Funny story
 
Jako ze przydarzylo nam sie po angielsku, to Wam po angielsku opisze, bo za duzo mozdzenia z tlumaczeniem ;)

So we were at the Zimfest yesterday. I sat down to breastfeed Mimi and a little girl (my guess would be around 4, maybe 5?) came to us.
Chichi (that's the girls name): hey, is this your baby?
Me: yes.
Chichi: is it a boy or a girl?
Me: a girl.
Chichi: can I stroke her?
Me: sure.
(she strokes Mimi with her finger wet with saliva and with popcorn all over it - note to myself: check kids' hands next time I agree they touch Mia ;)).
Chichi: why is she doing this to you?
(obviously refering to breastfeeding)
Me: she is drinking her milk.
Chichi: oh. Milk is white, that's what babies drink. Is it why she is so white?
Me: no, she is white, because I am white.
Chichi: Did you come to the festival?
Me: yes.
Chichi: but it's for black people?
Me:...
Chichi: So why is she having one of those? (pointing at my breast)
Me: she is having her milk.
Chichi: so do you get this milk from home?
Me: no, it comes from my breasts
Chichi: it comes from your what?
Me (thinking it might be too much detail for a kid this age?): from my breasts.
Chichi: it comes from your breasts?
Me: yes.
Chichi: oh, ok. See you later then.

This was very bizarre, yet funny and on some level sad experience - it's not the first time I come across a kid who doesn't know babies are breastfed - I wonder if it is an age thing or they just see them being bottle fed all the time?

It happens sometimes. I learnt to wear something under my t-shirt, so my breast is hardly visible to others, but for example when Tata (Mimi's sister) was here just after Mia was born, she actually looked up close at my breast - it was at the very beginning, so I felt very uncomfortable.
Now I am ok - both with kids asking questions, wanting to touch Mia, etc and with breastfeeding and explaining how it works.
I even had to explain to one of my adult friends (who hasn't got kids) how it feels to breastfeed - also at the very beginning, so made me quite uncomfortable too.

nam zdarzylo sie cos bardzo podobnego.
chyba o tym pisalam.

na placu zabaw przyszla do nas Georgia jak akurat Filip zazadal mleka i pyta:
-co robi Filippako?
-pije mleko.
-masz tam schowana butelke?
-nie. pije z piersi. (po grecku mowi sie thilazi, a thilastika to sa ssaki, thili to sutek)
Gogo troche zbita z tropu pyta po chwili:
- to znaczy w innych krajach dzieci pija mleko z piersi?

Gogo ma 6lat. Myslalam ze ona zapyta cos w stylu: to znaczy tak jak jagniatka i cielaczki. ale ona wygladala jakby myslala, ze ja bajeruje.


a niedawno mial miejsce ciag dalszy. znow spotkalismy na placy zabaw Georgie i slysze jak mowi na ucho do kolezanki
-a wiesz skad Filip pije mleko? z cycusia mamy.


hahaha

Jak byla u nas Tata, zaraz po urodzeniu Mii, to ja to strasznie bawilo, ze Mia pije z piersi i nie chciala uwierzyc, ze tylko tyle jej wystarcza. Pewnego dnia Mii odbilo sie ziemia - podejrzewam, ze ma to cos wspolnego z Tata i doniczka, ktora u nas wtedy stala ;)

A wiecie czemu Mia jeszcze nie mowi wedlug Tafadzwy? Bo nie ma zebow ;)

Maybe it's not a funny story, but definitely the best divorce letter ever :)
