Overheard at Snack Time

Mali and I were sitting at our new kitchen table (love it!), working at our separate laptops.  Jane decided that she needed a little something to eat, so Mali started feeding her.  Have I mentioned that at two years and seven months old Jane is still not weaned?  Mali has said she wants to wean Jane, but hasn't brought herself to break that particular tie.

So, we're sitting here, the three of us, and Mali said, "I can't believe I'm nursing Jane."  Slight pause, then Mali said, in one of those voices intended to mimic my deep, manly tones, "But you probably can."

Naturally I replied, "I can."

Just as naturally and without missing a beat, Jane said, "I can."

Hasn't anyone told her it's not polite to talk with your mouth full?


  1. When I had my breast cancer scare (it was nothing after all) last year when Ella was 2 yrs and 2 months, the doctor told me that I'd have to stop before they could get a good mammogram reading. I said, "Well, this morning was the last time." He said, "Sometimes you just need a reason to quit." :-) You two need to go on a weekend retreat sans kids. :-)

  2. Mali went to Hong Kong for four days in March, thought that might do it. Nope. First thing Jane did when she saw Mali was go for a snack.
