One boob belongs to my Mama friend's 3-month-old who has the ravenous appetite of a 500-pound man.
The second boob is claimed by my friend's disgruntled 3-year-old who walks up to it every morning, gives it a frustrated squeeze and pleads with her, “NURSE?” He laments in the corner with his blocks and street gang of imaginary friends of the good old days when both boobs belonged to him.
Every morning seems to be the same as of late.
This tired Mama attempts to go to the bathroom, only to have her 3-year-old waddle in and demand a seat on her lap. He proclaims the delicate tinkling of her urine on the porcelain throne sounds much like the “Twinkle Twinkle” song she sings to him every night.
Fast forward to noon and both little ones are asleep. She is in the bathroom, heaving like a cat with a hairball as she’s almost certain the 3-month-old’s projectile poop made its way into her mouth this morning.
With a final swish of Listerine, she take a deep breath, and while utterly thankful for her 2 little humans, our Mama takes note of 2 things:
1. At 35, the most exotic thing she has eaten in years is now fecal matter.
2. Her boobs that once hypnotized her husband into submission could make her a fierce competitor of any local dairy farm.
Mothers. Unparalleled story tellers. Super Human. Self-sacrificing, snot receptacles.
If somehow I could teleport and lift the burden of cursed chores and errands as you creatively and mindfully parent your little ones, I would. Poorly folded laundry? A half-vacuumed living room? Questionable paleo casseroles? Yes, these are among my many talents I would offer you in a heart beat to make life a little easier.
But perhaps this idea may interest you more.
