Why we have boobs...


I have always had quite a hangup about never really getting the full experience of being an exclusive breastfeeding mama...M was on IV's the first week of life and never would latch and I didn't ever produce much with all the stress we were going through & with B, I was able to for 4 weeks, but it wasn't exclusively because, Lord Almighty, I couldn't keep up with that little piggy & I just wasn't producing. After 1 month, I gave up. Of course, I was happy about it then but I regret it now. Like most mom's say, right?

Well, I've not really ever, OK, I've never talked about breastfeeding to my newly turned 3 year old, nor has she really seen it or been around it - ever. Not that it's been on purpose, it's just never presented itself. Trust me when I say - I'm totally for breastfeeding and if I ever choose to add to my brood - I will attempt again and I hope it's completely exclusive! Anyways... last night, I was going through my Instagram feed and she was cozying up with mama and wanted to look at it with me, so I let her...and well, she saw a picture very similar to this:

And I kid you not, without me saying anything, or thinking anything about it, her exact words were, 
"That baby is eat'en from his mama's boobie", very matter of fact-like. Well, ok, here's my chance, I thought...
So I said, 
"Yup, that baby is being fed by his mama...that's why mommy's have boobies, so we can feed our babies". She agreed, as if she'd already known this all along. Keep in mind, she's never seen anything to this nature, what so ever. I was so impressed. So, I took it an inch further and said,
"That's why you have boobies, too, McKenna, so you can feed your babies one day!" & I figured that would be it, haha! Yeah...

McKenna said, "No, mommy!! My boobies are too SMALL!!!"

Man, I love this kid. Mr.B. was laying right next to us and he let out a little giggle and said we were just too cute for words. See what I mean...having girls is so much fun. I'd much rather talk about breast feeding and the reason we have boobies as opposed to trying to explain to my son why.... never-mind, you get me, right?

Love & boobers,

Not completely related but this reminds me of something my daughter said to me the other day... I came out of the shower and she tells me, "Mommy, your boobies look like popped balloons" lol.

I've never thought of it like that, I think because I try to block out things like this, I'm so not looking forward to and 'talks' I will have to have with my children, but now that I think about it I think the girl talks will be a bonding moment. Found you through the Mingle, happy to 'meet' you!
