The ChickieNob on Adoption

Whoa...I just logged into blogger and...is it just me? The new layout for the dashboard? I'm so thrown off.

I almost forgot what I came on here to write.

I was closing the book, A Mother for Choco, when I asked the ChickieNob, "do you remember what that's called? When the baby doesn't grow in the mommy's tummy and instead she brings the baby into her heart but it grows in another mommy's belly?"

"It's called breastfeeding," the ChickieNob says confidently.

"No...it's called something else."

"Oh, I know," she says brightly, equally confident in her next answer. "It's called apple pie."

*******
I finished editing the adoption chapter tonight which is why I thought of that exchange from a few days ago.

These new blogger features are really throwing me for a loop...

I'm voting for Apple Pie as an overall reform!!! That's priceless!

Oh honey I know!

I signed in and started going "Ack! Ack! Ack!" just like Bill the Cat, I was so disoriented! I am completely dizzy and loopy now . . . oh wait, that's probably all the painkiller I am taking.

Anywho . . . I would say, Apple Pie A La Mode and you got a deal!

Anything is great warm with a little vanilla ice cream on top, make it a lot, all good,

Breastfeeding (chuckles)

That's priceless - what a cutie!

I like that in ChickieNob's world I can truthfully say that I breastfed both of my children. :)

It's her confidence that makes the answers so amusing. Hee.

No wonder I flunked Breastfeeding...I had it completely wrong!

Jen said...

She is darling! We'll have to immediately change the A in ALI to apple pie. I wish everyone could be like her.

New blogger is throwing me for a loop too. Glad to see I'm not alone.

Jess said...

Apple pie works for me!

luna said...

mmm, apple pie and breast milk.

am I the only one who thinks it's hilarious that your 4 yr old knows the word "breastfeeding"?

annacyclopedia said...

I'm so crazy for the ChickieNob. Can I join her fan club?

luna said...

I meant to say hurray to you for finishing your chapter on adoption! we finished our home study paperwork today too (except the references, but those are out of our hands). yay us!

Somewhat Ordinary said...

I love it! I mean who doesn't love apple pie?

Your little one must be hungry!

LJ said...

I miss my little ChickieNob and her pearls of wisdom. It's true, it's as American as apple pie...and that new baby smell...

Shelli said...

Yeah, the blogger thing threw me this morning. First I thought it was the hormones, but now that I read your post, I know it's just not me!

Piccinigirl said...

ChickieNob is awesome!!

I think that adoption is as sweet as Apple Pie so she is right on the money.

I am adding that to the list of reasons I really, really want to be a mother!!
