Magic Boobies...

...I can only imagine the hits that those two words will get.

So the twins are turning five in less than a week now. And recently they have been quite enamored with how tiny they were and the fact that they were in the hospital for months on end. We were cuddling the other day when we had another of these conversations...

Griffin: So we were in the hospital for a long time when we were born, right, Mommy?

Me: Yes.

Griffin: What all did they do to us?

Me: Well, they poked your skin with a needle so that they could give you medicine...(showing on Erin's leg where her pic-line was)...and they put tubes down into your tummy so that you could get mommy's milk.

Griffin: Mommy, how did the milk get in your boobies?

Me: (not wanting to attempt to explain the process of making milk and mammory glands)'s just there. It's something a mommy's body does.

Griffin: like magic?

Me: Like magic.

Griffin: Magic boobies? I'm going to make milk for my babies when I grow up.

Me: Only girlies can make milk for their babies, bud.

Awwwww how utterly hillarious and totally sweet!

It would have been nice if the milk got out of the boobies by magic and not by the horendous pump!

I wrote earlier that Seth is absolutely fascinated by Breasts. He puts stuff in his shirt to make boobies, and wishes I let him watch other babies get breast fed. If you don't watch him, he'll try to peek down your shirt or cop a feel. I need to just buy him a hooker so he can get a good look and feel and be done with it. Once he is a teenager, I bet he'll be hell on wheels with his girlfriends.

I just read what Judy said about Seth and that is so FUNNY! Remember hearing about the movie "Milk Money"....young boys saved their milk money, went to the city, to buy a look of a "lady in waiting" boobs. They were so in awe! LOL!

Boys are so weird...haha!
