hooters, kids

No, there is no more dairy in my hooters, I'm just thinking about making a point.

A friend of mine had a little incident over the feeding of her infant today.

Do you know this type:
The parent feeding a baby greasy fries before they can even sit straight?
The mom that pours Dr. Pepper in the baby bottle?
The kind of parent that you want to grab and say, "really? you think this is best for that baby?"

Well, that's not my friend.

I may do some public breastfeeding today.

Sans the blanket.

Yep, I'm one of those who has publicly fed her children

Thinking about it tho... since my children are 8 and almost 7 my point may be lost in light of the other perpetual argument: at what age should you stop breastfeeding a child?

Not gonna go there. Not today anyway.

A Mother-Daughter Moment

Me (the mom): [busily texting a friend at 7am]

8 yo Daughter: [reading a book at 7am; glances at her mother]
"Mom, you should stop playing video games."

Me: "I am not playing video games."

8 yo Daughter: "Then what are you doing?"

Me: "I'm texting a friend."

8 yo Daughter: "Mmmm Hmmmm. It's like a video game."

Me: "It's NOT like a video game, it involves human interaction."

8 yo Daughter: "Not really."

Me: [defensively irritated, continuing to text]

8 yo Daughter: "Mom, that Crackberry is going to rot your brain. You should really read a book."
