I was nursing my 5-month-old son when my 4-year-old stepson, Noah, came into the room. He asked if I was feeding the baby, and when I confirmed that I was, he left the room. A few minutes passed and I started burping the baby. Noah came back, gave me a confused look, and asked, “Is he drinking out of your shoulder?”

For Crying Out Loud

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

I asked my 3-year-old son to watch our 5-week-old baby while I went into the kitchen. While I was gone, the baby started crying. Vincent yelled out, “Mommy, Hayden is crying and I don’t have big boobies!”

Got Milk?

Friday, June 21st, 2013

milkI was explaining to my son that our 6-month-old baby is no longer nursing becaues I ran out of milk supply. My son then told our baby, “That’s not nice! You finished all of Mommy’s milk. Our next baby is going to starve, and it’s all your fault for eating too much.”
