First let me get the not-so-serious thing off my chest.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?! While completely devoted to my hubbs, why do I want to kiss both of these people on the mouth?
Second thing, I know I’m like the 234,908,346 billionth mom to blog about this today but get over it because I gotsta summin’ to say.
So we were all in the living room at my parents’ house the other night and it was time for Bud to eat. So, I sat in a corner and fed him and draped his burp cloth over me to not show too much. My family asked me how nursing was going and I told them it was going great but I wish that our world didn’t view my boobs as something sexual. First off, they are MINE… so where does society get off saying they are just for sexual pleasure?! Secondly, milk comes out of them like they are Super Soakers nowadays. So joke is on YOU society because nothing says sexy like milk flying out of my hooters. Before I had Bud I didn’t give nursing much thought to be honest. It never offended me when my friends would nurse in front of me or when I saw it happening in public. I figured a mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do. And you know what?! We do! When my baby is hungry, I am going to feed him. Milk comes in for a reason… and its not for my cereal.
So this poor mom was in Target with a hungry baby and had a God-given way to remedy the situation. And she was wearing a cover for cryin’ out loud. She was going above and beyond politely nursing her hungry child. I have been in public before when Bud has needed to eat. At first, I used to try and sit on a toilet and hide but 2 things happened: I could only picture the poop particles that float around when someone flushes and oh yeah, I found out my son is terrifed of flushing toilets.
So if this happens to me I’ve decided to do one of the following:
1. Follow the Target employee around with my screaming child next to their ear. I bet they will be begging me to nurse him after 2 minutes.
2. Throw a dirty diaper at them.
3. Start telling them all of the things that I think are “offensive” and ask them to eliminate them from the Target stores. For example- mullets, capri pants, jorts, mini skirts worn with Uggs when its 20 degrees outside, giant fake nails with butterflies airbrushed on them, puppy purses, tights worn as pants, and sugar-free candy.
