So my adorable niece (who nursed until she was almost 2 years old) was taking a shower with her mom the other day (who is currently nursing my 3 month old nephew).  She looks up at her mom and says,

“”Oh wow mommy, your minnums are so fat.  When I was a kid I usually drank those.”

By the way, she is only 2 1/2 years old now.  As if she isn’t a kid anymore!  Haha!  She seriously cracks me up on a regular basis!  I especially love the use of the word “usually”.  Ahhh, kids….

My grandmother who has access to the Internet at her job (she’s still working full time at 75 years old!!) always fills my Inbox with silly chain emails.  I feel bad not reading them (because she will often ask me about a particular one!) so instead of deleting them, I usually skim them over, just in case I am “quizzed” later!  Yesterday however she sent me a doozy and I wanted to share it with all of you.  A bit of a “mental health break” to start your weekend off right!  Enjoy!


Kids Say The Darndest Things!!


As I was nursing my baby, my cousin’s six-year-old daughter, Krissy, came into the room.  Never having seen anyone breast feed before, she was intrigued and full of all kinds of questions about what I was doing.  After mulling over my answers, she remarked, “My mom has some of those, but I don’t think she knows how to use them.”




 On the way back from a Cub Scout meeting, my grandson asked my son the question. “Dad, I know that babies come from mommies’ tummies, but how do they get there in the first place?” he asked innocently.  After my son hemmed and hawed awhile, my grandson finally spoke up in disgust.  “You don’t have to make something up, Dad.  It’s OK if you don’t know the answer!”



Have a great weekend!
