I don't even know where to start

except to say that my favorite lines are "I'm not a monkey" and "better than mango". I struggled to wean Joey from breastfeeding, I breast him for far longer than my other two and if I was not me and just listening to me and how long I nursed Joey, I would make fun of myself. And though I think it was a good choice for me, my children and my food budget (formula is pricey!), I must say, but this is a whole different level of being a breast supporter.

You know, this isn't that shocking to me at all. Virtually every word that mother used to describe how her girls felt about nursing, I have used to describe how my husband feels about my breasts.

"Better than a mango", "sweet", he has names for them, he draws pictures of my nipples, doesn't care that they're saggy and worn out, gets all of his comfort from them, and he thinks me sacrificing a few short years of my life to give him pleasure and comfort is the least I can do for him.

It's touching that 7 and 9 year-olds and grown men everywhere can come together on such a topic.
