just returned from a breastfeeding class downtown. i apparently have been given patron saint status from the lactation consultant there, as i pumped for 5 months since BC and i could not do this little allegedly natural arrangement successfully. i am hoping that this class will boost my confidence so that we can just get on with it and get this dude fed without my losing my mind.
it is so cute to see the soon-to-be first time moms in the class. they have just no clue whatsoever what is about to befall them. i am sure i have no clue what will befall me when this little guy enters the picture, but at least i know that. these ladies are still in the "child-rearing-book-reading, eat only good-for-you foods" mode. they think that they have everything under control.
heehee. control. i like that word. next, they will be talking about buying organic veggies and making their own baby food while baby naps in the sling ;-)
kum ba yah!
