Aside

So this week has been a big one in the breastfeeding world. It seems a very popular blogger, The Feminist Breeder, had her picture removed from Facebook and then her account was blocked for 72 hours. Like that is such punishment. Like she is going to come back with a vengeance! She is encouraging moms to post their breastfeeding pictures with the captions included:

She had many of her own pictures with different color, but the same words. I am proud to see breastfeeding pictures all over Facebook today, but I follow many pages that those kind of pictures are always up. I never have ever had a problem with them. I am just trying to understand why someone who follows a person called the Feminist Breeder has a real problem seeing breastfeeding pictures. If you don’t like it there is no reason to report them to Facebook, just stop following her!!! Click on the above link to read her whole story.

Now if you have a problem with my picture please feel free to stop following me! If you find it offensive or damaging to children you are more than welcome to your opinion, wrong as it is, you are welcome to it, but feel free to get lost!

This is my contribution to this cause. Not only was I breastfeeding a newborn, but also a *gasp* toddler! He loves his nummies time and you can not tell him he can’t have them. This the most normal way of feeding a baby and I hope you can be happy for me and my child and not judge either of us for it!

So if you are so inclined, please feel free to post your breastfeeding pictures on Facebook! Join the 72 hour movement to normalize breastfeeding!

It’s been a month! I’m sorry

Standard

Oh my goodness! It’s been a month since I posted! I have been so distracted. I love writing here, but I haven’t been able to get to my computer lately. So I’m posting from my phone. Not a bad thing but typing with my thumbs is not the easiest thing. Needless to say I’m just checking in with all of u.

I have been busy with the kiddos, work and getting things going with the diaper bank.

We had a great women’s expo and received enough in donations and selling bracelets to order 11 cases of econobums from Cottonbabies. We also helped our first family this month. As soon as we get the econobums we will be able to finally get things going. I plan to meet with a news woman and talking about it with her as well. We have received requests to help with volunteering as well. It’s moving right along.

Kids are doing well at school. All got their first report cards and the reports are good! Gearing up for all of the senior year stuff is a lot to deal with but he’s excited as well. On a school ski trip this week with only a minor fall.

I promise to post a longer post soon! Thanks for following me.
