I just got back a couple of days ago from visiting my mother and sister in California. One night, as I was bathing Lil' Schmoo in preparation for bedtime, I overheard the following exchange.
SchmoopyBoy: Auntie, I want you to brush my teeth.
Auntie: (something about showing her what a big boy he is and brushing his own teeth…blah blah...)
SchmoopyBoy: You have really big boobies.
Auntie: Yes, I do. Thank you for noticing.
Husband: (turning red, muttering) I think I'll leave the room now.
Auntie: (to SchmoopyBoy) When you get older if I'm still single you can tell your friends that.
So the other night after dinner I bring it up and start to explain how that sort of interaction isn't polite. The husband tried to help make the point, and then things just got weird.
Me: You can get away with that now because you are four, but as you get older it will be considered 'bad form' to make comments about the size of a woman's boobies.
Husband: Really, you shouldn't make comments about any part of a woman's body. You can't just walk up to someone and say 'You have a nose like a casaba melon!' or you'll be in a world of hurt.
Seriously, where do I find these people?
