breastmilk and cookies


i put breastmilk in my toddler's sippy cup yesterday.
before you let your face pucker in judgment here was my thinking.
pumped.
painfully.
baby doesn't need extra after nursing like her big brother did.
didn't have the heart to throw it out.
not enough worth storing.
toddler's cup was sitting on the counter.
so i poured it in.
and he drank it.
vwallah.
and then we ate cookies.
chocolate chocolate white mint chip ones.
...
motherhood lessons learned today:
routines are best achieved when everyone leaves and you're all on your own.
today is a GOOD day:-)
and there's air in the stroller tires.
yeeeeeessssssssssss!
wearing the same outfit two days in a row saves on laundry.
go me!!!
hey, my options are still limited!!!
it's like i've forgotten how to dress like a non-maternity person.
and i don't want tight.
hormonal sweating while sleeping and drying your hair makes for a super workout.
did i mention it's sunny today?!

I agree! I'd love to see Brennans face in 10 years! Haha! I probably wouldve done the same thing.
Ps his hair looks adorable!

Hey, he drank it once, why not now? You're taking your budgeting thing to a whole new level!

I actually am curious to taste my own breastmilk (I'm disgusting!) so I don't think theres anything wrong with you giving any to Brennan. It's not like you poured it in a coworkers coffee or something haha.

The baby girl is precious :o) Glad you're all doing well.

This post makes me like you all the more!

I had some leftover when Gabe was a baby so I made Colin some hot chocolate with it. Like you said - why waste that good stuff?
