Thus the mother feels validated in her wonderful Billy... and she kind of feels sorry for me and says something "supportive"...

I can't wait to ask him how he decided to change from an accountant to a professional baseball scout. That must have been quite an adventure." Love this! What a great comeback to a very odd situation! I have found that a tiny bit of self-deprecating humor can go a long way toward taking the wind out of...

That was a great read. WRT this one: Quote: You have downloaded and printed or purchased "Thank you for breastfeeding in public" cards to hand out to breastfeeding moms you spot while out and about. And you use them too. There are some in your purse, your glove box, your diaper bag, the back pocket of your jeans, and your kids backpack. You consider it a good day if you got to hand out a few at the mall Is that a real thing people do? I've never...
