It's all about perspective

Or, If This Wasn't Already a Mommy-Blog, It Just Became One

I love nursing. It's really one of my favorite things about having a baby. It's a sweet time of bonding, something only Micah and I can do together. I love having his little body so close to mine, and I love that I am nourishing my child. It's a pretty cool thing. And, BONUS! It burns calories! I'm actually losing weight this time around.

But I don't like pumping. I am glad I have a nice office where I am able to do this, and I'm glad I can limit the amount of formula Micah gets, but I do. not. like. pumping. It's boring. It's such a chore. It's so mechanical. I try to incentivize pumping time to myself. "Look! I get to read blogs now! Yay for pumping time!" So far, I have not believed my own hype.

So I'm trying to shift my perspective on pumping time. I'm going to think of it, not so much as a chore that must be accomplished to feed the baby, but as nearly effortless exercise time. I get to sit in a chair and read blogs, and my body thinks it's exercising.

Score.

Silly body. Ha. I got a good chuckle out of that.
Also, there's nothing wrong with mommy-blogging. Only jerks who think it's OK to criticize everything about others and offer nothing positive or funny to this world.
