: Two of several things I don't feel "in place" about on MDC. Then again, I was creeped out whenever my babies moved inside me (felt like alien and never felt the gushy love about their movements), and I've never had that lovey feeling nursing either. As Caroline said, I do it because I know its best for my chidlren; I know I am blessed to be able to do it with relatively few problems, but I don't feel what I read a lot of other women feel. Don't get me wrong, I love my children to pieces and can't get enough of them and am very stongly bonded to them, I just don't feel that particular feeling others describe when nursing.
I WAH, but the only reason I'm able to do it is that my son is able to entertain himself a lot, and hopefully DD will be able to, too (or DS will entertain her for me). I work a split shift so I am able to take a few hours to really "be" with them durign the day, and things go relatively well, I think. I actually like having my work at home because there's no time getting to work, getting ready for work, etc. etc., AND I am totally able to shut it off when my shift is done. And I don't do overtime. When my time is up, I clock out, and don't even think about it until the next day. Then again, I'm an employee (not my own business), so it's easier fo me than if I was my own boss, I'd likely be thinking about it all night, too.
And speakign of work, better get back to it.
Megs, we used to watch Scrubs all the time, but got out of it...is it still on even? Like I need another thing to watch on TV again.....
Oh yeah, in the hospital DD left my side once when they were doing her hearing test and I took a shower while they did it....but I had that 3-day nursery charge on the bill. Nice.
