A conversation last night:
Boo: Mommy, can I look at a part of your body?
Me: Depends which part.
Boo: Your boobies.
Me: I just don’t feel like showing you my boobs right now. If you’re lucky, maybe I’ll change clothes in the next 24 hours.
Boo: (pokes my bra) It’s empty.
Boo: When I get older I get a bar, right?
Me: A bra.
Boo: Want to see my booty?
Me: No….and just FYI…..we don’t go around showing people our booties.
(…..except if you post pics on your blog after surgery….maybe she won’t see those….)
Speaking of surgery……there was an email conversation going around in my inbox today about plastic surgery (in general). After 45 emails hit my inbox with everyone giving their opinion, it made me think for a moment:
1. I really don’t have an opinion about anyone else getting plastic surgery.
2. I’d get boobs in a millisecond if I could 100% be sure the result wouldn’t be “Ashley survives cancer only to die under anesthesia for a boob job.”
3. If the headline on a tabloid is “plastic surgery: what were they thinking?”…..I’ll buy it.
I saw Dr. L yesterday (oncologist….not plastic surgeon). After a little negotiation he agreed I could start coming every two weeks for blood tests instead of once a week. Yay.
Okay……I’ve got to cut this post short…..watching Deadliest Catch and someone just went overboard…..

Love me some Lil’ Blue BooTY!
Kelli Waterman says
So cute!! Congrats on the wonderful news!! God is GREAT!!
Why did you tell me that? I missed it and our DVR died yesterday!?!?! Now I have to find it.
What is it with kids & wanting to see boobies? My twins are always wanting to see mine! Lol!
Andrea T says
Nice! Kids really are entertaining. I’m sorry that everybody else wants to make your healthcare decisions for you. I’m sure it will all work out.
Oh I should have clarified it was about plastic surgery in general 😉 not for me…..I’ll probably get a few emails about that too haha.
too funny. My girls were always doing that to me…asking me if they can see my boobies. My youngest (who is now 7 yo) used to always grab at them or push up on them (this when she was under the age of 3)and I guess she did it so much that once while in the grocery store, I had a few people staring at me while standing in line waiting to check out… and it made me wonder “what the heck are they looking at? Do I have something on my face? Is my shirt unbuttoned? Is Emily opening candy on the candy aisle? And it dawns on me… Ella , seated in the front kiddie seat with a binky in her mouth ,is not only pushing up on my boobs, bouncing them in her little hand, but she has her feet underneath the bottom of my shirt and thus my shirt is halfway up. LOL (Now after having all the surgeries I have had, I have lost so much feeling in my abdomen that I very rarely feel anything in my abdomen.) Keeping in mind, Im a big girl and both pregnancies covered my abdomen with lots and lots of , what I like to call, my woman scout badges (aka stretch marks…I have so many I look like you could find your way to China sketched out right there on my abdomen, LOL). Anyways, I guess she did that so much that I never even noticed it whether we were in public or not.
I guess boobs are just fascinating to little ones, until they get about 8 then they never want boobs and then they get 14 and wonder when they will ever get them.
Boobs, gotta love them.
On a serious note, Congrats on the recent update with your doc. I pray you continued on a postive track and that your healing continues.
My 4 year old is the same way…..she is always wanting to see mine, then she pokes her own and asks when shes going to get them too. 🙂
Hey your boobies are your business and only your business!
Cute convo, tho! Love it!
haha…my two are always on about my boobies too…my oldest son 6 always wants to lay on them or stick his head in between so he can roll from side to side!!! and i dont think boys ever loose interest in them!!!
great news with your blood tests…still praying…hugs
oh lordy I’m dying. hysterical.
Caroline @ The Feminist Housewife says
Hahaha….I think I would feel the exact same way! Unnecessary surgery scares me. Ick.
that is too funny! My Princess Fiona is “boobie” obsessed! The other day my great aunt was visiting and Princess drew her a happy face. Here’s the eyes, and the happy, and the hair, and the legs and two boobies! I almost died.
Meagan Briggs says
Oh my goshhhhh hilarious conversation. My daughter (2.5yrs) always grabs my cheeks and says, oh they are so chubby! And also about my legs. I think she only does that since I say that to HER all day long because she is so stinking cute. I can’t help but frown though. I was blessed with the face chubs from my dad. Your little sienna is adorable!!!
Christina Bailey says
your blog brightens my day….everyday 🙂
I think all little girls get body obsessed with women when they are about Boo’s age, because it has dawned on them for the first time that you are what they will look like when they are bigger! (I have 4 sisters and a daughter and around 4 they all start to stare really hard when you change in front of them.)
