the doorbell rings and the first thing you do is look down at your shirt to make sure you are buttoned up

I was sitting in my living room floor cutting out a pattern for a summer skirt the door bell rings and I am sitting right there in line of sight of the door. : lucky for me I was decent and lucky for the poor JW as well

yeah that but in front of my neighbor b/c as we were talking ds signed "mommy milk". It took me until I was almost home to realize I had just openly gropped myself in front of her without even thinking about it.

You keep your back to your dc before you get in the shower b/c you know if they see the almighty boobie they will want to nurse.

I have groped myself SO often in public; I don't even think about it until after the fact.

These are so funny. : I can relate to pretty much all of them!!

How about this one:

You wake up with a boob hanging out of your nightshirt but don't remember getting it out.

You are at a restaurant with your nursling who starts yelling "I want to nurse on your booby" really loudly. (Mine did this recently.)

You know you are extended BF'ing when the kids from your original baby group potlucks all want to watch you nurse and ask questions about it, even though they were all breastfed. (I think I'm the last one in that group still nursing the original babe. )

AND: Two days ago DD and I picked up DH after work in the city (he usually takes the bus). We grabbed some dinner then DD wanted to nurse and we decided to go back to DH's office to nurse (soft chairs there ) and we knew we'd have a better chance of getting DD to use the bathroom there than the restaurant. It was late - 6:30 or so, but DH's boss was still working. He came out to play with DD for awhile, showed us some new pix of his two kidlets. Then DD wanted milkies. Boss went back into his office and I sat down to nurse in the middle of the main room.

DD likes to be able to see her "lunch" and hold onto it, and, we're used to NIP even though she's almost 4, so I didn't even think about sitting there with one boob all hanging out. But I felt a little weird after I realized that Boss was avoid looking our way as he had to go back and forth between his office and the printer.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

omg I found that any time I'm on the floor Jacob thinks its meal time. he chases me all over the place with his tongue hanging out and his eyes practically bugging and drooling and panting. Its kind of funny but best is when he finally *catches* me and nurses. that blissed out look!

I realized that I have 20 shirts clean and no pants because I go topless almost every day.

Or you wake up with both boobies hanging out...

Or you wake up in a puddle (or on a very wet towel...) The other morning I woke up to find that I had completely saturated the prefold I had laid under us, so that there was a perfectly square wet spot on the (freshly changed) sheets. : :

DH was watching me last night, and almost died laughing that I'm getting so fast one handed (I was always faster than him two handed...he has me type stuff up for him all the time cuz I can go so much faster that he'd rather dictate to me and I write it up for him...)

NAKing as we 'speak'....as usual. :-)

DD usually wants to nurse on the left side first, even if she didn't nurse on the right at all the last time. I tried to convince her to start with the right side yesterday by grabbing it and making it "talk" like a puppet with a silly voice. "Miiiiiiiilk meeeeeeeeeeeeeee." Then I thought I must really be : now. DD found it funny but still started on the left side.

She calls the left side chocolate. The right side is just plain milk, I guess.

when trying on shirts (to fit over your post pregnancy belly ) you pull your boob out of the top to make sure it'll work for nursing (in a Mai Tai )

This forum is great! Thanks for the laughs. It's funny cause it's true.

I deside what shirt to wear each day by checking to make sure my boobs can come out the top, but if ds is watching this he will want to nurse even if he just did.
