Motherhood Monday: Better Late then Never

Soooooo it's 6:30 at night and I finally have time to blog. Well I really dont, I probably have about 30 minutes before Ms Fussy Pants wakes up screaming again, and in that time I have to try and pump, eat, go to the bathroom, nap, and bathe if I am lucky. I ain't gonna lie, it's been rough lately kittens. Claire has been having some serious breastfeeding challenges, and I am seriously overwhelmed. To make it worse we also have an trip to Ontario looming on the horizon, we fly out on Thursday morning and I don't know how we will survive it! Even though it is to visit family, I am still dreading leaving our quite little home. I know that with time things will settle, and I am visiting the lactation consultant again tomorrow for help and advice....breastfeeding....sheeeeeeesh! You would think something so "natural" would be so much easier. It's not. GAH!

Sorry to just post a quick rant, but I do miss this lil blog and wanted to let you all know that I am still alive, I miss you all, and am thankful you are all so patient and sticking around. BEST readers ever!

Peace, Love and Pickles


  1. awwww you got this pretty mama! ya'll can do it!

  2. awe hun! i hope things get better soon! stay positive and keep your head up sending you lots of good thoughts and smooth feedings. xoxo

  3. I'm sorry to hear that it was a hard day. Since I'm reading this a day late, I hope that today is better!

    And I agree with LaLa -- I totally feel you.

  4. ms sister had an awful time breast I was prepared somewhat. I wasn't prepared to deal with Abe's tongue tie making breastfeeding nearly impossible!!

    We ending up having to get his tongue tie snipped and that made all the difference. Until the cluster feeding started! lol It might not seem like it but it does get easier!!

    I finally caved and started supplementing one bottle a day at night (he's 3 months now) and I am at least a little more sane now :P

  5. Thank you so much for all the support ladies! Things have gotten DRASTICALLY better! An update will come soon
