Breasts and Tests


Conversation during breakfast this morning:

Me: Plum, Daddy will be taking you to school this morning because I have to go get something done.

Plum, intrigued: What are you getting done?

Me: I’m getting my mammography done.  Women over the age of forty need to get their yearly mammogram done.

Plum, giggling with this information: MAMA-GRAPHY?  What’s a mama-graphy?  Is it a test to see if you are suitable to be my mama?!

Me, now laughing too: You are close, silly.  It’s called mammography.  It’s a test to see if the breasts are healthy.

Plum, now looking contemplative: Well, that makes sense!  The test is to see if your breasts are healthy in case your child wants some milk!

Considering Plum has been nursed until she was 18 months old, I suppose her assumption of this on demand milk supply is not that outlandish.  But let me assure you kiddo, we can always go to the grocery store when you want some milk these days!
