The Old Grey Mare, She Ain't What She Used to Be.

The older kids were blowing up some balloons for an experiment we are doing, when the six year old said, "Hey, that looks like a nur-nur!" (Nur-nur being the word in our family for the mammary glands themselves as well as the milk and act of feeding a baby.) At first as the only family member with these particular appendages I might have been almost flattered at the thought of full balloon shaped bosoms, then I looked up and noticed my oldest was blowing up one of those long, skinny balloons. Sigh.


SNORRRRRRRT. I feel your pain.

That just cracks me up. Btw, our littlest one called them 'yummies'. Always flattered me to hear her say that.

"Nur nur?" Ick. Some euphemisms sound more disturbing than the term they aim to euphemize. What's wrong with saying "breast?" It's just another body part such as an arm, a leg or an ear.

That made me laugh way harder than it should have considering once I quit nursing I am likely to resemble that remark.
