Do what now?

in Oh Baby!

Being a mom has led to some pretty strange situations already, and I’m only 4 months into this gig. I seriously have found myself in situations, and doing things that I could never even have fathomed 4 months ago. Let me share a few:

  • Spending up to 1 1/2 hours a day with my boobs exposed at work (yay pumping!) (and, um hi random Google searches!)
  • Examining a dirty diaper intently to determine color and consistency
  • Sitting on the floor of a Von’s bathroom, with my sweater under the baby as some sort of barrier/padding as I change his diaper
  • Breast feeding in a Melrose Winchell’s Donuts at 10pm on a Friday night
  • Pumping in the backseat of the car on the freeway (I’m sure the truckers got a kick out of that one)
  • Breast feeding in a dressing room while my husband tries on clothes. I’m still wondering what the employees at that store thought of us.
  • Changing the baby in his carseat because there was no where else to put him

It’s been an interesting four months, to say the least. I wonder what this list will look like in a year?

As always, more lists can be found over at Anna’s at abdpbt!

I still sniff the pee and examine the poop, and I’m almost nine months into this gig! 🙂

I once pumped *while I was driving*. Top that, friend. 🙂

Motherhood makes you do all kinds of stuff you think you’d never do. Oh, and just wait until he starts imitating you and you realize how often you make stupid expressions, etc. (this is the current phase Mini is in).

Woah. I bow down to you–that is a juggling act I hope to never have to master! I’d be the one causing the traffic accident on the 5 (I fumble enough sitting still!).
