It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Rumours of Glory

I lift the child from her father’s arms and shift her onto my hip. As she passes between us, her small hand grabs at the collar of my t-shirt and her weight shifts its fabric across my stomach. Dad gets a sudden and generous glimpse of my left breast (encased within a rather pretty bra) before I immediately and casually shift the child, her hand, and my shirt back to appropriate placement.

Dad and I both pretend a) nothing happened and b) we didn’t see him take a very quick look. We’ll let him consider it a perk of daycare…

  1. Imagine having that knee-jerk reaction to breasts every. single. time. Must get boring. Or maybe not. Poor sods.

    πŸ˜€ I don’t think they find it boring…

  2. What? I’d look, too! πŸ˜€

    If only to check out the bra!

  3. How do you NOT look?

    Well, there’s that, too. Like the guy on the bus with half his hairy butt sticking out from his jeans. You don’t want to look, at all, and yet you do. Sometimes more than once. Though I suspect this dad would not put those two items in the same category.

  4. I’m glad your bra was pretty!

    They all are, Laura. I’m picky that way. No ugly bras allowed. πŸ™‚

  5. Entirely appropriate reactions. I mean, what would it say about him if he hadn’t noticed or glanced?

    But, heh.

  6. LOL. Poor guys. I’m admittedly facinated by breasts (comes from the manymanyMANY years of not having much to look at–thank goodness for pregnancy and nursing, lol), though not as much as my husband. πŸ™‚

  8. I’ve often said that I lost any and all sense of modesty after having my first two children. (They were both born in a teaching hospital so there were PLENTY of residents coming in and out of the room during the whole thing. That would have been enough but my husband was also a resident at the time so all of his pals (Ear, Nose and Throat guys–complete opposite end of the body) kept stopping by, too!
    I no longer get embarrassed, especially with kids around but maybe that is because not all of mine are pretty. Is that because I don’t run a daycare or because I need to go shopping? πŸ˜‰

  9. I’m a mummy and I would have looked, though only in surprise. I guess if it wasn’t a lingering glance it’s k.

    But then I’m not the exposed nanny.

    My first time here and I’m throughly entertained.
