Lately it seems all I do is think about milk. and cows. and more milk. That happy cows commercial? What, are California cows on Prozac? What’s the secret to a happy cow?
I can’t answer that one, but the secret to a happy mom, at least these days, is finally coming home to my baby so I can nurse her.
Not because I enjoy nursing (I do!)
But because my ‘milking stations’ (as my cousin once called them) are about to EXPLODE.
I was at a tweetup tonight for Kathy Buckworth’s new book and my boobs were so hard salsa bounced off my shirt.
One woman was telling a birth story and mentioned bellowing. Bellowing. Cows. Milk. Shit, my boobs hurt!
My breast pads were so full I noticed my shirt was dripping. On the table. Milk with that coffee? I tried to be discreet as I wiped off the table…
We took a picture and though I’m sorta smiling what I’m really thinking was Julie please don’t accidentally shove your elbow in my boob!!!!
After attacking my poor baby with a tsunami of milk I’m now left with uneven breasts and a sleeping baby. Is it OK to wake her up so she can nurse on the other side? Of course not!
I’m off to grab a snack (nursing moms are always hungry!) – My right boob will be entering the kitchen a full 5 minutes before the rest of my body but so long as I don’t take any sharp corners I think we’ll be fine.

“It’s not being bossy, it’s parenting!” #somechicatthebar
“Suck it! mom bloggers” – proposed book title for one who shall remain nameless
Winning a $25 Starbucks gift card, a book, a tea set for my daughter, a $25 PC gift card. Total value of winnings $105
*** I should have bought a lottery ticket. At the grocery store to pick up breast pads, I found out they were $6.99 instead of $12 but they scanned at the regular price. The cashier fixed the price, then gave me one of them for free cause it scanned wrong. I paid $7 for $25 worth of breast pads. Also, hubby wasn’t upset that I was really late getting home! ***
Singing an early Happy Birthday to Kathy who celebrates her 39th birthday tomorrow 😉
Great conversation with awesome ‘tweeps’ and meeting new people.
