Funny Things That Happen After Baby Arrives
Let me share a funny story. A few weeks ago, my husband, baby boy, and I were traveling to see family across the state. My son was still nursing every two hours or so (still is!) and we were looking at a three-hour car drive ahead of us. Without getting into too many details, my right breast became very full and the only solution was to hand express some of my milk in to a semi-empty diet soda cup. I made it very clear to my husband that he should not drink from that cup since it was now a lovely concoction of breast milk and watered-down soda. He was naturally willing to oblige this request. A few minutes later I decided to give my sister a call and while chatting away I casually reached over and took a big gulp out of my diet soda cup! My husband made a hilarious face and I shouted as we both realized what I had just done! I had successfully had my first taste of breast milk. I have got to be honest with you, it really wasn’t that bad. More than anything we gained a funny story to look back on (check out more of our funny stories here)!
In some ways I feel as if our life is now much more entertaining with a baby around than it ever was before. Nearly everything has had some sort of baby bodily fluid on it. Our little guy produces man-sized farts like a professional, and he shamelessly grunts (you know what grunts I am talking about) no matter where we are. It’s a riot. These are the moments that I want to remember forever (even though in the moment I might think otherwise).
