The New York Post’s Page Six has nothin’ on preschoolers. They’re seriously the biggest gossipmongers on the planet. So as the mom of a kindergartner who still hasn’t learned to self-censor, I wasn’t surprised to read on Hollywood Life that Jessica Alba’s three-year-old Honor Marie may have spilled the gender and name of her sibling-to-be. If Honor’s to be believed -- and that’s a big if there my friends -- the hot mama is all about Eva. Frankly, I’m concerned that Alba’s kid is talking to the photographers at all, let alone discussing family secrets. Sounds like Mommy needs to have that stranger-danger chat stat.
I once made the mistake of telling my daughter that I thought her camp counselor was cute. The very next day, to my husband’s horror, she tried to set us up. (Apparently she thinks we live in Utah.) Turns out I got off easy. Some of my fellow parents shared these priceless reveals made by their progeny.
"I found a sitter online who had all the qualifications I was looking for, but her picture was a bit risqué. As she was leaving the interview, my son gave her a hug, then looked at me and said, 'I don't think she looks like a hooker!'"
"My wife and I used to joke that the body pillow I slept with was my girlfriend. One day my son answered the phone while I was napping, and I picked up the phone in time to hear him tell the caller that, 'Daddy can’t come to the phone right now because he’s sleeping with his girlfriend.' He then hung up before I could say anything, and I never did find out who it was!"
"I run a childcare program so I hear crazy stuff every day. At circle time one day, a little girl decided to share this tidbit: 'Mommy said Daddy has to sleep on the couch till he gets his act together.'"
