Today I celebrated my firstborn’s 4th birthday. 4 years as a mother, who would have thought? It’s been quite the experience, my life is unrecognizable compared to what it used to be and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Last month we celebrated Zen’s 1st birthday and Shammy’s 3rd birthday. This also marks 3 years of breastfeeding and 1 year of tandem nursing.
My boys are growing up fast and the older they get the more they look alike.
This week I celebrated World Breastfeeding Week by organizing our local Big Latch On event. This is my 3rd and final time organizing, it’s been a fun ride but I am burnt out and it’s time to step back and allow a fresh face to take over the wheel. I still look forward to attending next year and actually enjoy the event instead of running around coordinating everything.
I wish I had good news to report on my quest for closure after the incident where I was harassed by nursing in a restaurant. The restaurant’s lawyers are taking the “ignore the problem and it will go away” approach and have not responded to any of my lawyer’s letters. The only option left is to file a lawsuit. Sadly due to my very part time work hours (thank you Congress) I don’t have the money for court filing fees. I am very blessed to be a part of an online group of breastfeeding mothers that despite never meeting me in person are trying to help but I know that times are tough and they may not be able to raise the $400 and change needed. I still feel very humbled and grateful for their efforts.
