Good grief! Who know providing nipples for a little fluttering blob could wear a girl out??? Certainly not me. But, according to my little pregnancy book, that was one of the major (albeit random) body parts to have been created this past week.
The genitals aren’t even fully formed yet.
But, my baby has nipples.
I guess that explains why boys have them. . . nipples just come first.
My husband (because, remember, he’s really a 12 year old boy) just LOVED this fact. Everyone learned, from him, that I had given our baby nipples.
Of course, this knowledge is good ammo for future use; well, good ammo if I end up with a boy. It would seem a little awkward having the following scenario with a girl.
Just imagine it — my 13, 14, or 15 year old son back-talking me in front of his friends.
Mean Old Mom: “Excuse me?????”
Immature, Rude Boy: “Mumble, mumble, mumble.”
Mean Old Mom: “Do you know what I WENT through to bring you into this world? Heck, making your nipples alone had me passed out on the couch for nearly a WEEK! You’d better straighten up or I’ll talk about what else was hard to make with you!”
I can’t wait.
Not that my son is going to ever be rude to his Mama. Not my son.
