Blood Lines

It was sometime last week...

Lucy was getting out of the bath, and she asked what the purple and blue lines were in her skin. I told her that they are veins that carry our blood all over our bodies to keep us healthy and alive. She then asked if there was blood in her tummy, her head, and her eyes, at which I said yes to all of them.


She then reached down to her naked girly bits, and asked if she will have blood there, too, like me!!!

I about died! I told her that she will someday have blood there like me...when she grows up. She said, "Okay, Mommy," and we moved on with our day.

I never imagined I'd be having "the talk" (or forms of it) as early as two and a half years old, but such is life. She definitely keeps me on my toes, and is so incredibly observant. She's one smart cookie, and I hope she keeps asking questions!


  1. actually she is brilliant. wow. so observant.

  2. LOL!!! oh wow...what a smarty pants :D

  3. Hi - I just ran across your blog. We are hoping to take our little girl Tula home next Friday from the NICU. She was born with an atreasia and meconium ileus. We have been in the hospital since 6/28/10. She has CF, the same mutation that Lucy has. Thanks for the blog....We lived in Davis,CA in 2008 and worked in Woodland but now live in IA.


All your comments are appreciated! I'd love to hear from you...
