Wasted breast milk

I was just in the Giant picking up some essentials. Cupcakes, orange juice, cinnamon buns, chocolate milk. Ya know the usual?

Well I headed over to the card section to pick up birthday cards for my Gannie (Happy birthday Gans!) and I saw a section of cards from Hallmark called "Edge of Motherhood"

And this card made me LOL.

When I saw this I thought about my sisters wedding. Phoenix was 3 months old and still nursing of course. I was wearing a strapless dress that had to be unzipped and I was still getting used to him and his schedule and getting the hang of everything. Extra diapers? Check. Paci? Check. 3 changes of clothes? Check? Blankets? Check. Pumped milk? Shit! I had forgotten to grab the milk out of the fridge before leaving to go to my parents to get ready. Like I said. I was still getting the hang of this thing. I called Shawn to have him grab the milk and he put the milk in a Safeway grocery bag. When we got the reception venue some milk had thawed and spilled in the bag and some milk was still frozen. I nursed him after the ceremony, but when it was time for another feeding I was going to do a bottle....BUT. Because we left the milk sitting in the kitchen of the venue (to thaw) someone threw it away! So there went about 40 something ounces (again I had Shawn bring it and he brought the entire stash) of breast milk in the trash!

I'm going to be taking a break from extra curricular internet activity. My church is fasting for 7 days and I decided to fast from internet which pulls my attention C.O.N.S.T.A.N.T.L.Y. Shawn is fasting from his phone (YES! There is a GOD!)

I'll be gone until the 19th. But I do have a cute Silent Sunday scheduled to pop up. It's cute and hopefully won't offend to many Obama fans.

Here are some pictures from the aforementioned wedding.

He was the ring baby and his aunt Juli pulled him down the aisle. Scary moment for Mommy!

  1. I'm very jealous of your milk producing abilities. Mine never came in and it was really upsetting to me!
