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.


What The Crud?

It occurred to me today, while feeding Ava in the backseat of my mom's car, that my mother can't stop staring at my boobs when Ava eats! I'm sitting there, whipping one out, and I catch a glimpse of her oogling at me. Please understand, my mom is as prude as they come, and this is such atypical behavior for her that it all becomes even stranger than if she was just one of the "girls" and was curious about how it all worked.

To top that off, my dad looks everywhere BUT my ninnies when I feed Ava... to the point that it's obvious he's a little uncomfortable with this. That actually cracks me up so much that I end up hoping he wanders by just so I can see him squirm a little!

I suppose this is just proof of how different and excentric my 'rents are!

Sigh-- Today is mom's birthday! I got her a sweater, a scarf, and took her to lunch today. Which brings us back to me feeding Ava in the back of her car. She was adamant that I feed her BEFORE we went inside, so "Ava wouldn't cry in the restaurant". Or could it be so she didn't have to share the view with anyone? Eww- That's weird, even for my twisted brain.

I'm totally pro-restaurant bf-ing... and if someone doesn't like it, they can take their food to the restroom! Now granted, if I was in a swanky place with 4,000 watching I might be inclined to pump and give her a bottle as opposed to whipping one out in front of God and everybody. And, in reality, I usually do pump- but just so I can eat too! Plus there's the "let down" issue- when my milk "lets down" I have a grand opportunity to share a little milk with everyone within 3 feet of us! So why my mother had probs with me feeding her at the table (after she has already gawked at me-ahhh!) I may never know.

Tonite is Mexican food nite again! The place we ate at the other nite- El Jinete- ROCKED! The style of food reminded me of our cruise to Cozumel. The Margarita was wonderful, although I might go for something sweeter tonite. Plus, Berrymom got me to thinking about a cranberry margarita (thanks!) so I may ask for one of those. I know, I sound like such a lush- but the only drinks I have I report here- haha!

Hey, are cranberry margaritas considered Thanksgiving fare? If they are, that's what my contribution to the family Thanksgiving gathering will be this year. We might all enjoy each other if there is tequila involved!

And a moment to gloat- I will have the youngest baby at the holiday gatherings this year, for both sides of the "fam-damily". Nanny-nanny-boo-boo! We worked hard for that honor, and I'd have another one to defend it! (Well, it sounds good anyway.)
