Nieces, Bellybuttons, and Rings…Oh My!

Big EyesI babysat my niece recently.  Being only 2.5 years old, she doesn’t fully understand the concept of privacy.  So, even when I went in the bathroom, she was quick to follow. 

I was changing out of my pajamas when she barged in the room.  Her eyes got huge. 

“Aunt Serena, what’s on your tummy?”  I glanced down, fully expecting to find some fuzz.  Instead, I saw her pointing at my belly button ring. 

“Um… you know how we have earrings for our ears?  Well, this is a ring for my bellybutton,” I tried to explain.

“Can I touch it?”  she asked as she hesitantly extended her pointer finger.

She quickly became fascinated.  After a few moments of studying it, she looked up and very matter-of-factly said, “I want one.”

“Ask your Mommy in about 18 years,” I said, trying to contain my laughter. 🙂

  1. Oh, so that’s what she was talking about when she said she wanted her tummy to be like Aunt Serena’s. *sigh*

  2. hahaha…
    When two of my sisters and I got our matching tattoos, our other sister (and maybe our brother too; I can’t remember) drew all over her leg because she said “I’m a sister too”. She was about 5 or 6, I think.

  3. LOL…yes, that’s what Anna was referring to. 🙂

    Kelly, what is your tattoo?
