Versatile Armpits and Other Colloquialisms

While changing for bed one night.
Aubrey:   You got BIG armpits!
Me:   [confusedly point to my armpit] I have big armpits?
Aubrey:   No those. [points to my chest]

—————————————————————————————————————————

While at dinner with several family members including my sister-in-law’s little brother Jordan fresh out of Army training.
Aubrey:   You got big armpits.
I giggle thinking she’s telling Jordan he has big boobs that she can see thanks to his ‘stylish’ removal of his t-shirt sleeves.
Jordan:   What Aubrey?
Aubrey:   [points to Jordan’s bicep]
At this point she removes her jacket to show off her own ‘armpits’. When Jordan asks her to flex for him she nonchalantly raises her arm in the classic flexing pose and flips her hair with her hand.
Lord help us.

—————————————————————————————————————————

Following any suggestion Aubrey makes.
Aubrey:   That be idea?

—————————————————————————————————————————

Every weekend morning.
Aubrey:   [whispering] G’morning Mommy.
Me:   [groan and open one eye to see what time it is] G’morning Auby.
Aubrey:   Look! The light is out. [gesturing to the morning sun in the window] That’s why it’s morning time!!

Concerning her hair in various circumstances.

Grandma:   Come on Aubrey, let’s go take a bath.
Aubery:   But I jus tate a bath last night I did.

Arriving home from work.

Chocolate milk vs. Milk.

Me:   Aubrey, you have to have milk to make chocolate milk.

      I marvel daily at her capacity for empathy. She is something else. I got a sunburn the other day and my mom was getting ready to put aloe on my back and not ever having had a sunburn, Aubrey instinctively knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant so she laid down on the bed next to me and said, “You wan hold my hand Mommy? It not donna hurt Mom, it be otay, it not donna hurt.” (Btw, she lied haha)
