Baby’s Hungry: A Daddy’s Perspective on Nursing (and Nursing in Public)

Standard

As a breastfeeding Mother, I wanted to Reblog this because this blog post is AMAZING!!! I breastfed my first child for 3 weeks then gave up due to lack of support and lack of knowledge. Then I went on to breastfeed my second until he chose to self wean at 18 months. Breastfeeding a toddler didn’t go over well with many people I encountered, especially because his last 6 months, I was pregnant with my third. I am now going strong with my 5 month old and will breastfeed until he decides to self wean. Love this blog post – How public is too public? How old is too old?

I was about twelve, riding the DC Metrobus home from school, when a woman started complaining loudly about another woman breastfeeding her baby on the bus. I didn’t see anything, so I don’t know if the nursing mother was covered up or not, but that’s irrelevant here. The complaining woman made her way up to the driver, a taciturn and tough-looking man who looked like he would as soon cut your throat as say hello (I remember him because he drove that route often). He focused on the afternoon traffic as the woman complained, until he came to a light and she demanded, “Well? Aren’t you going to do something?”

The driver looked out at the cross traffic for a moment, absently drumming his fingers on the fare box, then turned to the woman and shrugged.

“Baby’s hungry.”

I can’t say for certain that the woman immediately…

Is Beauty always what it seems? Always a good thing?

Movies about high school, the most beautiful and popular girl….
Shallow and mean, almost evil…

Nature, beautiful and amazing snow scenery…..
Thousands without power, car accidents, money down the drain, parents unsure if little ones will be able to have a good Christmas now….

How can something so beautiful be so devastating? So opposite of what it appears?

Fun things you see at Walmart & on the way

Standard

I’m sure everyone has heard or seen the stereotypes that have to do with Walmart. If you haven’t, just google The People of Walmart and you should find plenty of funny things. Well, this post is a little late but with Christmas and everything, I figured it would be understandable.

During one day of Christmas shopping, hubby and I were on our way to Walmart. We were stopped at a red light when we looked over at the Burger King on the right side of the street. What we saw made me laugh out loud!!!

You can’t really tell because we were a little far away but….do you see the lump on the top of this car that is in the drive threw???

How about now?? That, my friends, is a deer! This person went hunting, bagged a deer, and then thought to themselves “Hey, let’s celebrate with some Burger King!!” Lol, I feel bad for the drive threw workers, can you imagine opening that window to the blast of dead deer carcass?? Blah!!!

Then we were driving around in the Walmart parking lot, looking for a parking spot. Drove past this car and had to put us in reverse so I could check to make sure I saw what I thought I saw lol.

I did blur the license plate to protect identities and all that stuff. But look!! A purple mustache on a car!!!

This was so funny, I couldn’t believe it. I’ve seen reindeer noses but never mustaches lol. I normally don’t follow the stereotypes of Walmart but these are definitely giving me pause lol.

Does anyone else see funny things on cars? Going down the road? In parking lots? Are you weird like me and take pictures or just laugh in the moment and let it go lol?
