DD is 3 and a half. Completely out of the blue she just said to me in that very earnest way kids say things "Daddy has a big tummy". I'm dying of laughter on the inside and manage to respond with "well ... yes he does but lets not say that to him because it might be a bit hurtful". She comes back with "yeah he ate too much ice cream". Cue more internal laughter from me :laugh: .

I really, really want to tell DH. It's bloody funny but I think it would hurt his feelings a little. She's right, he is working on a fairly solid beer belly and despite my DH being a fairly self-deprecating sort he can be oddly touchy about his tummy.

If she'd have said it about me I still would have thought it was funny and probably would have texted him immediately but I think I'll keep this one to myself (and you lot obvs!).

Kids can be so funny (and painfully honest!).

When I was pregnant with my DS my other DS said "look at Daddys huuuuuggggeeeee belly, I think he has a baby in his belly too!!"

Tonight my 3.5 year old touched my spotted tshirt and said @that really suits you, mummy”. He’s never said that before!!. I said “thank you darling “ to which he replied earnestly “it’s because it matches your face” accompanied by a sweet smile. I have some bad pimples at the moment. Awesome.

He’s a very kind child but sometimes he really misses the mark!!

I love 3yo's!

Last week mine stroked my arms and said "I love the fur under your arms Mummy! It keeps you so snuggly and warm!"

When my friend was pregnant with her third, she explained to her old kids that she had a big tummy because there was a baby growing in there. Her son then asked

"So why do you have a big butt?"

Haha kids are gorgeous, my DD and I were in the pool , when she was around 3, and she looked up at me and in absolutely awe, said 'Oh mummy, your moustache is beautiful!' Then "oh Mummy will I have a golden moustache, when I am a big girl!'  It was the sun, and it wasn't noticeable but I got it waxed  that week LOL.

DD1 once said to DH "I love your big belly, Daddy, it's just like Santa's."  :laugh: He was mortified!

Kids are awesome like that.

Except when they say, quite clearly, 'Mummy that man has a baby in his tummy!' and point at the unsuspecting victim in the supermarket queue.

DS (3years) went up to a random lady in the store once, pointed at her belly and asked if there's a baby in it. She told him no and he went 'why is your belly so big then? My mummy's belly was big when there was a baby in it!'
She ran.. not sure who was more embarrassed, her or me.

OP has your DD been watching Peppa Pig? There was an episode where Peppa use the phrase"Daddy's Big Tummy!" as the password to her treehouse (?IIRC). And there was a couple more episodes I think where daddy pig got fat-shamed.

I have not watched said episode but heard the kids use it once and was told it was a magic phrase from Peppa Pig.

My son tells me my feet are dirty.

No, they're just dry and cracked from two years of parenthood-induced neglect. So it's basically his fault they look like that!

He also pretends to shave my legs on a regular basis. It's vaguely insulting. :p

My DS was listening to my tummy with his stethoscope, I asked him what he heard and he replied ‘whale’. I’m pregnant and slightly bigger but certainly not whale sized!

Haha! When I was pregnant with DD my DS had a phase where he would assign animals to family members. After a few times it was pretty obvious that DH and DS were always monkeys, zebras, giraffes, snakes,.. and I got hippo, elephant, whale or pig 😂
