The Best Christmas Pagent Ever

Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.

Not too long before I was exposing myself to a Korean film crew, I was enjoying conversation at the Mother's Milk Bank of Ohio volunteer holiday party. Along with the ladies from the milk bank and I were a few LLLL, a retired nurse, some LCs and a dad that drives all over the state to pick up milk from drop-off points. During the course fo the conversation, one of the LLLL told a story that she'd read online. It brought down the house.

I would have loved to have shared it, but it was too long to remember.

Thankfully, Micky over at Mocha Milk spotted it as well and posted it on her blog. Since it's already flying all over the web, I'll post it for you here as well. I'll also say that if anyone knows the mom that posted it you might tell her to email me. A story like that is worth a free Lactivist shirt for the little one...I've left her a private message, here's hoping she responds.

Went to Abigail's school Christmas concert (no "proper" Nativity this year Sad ). Each class did a little something followed by a song or 2. Anyway, Ab's class did a Nativity scene, with Ab as Mary ( Grin How proud was I?). A few mins into their bit Ab promptly lifted her dress & shoved baby Jesus up it. The script then wandered away from what they'd learnt & goes as follows....

Joseph: "What are you doing?"
Mary: "I'm feeding our baby"
Shepherd: "Have you got a bottle up there then?"
Mary: "Don't be silly he's having milk from my booby"
Joseph: "That's disgusting"
Mary: "No, that baby milk they have in Tescos is disgusting. My baby's having proper milk"
Shepherd: "What's a booby?"
Mary: "Those sticky out bits ladies have"
Shepherd: "They're not boobies, they're nipples"
Mary: "No they're not, they're boobies"
Joseph: "So why can't Jesus have milk from a bottle then?"
Mary: "Because I haven't got a breast pump with me - you forgot to put it on the donkey"
Shepherd: "Can't you ask the teacher for a bottle to feed Jesus with?"
Mary: "No because this is the best way to feed Jesus. Anyway bottles haven't been invented yet & even if they were I've just had a baby so if you think I'm faffing about round Tescos to buy baby milk when I make proper milk in my boobies you can think again"

From the mouths of babes...especially love tha tlast line. ;)

    Yes, I saw that on one of the blogs on our blogring :) Don't know whether any of the ppl on the ring actually know the poster themselves though, they might do.

    This is just so brilliant! And goes to show how important it is to educate children about breastfeeding!
