But there were no tears until we we pulled up in the driveway on the way home. I put him in the sling, put away the cold stuff, and left the rest in the car while we nursed. Maybe I'll get brave again and go to Target today....
Mine screams hard in the car too!! Oh isn't it heartbreaking?

You should be proud -- and none of that sounds boastful in a bad way. Heck this whole thread is about giving ourselves pats on the back for what we have achieved! I say shout from the rooftops, mama!
I'm so proud of everyone in this DDC. Look at us all making it work! All of us have had to face fears, deal with loss/grief, and dig deep to get where we are -- many of us are still digging deep (especially hugs to Bree on her, what is this, 99th round of mastitis?) to be the mamas we want to be. We are all doing fabulous.
Today I'm proud that I basically swatted the pediatricians hand away from DS's penis. He said he was looking to see if hair was wrapped around it, but I don't know why there would be hair wrapped around inside his foreskin. What is up with nosey pediatricians wanting to stare and gawk and POKE at an intact penis??
I'm proud that I swallowed my pride and took Finn to the pediatrician after the bad experience I had there after his first visit. I was afraid they'd be nasty to me b/c I never brought him back and never did his bili check.
I'm proud that I'm going to go ahead with the zantac and trust my mama gut on this one, even though most ppl think it's overprescribed and unnecessary. I'm proud that I'm doing what I think is the right thing for my little boy.
