Yesterday turned into a full day all about MILK for me. Seems boring? Maybe. Seems like I’m hanging with too many toddlers? Definitely.
But a day that usually consists of between 1 and 4 straw cups with luke warm milk in them became an entire day surrounded by MILK.
Photo to the left proves the Littles addiction to “hot milts” – that’s how they say it. And they may, at some point in the near future, require an intervention from it.
But that was just the start of yesterday as MILK day.
I’ll start with the obvious…by now you’ve seen the cover of Time magazine. Clearly sales and subscriptions are down to have felt like the only way forward was such a provocative cover.
I, personally, am not getting involved in the mommy battle of the type of parenting one chooses- Hubs and I just spend our days trying to do the best we can at any given moment.
What I’m talking about more here, isn’t what the cover story is about- its the cover in and of itself.
Why make something natural, like breastfeeding in general,into something tawdry? Does it really just boil down to MONEY?
Recently I read that a woman flying out of Hawaii was asked by TSA agents to prove that her breast pump was real!?
Does this mean breastfeeding – which is hard enough on its own- has become even harder?
Does it mean we are loosing tolerence? If you breastfeed your wrong, If you don’t you’re also wrong?
Come one moms, lets all just stand behind each other as we all attack the hardest job on the planet.
Finally I was able to attend a MILK event I can really stand behind. I was invited to attend the Got Milk? unveiling of its latest ad featuring teen star of Vampire Diaries fame, Nina Debrov and her gorgeous mother, Michaela.
