Breastfeeding Quotes

It’s been a few months since I last nursed The Bear…so I thought the days of funny breastfeeding quotes were over in our house. Apparently not. Here’s a true discussion from today.
Scene: The floor of the boys’ bedroom. I’m changing The Bortski’s diaper. He pats my chest.
Me: “What you up to, babe?”
The Bortski: “Just patting your boobie.”
Me: “How come?”
The Bortski: “I just love boobies.”
Me: “Why?”
The Bortski: “They’re great.”

Some day I’ll be sorry I haven’t kept one of those baby books…you know the record of milestones and funny phrases. Right now I just don’t have the energy to keep up. But if I did…I’d be sure to include this one:
The Bortsky (almost age 3): “Mom, does Sarah have bubbies?” (note: Sarah is the babysitter).
Me: “Yes, all women have bubbies.”
The Bortsky: “Can she feed a baby?”
Me: “Um, no, not right now.”
The Bortsky: “Why?” (standard response)
Me: “Because she’s not a mommy.”
The Bortsky: “Why?”
Me: “Because she isn’t right now. Hey guys, let’s see what’s for dinner.”
The Bortsky: “I’m not hungry.”
