A Guide to the Key Players of Mama Knows Breast

Bookmark and Share

Here’s a list of the players, the people you’ll meet on Mama Knows Breast:
Mama: That’s me. A 37 year old mother of two boys under two. As of May 1, 2006, one was 19 months, the other was six weeks. Do I need to say any more?
Da-Da: Obviously, of course, this is Mama’s husband. To get the best sense of this name, envision a 19 month old, begging to be let out of his room, at 6 in the morning, plaintively repeating, “Da-Da, please help. Ehh you, Da-da, please help.” He knows Da-Da is more likely to come to the rescue at this hour.
Bortski: That’s the 19 month old. We came up with his nickname one day when he had a little cold. He was making all sorts of snorting noises through his stuffed nose. He thus became “Snortsky.” Over time, this evolved to “Bortski.” I’m not really sure why.
The Titty Bear: This is our newborn.
Nana Funny Socks: This is Mama’s mama. Bortski started to call her Nana Funny Socks after observing her stocking knee-highs. Quite glamorous, I’m sure he thought.
Big: This is Mama’s mama’s mama. In other words, Mama’s grandmother. Or in other words, Nana Funny Socks’ mama. Bortski gave her the nickname. She was the “big” nana, ie. the older nana. For a while she was Nana Big, then just “Big.” Sort of like a rapper.
Papa Peekaboo: Da-Da’s dada. He likes to play peekaboo. He’s a newlywed, often seen hanging out with “Toto.” Again, Bortski created nicknames.
Papa Harry: Mama’s dada. He goes with his wife Carol and their cat Mimi.
Uncle Scott (“Hey Dude”) and Auntie Erica (“Ca-Ca”): Mama’s brother and sister in law.
Uncle Spaulding (“Spa-ba”) and Aunti Gayle (“Ga-Ga”): Da-da’s brother and sister in law.

With these players on the team, I’m sure to root for the home team!
For all of you readers, the most ironic part about “Big” — or as Bortski’s cousin calls her “Big Nana” — is that she is a teeny, tiny, little lady!
I can’t wait to follow the adventures on Mama Knows Breast.
