Thing 1 on milk production

I mean, really, there are some things that are just impossible not to blog about, right?

As I was nursing Thing 3 this morning (that's right, she still does not take a bottle or a sippy cup), Thing 1 became interested and oddly intrigued with the process of lactation. It's not like he's never seen me nurse her before, and I nursed Thing 2 for over a year, and had nursed him as well . . . but as the inexplicable mind of a four-year-old works, today was the day that he chose to be perplexed about the whole thing.

"She gets the milk from your boobie, right mommy?"

"Yep, that's right, buddy."

And then, as I sit patiently and wait for what the next question would be, the kid hits me with THIS:

"I get it now, mommy. You have those nipples so you can swish and stir the milk all around and have it ready to go when Leah starts sucking."

Uh, something like that.

You handled it well.
