You Never Know What He'll Say

Over the past couple of days, Tristan has kept things interesting with his comments. I'll give you a couple of examples:

On Monday, we were at the office and one of his very favorite patients was in. She is a retired woman without children who basically spoils mine rotten. On this particular day, she came in and brought a married couple with her. The husband was getting examined by Channing, and his wife and Tristan's favorite patient were sitting in front of my desk in the waiting area. That's when Tristan started his colorful conversation (I'll call our patient 'Mary' and her friend 'Evelyn'):

Tristan: Hey, you know what? I'm wearing underwear.
Mary: Great. So am I.
Tristan: My mommy doesn't wear underwear.
At this point, I'm waiting for him to finish. He doesn't...
Mary: Well, that's ok.
I'm still waiting...nothing! The ladies are laughing.
Me: Um, Tristan, what does mommy wear?
Tristan: My mommy wears panties.
At this point I was able to breathe again. I was still embarrassed, but could breathe.
Mary: Annie, Tristan's telling all your secrets!

Now that's how you make a good first impression with new patients!

Today, I was driving Tristan to school, and we came to a light. There was a car in front of me who, in my opinion, had more than enough time to turn but stopped at the green light. So I said:

Go, PaPa!
Tristan: Mommy, did you just say 'PaPa'?
Me: Yes, buddy. I was just...
Tristan: Is PaPa up there?
Me: No, I just said that. PaPa isn't really here. I'm sorry.
After about 30 seconds, and we're still waiting at the light...
Tristan: MOVE IT, MIMI!!!
I couldn't help it. I just completely lost it and busted out laughing. I know, I know...not the best example, but it was SO hilarious!
Tristan: What are you laughing at, Mommy?
Me: You, baby. You're just funny.

I know. I shouldn't say stuff like that while driving. I'm working on it...I promise!
