mortifyingly funny

My child! She never ceases to amaze me. Doing and saying things in places that I rather she wouldn't.

Today we were at the hairdresser. All three girls needed a cut. Long past due since they hadn't had their haircut since the middle of summer.

Boo-boo was done her cut and watching Papaya finish up her cut. Someone said something funny and the hairdresser laughed.

It was a little thready laugh with a slight beat too it

Which Boo-boo immediately echoed by the same "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh"

Which made the hairdresser laugh again.
Which made Boo-boo echo again.
Which made others in the hairdresser shop burst into laughter, including her mother.

It was so entirely funny. After I regained my composure I tried to explain that I didn't think she was mocking her, just repeating a new sound. But I quickly felt like I might dig a hole big enough to get into so I stopped.

Mercifully, the next time she laughed, Boo refrained!

Very cute. Sometimes it's scary bringing kids out into public. I remember one time when my daughter was about two, she had a babysitter who had a nose ring. She immediately told the babysitter to "get that ring out of her nose." She wouldn't stop. I was mortified. To this day, we laugh about it. You just never know what's going to come our of their mouths! Your daughter(s) sound cute.

From the mouths of babes...too funny! I loved your response too—so familiar— I so often find myself trying to dig out of that very same hole!
