My nieces are insatiably curious about my pregnancy.

Every time I see them, they ask me hundreds of questions...and they ask their mom questions daily.

Today, they were playing dolls in their playroom, and their mom couldn't help but overhear this conversation that they were pretending to have on the phone:

8-yr-old: I'm at work now. How are my kids.

3-yr-old: Oh, they're fine. Guess what, I'm pregnant!

8-yr-old: Congratulations, that's wonderful! What's your name again?

3-yr-old: Aunt Amber

8-yr-old: Oh, how do you spell that?

3-yr-old: B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

(Hey, it's one of the few words she knows how to spell. Apparently, it's in a song.)

And at that point, their mom dissolved into laughter and raced for the phone. "Pretty accurate," she told me.

Awe Aunt Bananas, soon you'll be able to have the pod stories to amuse us with even more

I hope your niece has never heard the "unedited" version of that bananas song (by Gwen Stephani). It's bad news for a little one, let me tell you. I'd hate for her to learn how to spell some other words from that song. Yikes!

Thats so funny that your 3 year old niece learned how to spell bananas from "Holla back girl"! That is quite funny - you haven't been craving them too lately, have you?
