No Milk

10.03.08-71

We've had a rough week. Monday was probably the worst, and Sophie's temperament most likely was due to a few late nights in a row coupled with no nap on Sunday with a sprinkle of never- sleeping-past-7:30AM-no-matter-what on top. She also spilled an entire tube of red glitter on the table and got a vitamin stuck up her nose. But those things seemed pretty uneventful in comparison.

Again, I'm thankful for her keen observations and commentary on life (and conversations like this) to make me smile amidst the hair-pulling. (My own.)

As I was getting dressed one morning . . .

Sophie: (pointing at my "girls") Any milk in those?

Me: Nope, not anymore.

Sophie: Did Ivy drink it all?

Me: Yep, she did.

Sophie: So there's no more left?

Me: Nope.

Sophie: Until the new baby comes, huh.

Me: Ya, sometime.

Sophie: But not today.

Me: No, not today.

Thinking: Not for a V-E-R-Y long time.

P.S. I'm not pregnant.
P.P.S. I really miss those girls.

It's kind of funny how they never forget the milk thing. Merrick hasn't nursed in over a year and a half, which means that's the last time Amelia saw him getting any milk and out of the blue the other day she points at my chest and says "there used to be milk in there, right Momma?" and then "Merrick used to drink it". I'm just glad he isn't still looking for the milk...well except in the fridge!

I miss my "girls", too. I only have a bust of any kind at the peak of nursing. (Which, sadly, is also at the peak of engorgement.) So sad. Is that too much info? I'm sure you were dying to know!

Your "P.S." made me laugh, too. So funny, and yet appropriate, that you'd have to mention that (because if you didn't at least half your readers would be wondering...). :)

Haha. You both make me laugh. I'm glad there's someone else in my shoes. I miss mine as soon as my baby is about 6 weeks.....
Shucks.

Chelsea said...

So hilarious. Nursing brings out some many interesting conversations! I'm glad they're getting better for your sake.

I knew she was up to no good when she took the vitamin from the table and quietly went upstairs...