As someone with a large chest on a small body (I’m a 30F) can I just say I know the grass is always greener, but I would take a smaller chest in a heartbeat! (Have even contemplated surgery except we can’t afford it.) Shirts look so much cuter on small chests, you can wear anything low cut and look cute, were as I try to wear the same thing and I look like a porn star, so I never wear anything low cut because I am a mom, not a porn star, and I get to tired of being treated by random men like my value is in my boobs. (My husband is in the Air Force, and while at a military ball, in a dress that had less then 2″ of cleavage, I had a “conversation” with a 3 Star General, that never even pretended to look at my face, maybe an officer, but NOT a Gentleman.)
I have nothing against plastic surgery, I don’t think it’s that different then braces or makeup, but in the boobs department, petite and perky is so much cuter then large and restricting! (Plus I am pretty sure something happens to your brain when you get fake boobs, everyone I know who has them, feels the need to show them to EVERYONE!)
I had a reduction a few years ago and my insurance paid for it entirely. My lower back got sore and back problems are considered a greater risk. I would have a reduction 10 times. It’s painful, but my breasts are perfect now.
There’s a huge difference between makeup, braces, and plastic surgery in terms of risk.
Braces help dental hygiene in that teeth that are too crowded are hard to brush and floss between. Makeup make cause a breakout, but that’s about it. Plastic surgery can cause severe (and fatal reactions): during surgery itself, or years later when your body rejects the breast implants.
There was a fairly young (upper 30s) woman in Brazil who died during a “butt augmentation.” Can you imagine how awful dying for something so silly is for the poor children she left behind? Heartbreaking. Parents having plastic surgery sets a bad example for their kids, with the message being “you’re not good enough as you are, and looks are the most important thing.” Hair and makeup? That enhances you, not changes you. And, hair and makeup? Rarely fatal (I’ve never heard of either being fatal,… )
As a former small chested woman ( they are currently big due to breastfeeding), I have to say that I don’t get the obsession with big boobs. Mine just get in the way and I keep hoping that maybe by some strange stroke of luck that they will go down to their old size when I’m done. If someone wants to have big ones then good for them, they can have mine when I’m done :).
Natasha J says
i just stopped a few months ago and mine went back to my size while i was pregnant….most girls are excited to fit back in their wedding dress. i was excited to fit back into the bra i got married in……so keep hope on the getting smaller 😉
carrie r. says
mine ended up, after weaning, smaller than before i got pregnant. it’s a mystery to me how that happened :).
you two have the cutest conversations! glad you can go to visiting less at the docs!
Great news! Continued prayers.
It would be hard to find a kiddo that didn’t love to talk about or see booty or boobies!
Alice H says
My 2 year old sons new favorite words are boobies, penis, and butt. We go to Target and they have a picture of girls in exercise pants and no shirts on and he will loudly announce “girls no shirts on see boobies”. I keep trying to remind him those are bathroom words. LOL!
Glad you only have to go every other week. And I also do not oppose of plastic surgery. One day my tummy tuck will come!
Boo is so hilarious!!!
Happy for the two weeks goal! 🙂
I TOTALLY want New Boobies!
Been wanting them since Jr.High… sorry Middle School as its called now.
Boo Always makes my day!! haha!
Hysterical! I love the things kids say!
Just found your site today – what an inspiration!! You truly blessed me. I will continue to pray for you:)
Congrats on the newest milestone! Only every other week now, yea!!!!
“I gotta go someone just went overboard,” ahahahaha you are so hilarious! Xoxo
When my cousin was little she asked her mom when my mom was going to be a grown up lady. Her mom told her she is grown up, why do you ask that? She said because she has no boobies! We still laugh about that today. Too bad for me, I didn’t get much in the boob department either. I just wear a padded bra, not to make them big just so I have something haha.
Amy White says
Hey pretty lady. Be careful with putting your name and dob on the Internet – there are a lot of crazies out there. Just a heads up. 🙂
When scheduling a mastectomy after discovering 2 tumors in my breast 2008, my surgeon and I discussed the possibility of a “lift” to my other breast. Once he explained that one risk would be to lose sensation in that breast, knowing that I would never again have a nipple or sensation in my reconstructed breast, I said no way. I couldn’t bear the thought of losing feeling in the other breast all because I wanted to be perkier. To anyone considering breast surgery or bemoaning your small breasts, just remember you can FEEL your breasts and you have response to touch and can be aroused with your breast or even breast feed with your breast. It functions. Cancer can strike at any age and steal that from you, so remember that next time you think about risking it all for perky or bigger. It may not turn out the way you had hoped. I love my droopy, natural breast and as long as she stays cancer free I think I will keep her just the way she is!
