Today I went to visit my mother at her work (the IRS) so that she could show off the babies to her co-workers. Of course while there I had to nurse both babies. It was really funny to see how quickly it made some people scatter. One man was coming over to my mom's cubicle and a lady standing there talking to me says "She's nursing!" and he stammers "Oh, I'm sorry! I don't want to embarrass you!" and I said "You won't embarrass me...come on over!"
It got me thinking about some of the funny and wacky places I've nursed and I thought it would be fun to share them with each other.
These are with Haven (my now 2 1/2 year old):
~ On a bus in Vegas going to Circus Circus.
~ Hanging over her in the backseat of our car while dh was driving.
~ In every restaurant we've ever eaten at.
~ Walking through Wal-Mart while pushing my cart and holding her.
~ Walking through Target and shopping.
~ This one is the best...when she was about 18 months old dh and I went to Wal-Mart to buy new sheets. She was cranky from a long day of shopping and was begging for "ga-ga". I had a big sweatshirt on so I sat her in the front seat of the cart and put my sweatshirt over her head while she nursed sitting up. Dh about fell over when he saw what we were doing.
These are with the twins so far:
~ Every bench in our mall.
~ Holding and nursing Faith while standing with my foot on the stroller and shaking it so that Lillie won't cry waiting for her turn and pushing Haven on the swing. The other Mommies in our playgroup will never be the same.
~ Standing in line at the grocery store, unloading my cart, nursing Lillie.
