The Process

Seren and I were doing the bedtime ritual two nights ago and she turns to me and says, "I'm not so sure I want to go through with the whole process."

What process?

"You know, the process of motherhood. It is kinda gross. I mean like when I was swimming around in your belly, I was probably looking up at your esophagus! That's gross."

--silence from me--

"And like then I had to come out your vagina! That is totally gross."

Ok, well parts of it are kinda gross. But you don't really have to decide now about being a mom.  Right?

"Right. But you know what else I was thinking? I was thinking about how weird it would be if I still nursed from you. And you still nursed from Grammy and Daddy still nursed from Grandma! I mean, poor DAD!! He would be SO dehydrated!"

--stunned look of 'what the hell are we talking about?' from me

"Mom! Grandma lives in Michigan! He would never get any milk! He would be SO dehydrated."

Oh, ok. Totally right. And yes, that would be TOTALLY weird.
