Something

There are three unwritten posts sitting in my post list.
Have I found time to get to them?
No.

So, because this little becoming versed is important to me.
And I need to write something.
And because I think there are a few of you out there reading.
And because it seems there are so many pregnant women and new moms everywhere I look
and I am glad I've been through that phase.
And because this is too funny not to be shared somewhere in the world.
I am going to share a little bit of myself with you.

Well, my old self, because I now know better.
Let's just say this was one of the times where it became very clear to me that
I had a lot more to learn about life.

Before I tell you, you need to know that as a child and young person, I did not spend very much time around babies or mothers and their babies. Especially not around nursing mothers.

Here you have it:

I always wondered how nursing mothers knew whether their baby wanted milk or water.
Because I thought one made milk and one made water.
Then one day I found out I was so very wrong.
Oh, so very wrong. 

And now
you may laugh
at
me.

And I will laugh with you.

  1. What I really want to know, because this information will really determine just how hard I am going to laugh, is how old you were before you found out there was no choice in the matter? :)

  3. My grandma always asserted that one was chocolate and one was strawberry and babies always had a preference. I wondered the same thing. How do you know which is which? And then my mom told me the truth. Just vanilla, out of both. Thanks so much for the laugh of the day!!
