Her next youngest is 6, and she was talking to him about the new baby and where the new baby will sleep, and how the baby was in her stomach, but she would go to the hospital and Baby would be born, then come home. After several such conversations, her 6yo had an epiphany and one day exclaimed: "you mean the Baby is going to come out NAKED!" Totally scandalized :)

Twiggy, your story reminded me of a funny new baby story.

I have difficult pregnancies and early deliveries.  When my oldest was 2, I had my second child, who spent several weeks in NICU.  The following year I had my youngest, who spent 6 months in the NICU.  Finally, the wonderful day came and I was able to bring my third child home.  I was sitting on the couch with the baby and the older two were trying to compete for who got to "hold" the baby.  Oldest son pushed middle son out of the way and said "This is MY baby.  If you want one, mom will have to go to the hospital and get you another one!"

I'm assuming because I didn't have normal pregnancies and was back and forth to the hospital before I delivered (hospitalized bedrest) and then had to go back and forth after they were born to visit in NICU, oldest didn't realize the whole "baby in mommy's tummy" thing and thought a hospital was a place where you could go shop for babies.

My husband, daughter, and I were watching Househunters the other night and they were in Miami.  My granddaughter was playing nearby and my husband made a comment about living in Miami. My granddaughter said to me, "Grandma, do you want to live in Grandpa's Ami?"

It took a minute.
