Wanted: Padded Nursing Bra

Last night at dinner, Mia was discussing her taste in milk. She talked about how much she loves chocolate milk, and that 'regular' milk is "too yucky." She wanted to know what Lauren's preferences were, and the conversation took a turn for the worse.

Mia: "Can Lauren have a drink of my chocolate milk, mama?"

Me: "Umm, no babe, she can't have big girl milk yet, she just gets her milk from mama."

Mia: "She can have your chocolate milk?"

Me: "No, I meant, she's only allowed to have milk from my body."

Mia: "She drinks milk from you...(pointing to my chest) from your little things?"

Me: "Yup. That's right." (Trying not to laugh.) (Or cry.)

We never really talk about breastfeeding, but it's something that's been going on for quite some time now, and Mia just accepts it as a normal part of the day.

But...I wanted to scream, "LITTLE things! LITTLE! Honey, they are at their absolute best right now! When I'm nursing...that's the best I've got! Ya gotta give me more credit than little things."

Don't you love the blunt honesty of kids?

Don't you?


  1. Don't worry there will be lots more of those conversations.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! How'd you find it if you don't mind my asking? Just curious :)I don't mind the random comments! Comments of any kind are always fun! I've been reading through some of your posts and I have to say this one made me laugh right out loud! :)

  3. Hi Amy! I found your blog from a comment you left on someone else's. Maybe Life in the Parsonage? Or Rocks in my Dryer? I can't remember now...sometimes I just start clicking and am led to places I've never heard of before. This was the case today. I love finding new blogs to read, so I'm always scanning comments for one that makes me laugh or smile, and then I'll go check out that commenter's blog. It's a vicious cycle, but fun too! I'm glad you stopped by!


Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
