    That’s hilarious!! Starting young…hmmm

  2. Lilly says:

    Sweet wittle Miles.
    I also like that somehow the spelling here is peni$. I don’t know why, but it looks kinda right somehow.

  3. jess says:

    i have been reading your blog for a few weeks now, and i really enjoy it!
    i had to comment for the first time tonight- as the mother of two little boys, i have had almost the exact same conversation! your post brought a real smile to my face when i needed one this evening. thanks!

    btw- i have been checking your holiday gift guide recently and love all your suggestions. i am definitely planning on my boys finding a few of your recommended items under our tree this year.

  4. BetteJo says:

    Oh, he’s already started. Sigh-h. Didn’t know the delusions began at such a young age.

  5. Sarah says:

    Oh, how wittle Miles always manages to make me laugh!

  6. MarysMom says:

    What is it with boys and their …? Oddly enough, my five-year-old daughter calls them “peanuts”.

  7. Nikki says:

    Thank you for the laugh. I remember those conversations with my sons and they always cracked me up. Too funny!!

  8. Ellen says:

    Delurking here, because that is SO FUNNY and I just love it. I have 2 sons, and one of them in particular is FASCINATED by his peni$ as well. I absolutely love that conversation! And your pics are gorgeous too!

  9. Rocks In My Dryer says:

    Oh my word, I am laughing so hard…..

  10. Karen Vogel says:

    That is very cute, indeed. With all those big brothers running around, he must be feeling a little outclassed in the genitals department.

  11. Lisa V says:

    No wonder they grow up thinking 6 inches is a foot. They kid themselves early on.

  12. Christy says:

    That is hilarious! You can’t teach that…it’s bred right in there with their DNA.

  13. Anna says:

    HA! Great kid…sounds like he can hold his own in a room full of big brothers!

  14. Karly says:

    Definitely a sign of a child with older brothers! :) I love him.

  15. Dot says:

    My husband and I just died laughing when we read this!

  16. christine says:

    The testosterone oozes out of my laptop every time I pull up your page.

  17. Poppy says:


    Typical male :)

  18. Valeta says:

    My 4 year old says the same thing. Silly boys.

  19. fidget says:

    hee hee hee you can totally tell he has older brothers :D

  20. stacie says:

    So Funny! I’m giggling not just over his quip, but your response was just as classic!

  21. Victoria says:

    I can’t breathe!


  22. Victoria says:

    wait…wait… cinnamon buns? I don’t want to know, do I?

  23. Estee says:

    Oh how I love almost three-year-olds. Miles and my little almost three-year-old would be bestest friends eber. :)

  24. ShackelMom says:

    This one totally cracked me up! Priceless!

  25. She Likes Purple says:

    Funniest thing I’ve heard all day.

  26. Heather says:

    I think I just woke the house with my laughter! Oh my… Boys.

    My cousin smashed his with a rock on the concrete (honest to God) when he was Miles age. Go figure! It still (unfortunately for him) comes up at family get togethers and he even still wonders why he did it. Maybe it wasnt big enough? heehee!

  27. Tricia says:

    And where did he learn that? too funny!

  28. Beth says:

    I just love this. :-)

  29. ollka says:

    Oh, Heather, that’s just scary. Hope he’s healed well.
    And Miles - too cute, too cute.

  30. peepnroosmom says:

    That cracks me up. You handled that so very well.

  31. Angela says:

    ROTFL! I love it!

  32. Maddy says:

    That’s hiwarias!

  33. Denise says:

    I hope you share this conversation with him when he’s a teenager - and then again when he’s 30.


  34. Nicki says:

    I particularly love this conversation when your 4 year old decides to have it with your closest friend!!!

  35. Brigitte says:

    Yes, it’s great that you blog these small details. It will be great fodder for embarrassing them when they’re older! Then again, he may be PROUD of this particular conversation.

  36. Kristi says:

    That is a great conversation!

  37. Heather B. says:

    It’s endearing when boys/men lie to themselves.

  38. Mrs. Schmitty says:

    OMG! Don’t you just love how they start that at such a young age! LOL

  39. Elena J says:

    That’s hysterical!!!

  40. Boomom says:


    Cannot lose it..am at work…cannot lose …


    Absolutely hysterical !

  41. RuthWells says:

    Too perfect! As the mother of boys, I bow to your superior wit in responding to such matters. I tend to stumble and bumble a bit. Well done!

  42. Amy says:

    how funny! my 2.5 yr old calls it his tail. we did not teach him this, he came up with it himself.

  43. josy says:

    i never, ever laugh before i get coffee. except today, apparently. thanks.

  44. mama's got moxie says:

    hahaha!!! that’s hilarious! i was driving one day with my 6-year-old cousin in the backseat several years ago and he told me his was big enough to hit me and the front windshield!! it’s amazing how boys seem to believe this stuff right out of the womb!! haha…

  45. jane_hates-dick says:

    Thank you. I was having a terrible, no good, PMS sort of morning, and this totally lightened my mood. What a guy!

