Tonight while we were playing before bedtime, Marta picked up a naked Barbie and pointed to her chest. "She has nurse," she said.

Marta weaned from nursing at about 19 months old -- that's eight months ago. We haven't brought it up since, except to mention "nurse" twice soon after she gave it up.

So I said, "WHAT?"

"She has nurse. Here." She pointed.

"She has breasts," I said.

"I eat Mama's breasts."

"Um. You drank milk out of Mama's breasts. The milk is gone now."

She was unfazed. She went on playing like nothing happened. I, on the other hand, got a little bit teary, to tell the truth.
