When rowan was sick in the hospital this spring, she had to get an IV.. her veins kept blowing the iv out so they had to do it about 6 times. I've had IV's and i thought it was fucking painful. Needless to say, i felt gutted, and apparently the nurse administering the IV did too, because she came back with this huge white teddy bear with a big bow and pom poms hanging off the ends. I tried to lighten the mood a bit i said "hey rowan, you should totally name your bear JINGLE BALLS!!" i thought it was funny at the time but i was pretty out of it. She gave me a dirty look and told me she would not call her teddy jingle balls. Well of course i refered to the bear as jingle balls the whole time she was in the hospital, and when she got home, the bear got phased out with some other toys not to be seen for a long time.
Well tonight when i put her to bed she announced that she found JINGLEBALLS and she's going to sleep with him every night now and it's ok for me to call him jingleballs now because it's a good name for him and his balls really do jingle..
cor version: at the time it sounds funny to hear your kid say inappropriate things but in the end it sounds wrong and you will probably regret it.
That's pretty cool.
