"Oh Absolutely Not!"
I can't help but wonder how quickly my daughter has become so mature with her language skills. She is one smart little girl.
Tonight as I was tucking Jackie into bed, I pulled up her blanket and lightly patted her on her chest and as I turned around to leave her room, she immediately commented that I touched her bra. Bra?! Haha. Since Jackie will be 8 eight years old next week and she has been talking a lot lately about being a doctor, I seized upon the opportunity to teach her proper terminology. So I explained to her that she doesn't have a bra; she has breasts. Jackie then giggled and said "Well, your bra grows." Gee, thanks kid.
So I asked Jackie if she wanted her breasts to grow so she could wear a bra, too, and she immediately responded with "Oh, absolutely not!". Absolutely?! I nearly rolled over with laughter. However, that is a huge difference from 3 years ago when Jackie was 4 years old. One morning, Jackie walked in on me as I was getting dressed. She came over to me, pointed up to my chest and said, "I can't wait to get bigger so I can get bigger ones of those so I can feed my baby!" I will never forget trying to stifle the laughter from that one. She was very succinct about it. Ah! Such precious memories.
Speaking of which, I received news today that our health insurance has approved breast reduction surgery for me. I'm a bit nervous about it but I know I will feel so much more comfortable if I have this surgery done. I did pray that if this was the right thing for me to do, then the insurance would cover it. I feel very comfortable with the doctor who will perform the surgery. I am also looking forward to being able to buy bras at a regular store as opposed to a specialty bra store. So pray that I will not be anxious about the surgery.
