We were sitting on the beach on Tuesday, soaking up the sun and sea air, when it was time to give Caris her milk. So I started getting her formula ready.
Alex: “What are you doing Mommy?”
Me: “Making milk for Caris, my love”
Me: “‘Cos she’s hungry and thirsty”
Me: “Because she has been sleeping, and it’s hot, and it is time for her milk now” (trying to cover all angles here…)
Me: (only two “why’s” !)
I proceed to give Caris her bottle.
Alex: “Mommy …”
Me: “Yes my boy?”
Alex: “Why is Caris drinking from a bottle and not from your nipple?”
My mother in law just about wet herself laughing!
