I think it must have begun a few weeks ago when, for the first time, Ella was curious about Jonas nursing and said she wanted some, to which I had to explain that it’s just for Jonas. (She got mad at me). Since then, Jonas has gotten a kick out of suggesting I nurse others.

As he’s nursing, he’ll say, “nurse Thomas (the train), mommy?” with a sly smile and a twinkle in his eye.

“Nnnooo,” I reply wryly.

“Nurse, Percy?”

“Nnooo, that’s so silly.”

He’ll go back to nursing.

A few moments later, “Mommy, nurse Super Grover.”

Little laughter.

“Nnnooo, only Jonas.”

“Only Jonas?”

“Nurse Lightning (McQueen), Mommy.”

“You’re silly!”
