The Monday Morning Post


Between a sick Mommy and a sick three year old Sunday didn't happen but I had some links I wanted to share with you since I got through my reader! (happens only on the third blue moon of an even number year, or while I'm sick, whatever)
  • An amazingly open and honest post on PPD from Helene.(warning pretty raw and graphic)
  • The truest quote ever on breastfeeding: "I believe that in order for nursing to really work, you have to really want to do it and you have to believe that nursing is your ONLY option." If you believe otherwise (in my opinion) you are setting yourself up for booby traps. Go ready her story, it's inspiring. (from Beth)
  • Realizing Beautiful, a reminder we all probably need. (from Sarah)
  • I have a soon to be kindergartner too and feel just like this! (from Shell)
The Sunday Funnies!

Have a great Monday (if that's possible!)

When one doesn't feel good it is the perfect time to catch up on blogs we love.

Hope you feel better soon chica!

Sick Mommy and child is no fun at all. Helene's post I agree was very heart wrenchingly open and honest and Shell's post I loved too.

Completely agree with the nursing quote. Actually wrote a similarly themed post a while back about how important making the decision and the commitment to yourself and your baby is BEFORE you give birth. It's important to not beat yourself up if you can't do it for some reason, but once you are in the throws of nursing your baby wolverine, it's too easy to quit if you didn't promise yourself beforehand. Hope you guys feel better soon!
