I bought 3rd born, aged 10, some little tankinis – she has no boobs yet but just needed something to cover her top half.
The following day I noticed that her boobs had grown over night! She was showing a rather impressive chest under her t-shirt – so impressive infact, she was rivalling my chest – not difficult to do, I know, but it’s taken me many a year to grow these babies, they didn’t appear overnight!
I didn’t comment I just glanced furtively every now and again. I had a suspicion they were stuffed boobs. It didn’t take 4th born long to whisper to me that her sister had stuffed tissue in her tankini 😄
Now this needed delicate handling. I didn’t want to embarrass her but needed to ensure she didn’t leave the house like this. If her sister noticed the stuffed tissue it wouldn’t take long for others to notice – and I didn’t want her to be teased for it.
As I tucked her into bed I said to her
“don’t stuff your tankini with tissue – it will stop your real boobies from growing”
She looked at me and starting laughing
“I’m serious” I replied “I used to do this all the time when I was your age – that’s why mine didn’t grow!” 😳
She looked down at my chest, with sympathy in her eyes – and promptly removed the remnants of nearly a whole loo roll ……………….. 😄
