outfit of the day(bird): Dick is short for Richard

kimono ~ Marshalls
tank ~ H&M
jeans ~ Ross
shoes ~ thrifted
necklace ~ Opitz

When we were in San Francisco, I got a text from my sister telling me that she busted Henry teaching Eva that the word "dick" also meant penis. He was incredibly embarrassed, and Eva was pleased that he had been caught.

When we got home, I was alone with Eva, and I asked her, "what naughty word did Henry teach you while you were away?" She hemmed and hawed for a while, not wanting to tell me. She finally then sheepishly said, "Hank. He told me that Hank means penis." "Oh really? Is that what he told you?" "Oh no, mama, I was wrong, it's not Hank! Dicks! It's dicks that means penis."

I suppressed a very loud laugh, and then did the whole parenty thing where I talk to her about how not to use that word. But man, I forgot all the things kids talk about when they think no adults are listening.

  1. That is a funny, charming story.

    It reminds me of an incident when I was young, perhaps 5 or 6 years old. My mother and I were roughhousing and, in the thick of our physical contact, I called her a "homo." She suddenly stopped, got all serious and called over my father. The two of them stared at me and asked me what I meant by that word. I explained that I thought a homo was "someone abnormally interested in touching the body of another person." (I had no understanding of its actual meaning or connection to same-sex relations.) My parents breathed a sigh of relief. Looking back, I feel sorry for them. Parenting is tough work.

  2. kids! i'm always shocked with the things they come up with!

  3. Kids do say the darndest things. Just for the fun of it I'm going to take Eva's advice and try calling someone a real Hank next time and just see how it goes. ; )

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE that kimono!


  4. Bahahahahahaha! I am laughing out loud in the office. oops :)
    And now I'm wanting to try on a kimono.

  5. Your kimono is to dye for. Kids say the craziest stuff.

  6. Hank! Oh that's funny. I love it. I also love your kimono - amazing!

  7. Oh my goodness - that's so great! Kids are the best. And so is your kimono!!

  8. Hank! I might have to try that out next time some jerk cuts me off in traffic! Much better than what I REALLY want to say. :)

    And I'm wearing almost the exact same outfit today! Except my top layer is a sweater because it's only 25 degrees.

  9. LOL Aw man! My boys are getting to the age now--13 and 9--where they are starting to . . . discuss things with each other. When I catch them or hear something randomly I have to just stifle the giggles. Gorgeous kimono!

  10. Ha ha ha! Hank. I am going to call my husband that the next time he pisses me off and see what he says. He'll be all confused. How about trying to explain to an 8 year old how it's not nice to call someone a douchebag. Yeah - had to do that last week. I'm loving the long kimono!

  11. Ha ha, that is super funny! I remember giggling over the Famous Five when I was young- Dick and Fanny! So silly!
    I love that kimono!! So pretty! The whole look is just fantastic!x

  12. I can't even. That's hilarious.

  13. Omg, Hank! Serious comedy right there! I don't know how you did not burst out laughing!

  14. love that kimono duster!! i think it's so funny...kids say the darndest things.

  15. This is so adorably cute and hilarious! Yes, so true what kids talk about when the adults aren't listening. What a fab kimono! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  16. That title had me LOL and yes I knew that. Your outfit is gorgeous. A little bohemian, a little edgy, a little colorful and very much Megan. I adore your long kimono and silver-capped radiant orchid ballet flats. =)
