My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


BF Milestone!

Drumroll please.....!

Tomorrow is 8 (calendar) weeks for us, and it's flown by! Of course, Ava is a natural... Anything vaguely nipple sized is considered food. And the only "nipple confusion" she has is deciding which side she likes best! Hurray for Ava (and me!).

So this accomplishment has lifted my "PPD" (perpetually pissy days?) somewhat. I'm still dancing the mood swing. I went for some good, old fashioned retail therapy today too. That never hurts. I've been making up new things that PPD can stand for too, like:

*Perpetually Pissy Days
*Positively Perplexing Demeanor
*Pissy Pissy Doo-doo
*Pink Possum Dance
*Particular preppie Dress
*Pretencious Potbelly Diva
Ok, so I can see the light at the end of this tunnel. I'm hoping the blahs will be short-lived. I'm trying to get outside more- sunshine IS good, little vampire! I've been trying to eat better too. Not sure if that is really helping, but it's a mission, and a mission will keep me occupied. Idle hands do the devil's work, and idle minds will have you become the devil! And just because I have a witchy name doesn't mean I wanna be a witch to all I meet!
Off to diaper duty!

A, Congrats on the milestone lady - You are my Hero! Since the moment I "met" you on our NW site...I have loved your sense of humor. You have a way of just making me laugh. I love the Names you have creatively organized! Sounds like little Ava could win the Latch-On baby of the century Award...ever thing about becoming a Lactation Consultant & help other new Mommies learn how to BF better? Sounds like you have got it down to a science. Since BF is VERY important to me when I am able to get PG...I love meeting folks that have terrific insight. Rock-On Milk-Maid and Shop-On!

Nothing beats retail therapy, except a margarita of course! Glad to hear the funky days are about over. I remember them well and I'm hoping to avoid them this time around, but given our climate, outdoors is hard to do until about March. Hooray for the boob sucking vampire!