  46. shaz says:

    oh man, that’s just the cutest!! :)

  47. Monica says:

    LMAO That is way funny. I just love what boys say. My 3yr old thinks he’s is the best toy ever which is just great when your out in public. SIGH Love your answer too sounds like something I would say. Thanks for the laugh

  48. angela wd says:

    I didn’t know they started thinking like this so soon! What is it, part of their DNA?

  49. BOSSY says:

    And this is the part where Bossy dies, but it was worth it.

  50. Mary W says:

    Heh that is hilarious - they all like to think that. My middle son called his “wenis” until he learned that “wee” was never to be associated with his penis.

  51. The Simple Family says:

    I have a feeling your husband is going to claim responsibility for that genetic trait.

  52. gina says:

    As the mother of 4 girls I am ROTFL laughing AND thanky my lucky stars for my girls. :)

    If you get a minute, swing by my blog, I am posting some links to some great giveaways and who doesn’t love to win free stuff right?!

  53. Joy H says:

    My ped. corrected me quickly when I asked him to check my 2nd child’s ‘little penis’ at his two wk. old checkup,lol…………………’you may never call it a little penis’. Miles has got it right!

  54. Simplyme says:

    Is it an instinct for males of all ages to be proud of their peni$? This is so hilarious!

  55. carrien says:

    Thanks for the gigantic belly laugh. [still chuckling]

  56. Kathryn says:

    And so it begins!

  57. lotus07 says:

    …or, your typical conversation with an intoxicated 40 years old….

  58. Tina says:

    There you have it. Proof that it is male instict to think that his is big. Too funny.

  59. Qalballah says:

    Well you know what Roseanne said - men are good at reading maps ‘cos only they can get their heads around one inch meaning one mile….

  60. Christine says:

    Ahhh, the joys of wittle boys! I just had to comment on this one. It was tooooo cute to read!

  61. Susan says:

    Too funny! My oldest (he’s 5) recently dropped trou in front of his grandma to show her how big his was compared to his baby cousin’s!

  62. mom101 says:

    3 going on 35. Sigh.

  63. Lizzy in the Burbs says:

    Oh, Miles! Your stories about him make me laugh so hard, wove him!

  64. CaliforniaGrammy says:

    Oh-my-gosh, Chris. You totally crack me up! Thanks for lots of laughs. And thank that widdle Miles too!

  65. genpoco says:

    i swear they are born with that embedded in their little brains. lol! he is so sweet.

  66. Matilda says:

    Wow - what good material to use to toast Miles at his wedding!

  67. Earl says:

    I love Miles, but what is almost as hilarious, is is the female view of men and their peni$’s……….

  68. Heather says:

    That kills me. Boys will be boys. Mine, too.

  69. Manic Mommy says:

    Soon after RC was born, Andy’s cousin came over and said to me “so I hear RC is hung like a truck driver.”

    a. It was a topic of conversation
    b. It was clearly a point of pride for my husband
    c. Are truck drivers notoriously well hung?

  70. Heather says:

    I overheard a similar conversation between my son and his dad. My son was wondering when his would grow as big as his dad’s. He called his dad’s “cool.” All my husband could do was laugh.

  71. Beth says:

    I just had a conversation with my almost 4 yr old yesterday–he was wondering where my “peni$$$” was. When I reminded him I didn’t have one, he remembered that ..

    –”Oh…yeah, you hab a wittle hole. Why do you hab a wittle hole?” said almost 4 yr old.
    –”So that I can go to the bathroom. Why do you have a peni$?” said I.
    –”so I can pee too!” said almost 4 yr. old.

    Never have I had this conversation with my daughter, nor her with her dad. Oh, the fascination boys have with the purpose and priority of their peni$.

  72. Charmed says:

    As the mom of 5 boys (no girls) I can totally relate to this conversation, and tell you, the bigger they get, the bigger they think it gets. Just ask my 17 yr old.

  73. Lovebabz says:

    Boys are just little men in training…big P indeed.

  74. Maya says:

    All laughs and size/boy/peni$ size jokes aside: That is by far the cutest lil’ set of ‘cinnamon buns’ I’ve seen in…quite some time. The wee sturdy legs alone are enough to cause spontaneous ovulation. For me, at least.

  75. Better or worse? « All Grown Up? says:

    [...] check out Chris’ conversation with her almost 3-yr old. Welcome to the world I live in. I promise you will [...]

  76. carrie says:

    I did not see that one coming! Too funny!

  77. Jeanne says:

    I know this is a late reply.

    Never mind what Miles said.

    How can you get past that picture? That hat! “He’s too cute for everyone.” I’ve only said this about my grandson, so Miles is in the best, cutest company.
