Working things through in her head

Saturday, November 18th, 2006

One day when Aunt Karin and Grandma Joyce were visiting, Aunt Karin took Reid to her room for a nap. When Aunt Karin took off her sweatshirt, Reid pointed to Karin’s chest and said, “What zat”.  Karin is straight-forward and so said, “Breast”. In a puzzled and unsure voice, she asked, “Nuk breast?” and Karin had to tell her, “No.” Reid responded confidently, “Mama nuk breast” and climbed into bed for her nap. Since then, Reid and I have discussed that Aunt Karin had milk when her kids were young and that Mama’s have milk when they have babies and then the milk goes away when the kids grow up. I’m not sure what she made of it but little bits of truth will accumulate, I figure.
