Assuming you're not opposed to bumper stickers and the like that is.

I was walking around the track today and I saw one of those white paste on stickers (kwim?) just the white writing? With a design??

It was 2 upside down semi-circles, with bumps...looked like crudely drawn breasts and across them it said "Got Milk?"

How many looks would I get if I put that on my van?

Keep in mind that I already have "Think vaccines are really safe? www.thinktwice.com" "God doesn't make mistakes. Say NO to circumcision" "Breastfeeding for All, Circumcision for NONE." and an Obama sticker.

If you did put it on, along with your other stickers, and I saw you on the road, I'd be tempted to follow you home so we could be friends.

I saw a "Normal Birth" car magnet the other day and if I hadn't lost her at a traffic light, I would have stalked that car too. Perhaps I am a little desperate for like-minded company.

I would totally honk and wave if I drove by you

The answer is no, I probably wouldn't put that particular sticker on my car, but I have been wanting to find a bumper sticker (or a few) that I would want on the car.

I was thinking the same thing, meganmarie. I said I'd honk and wave.

I am desperate for some local like minded mamas. I don't know anyone here and it's more of a conservative area than where I used to live.

there are some really fun ones at Cafepress.com, just search under breastfeeding, co-sleeping, cloth-diapering etc. I got a few from that site!

As for the OP question, I'd put it on my car!! That is awesome

Woops, guess I was clear as mud for non-locals. LOL

By track I mean racetrack (sprint cars) and by 'saw' I mean on a black cardboard dealie listing the Got Milk sticker for sale. I'm totally taking my $5 over there tomorrow and buying it...

And stalk away, I only have one other 'crunchy' friend...

I saw a car in the parking lot for my daughters ballet class that was plastered with pro-breastfeeding, normal birth, co-exist, stickers on it and I started up a conversation and found out she was a mom on one of my online groups! My husbands comment when he saw the car was "hey looks like you could be friends" She did say that one of her BF stickers and a Feminism sticker got ripped off my someone-HOW RUDE! and yes I would totally rock that sticker.

I would totally follow you and want to know if you would be my friend too! LOVE IT! I had a mama come up to me the other day when I was in town and asked about the breast feeding symbol on my truck. She totally loved it and said she was going to order one.

I wish I had my own car so I could put stuff like that on it! I remember one day rushing back from nursing ds on my 30-min lunch break, I saw a car plastered with pro-bfing bumper stickers including one that said "I make milk; what's your superpower?" and it made my day to the point that i sped up, rolled down my window and told the lady so.

Very blessed mama to one bouncin' boy bouncy.gif (12/07) one angel3.gif who didn't get to stay (6/09), one potty learning, mess making divaenergy.gif(4/10), and one cheerful milk monster. aabfwoman.gif (12/11) Happy partner to the love of my lifedp_malesling.GIF.

Lmao...that gave me a good chuckle!

How to make friends step #1). Put stickers on your car to lure them back to your home. Its very much like fishing:. Like minded stickers = bait.:

Right now I have a few from Cafepress on my van...

~the bf blue/white symbol with "breastfeeding. anytime. anywhere'
~ a 'think green. use cloth" with a pic of a pinned dipe
~ a wickedly cute one that is two "daisies" with a darker center (obviously breasts ) that says 'lactivist'
~ and 'mothers can change the world' with planet earth wearing a cd <-- this is my fave and I wish it were waaaay bigger
~ I also have a couple intactivist/gd stickers up on the yakima (the travel carrier on top)

I looove bumper stickers but dh doesn't soo my happy medium is roll out magnetic paper. I apply the sticker, cut it out and theere it is:.

Plus I like to change them up a bit , and take them off to wash the van.
