Best Christmas story ever!!

If you haven't seen this, you've been missing out! This adorable and true story comes to us from this blog. Btw, Tesco's is a supermarket chain in Britain.

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"

I felt a teeny bit sorry for their class teacher - she did try her best to steer them back towards their proper lines but she was laughing so much she didn't really stand a chance. The line about Joseph forgetting the breast pump finished her off - she slid to the floor & couldn't get up for laughing....

I spit my drink all over my monitor the first time I read this...guess I should have warned you too!

Look what I found!

While I've been busy setting up shop at the new milkface home, I haven't found must time for cruising the internet. Tonight I'm making up for that and I found this great blog - The bOOb Lady's Blog. I love her take on the whole Victoria's Secret vs Baby Talk things (go on over and scroll down, you'll see what I mean!)

And speaking of the new milkface home, it is coming along SO well. We (and by that I mean the royal we!) have painted, gotten rid of carpet, installed new flooring, set up shelves and storage, knocked down a wall, painted some more and today moved all our stuff in! Yay! Tomorrow will be a big set up day and then we'll be ready for business in our new location. Not to worry for all you customers - we'll still pay just as much attention to you and as an added bonus, our new location means more efficient processes and a faster, better shipping process!

And so it begins...

We've got the keys on the store that we've leased - hooray! That's right, milkface is moving on to be an actual retail location. We've got loads of work to do (and much money to spend!) but we hope to be open by December 15th. I'm really looking forward to moving the business out of my house and having actual hours instead of working by appointment. I'm also very excited about having more space and being able to set up properly. We're also going to have a community space for LLL meetings, prenatal classes, CPR classes, etc, etc!

My husband and my brother have already taken up the carpets in the store and the walls have all been taped for painting. Andy (dh) is there right now putting the primer on the walls. Painting commences tomorrow - now I just have to decide what colour! We've got started on the sign and have bought most display/storage stuff that we need.'s going to be a busy week!

Nursing gives you superpowers!
