Free at last, free at last! Thank God Almighty, my boobs are free at last!

Yes, my boobs. Summer has been weaned for about 2 weeks now. At the time it was pretty sad for me. I mean, for the past year+ I’ve spent exclusive one-on-one time with her doing something nobody else could for her. I really enjoyed it. What made it even harder for me was that first night when I just read her a story and rocked her for a minute and then put her down in her crib and she fell right asleep. No crying, no fussing, nada. I always knew it would be easy for her. Nursing was kind of a “take it or leave it” thing for her. But geez, I thought I’d at least be missed a little! Nope.

Well, it only took me one night to realize how awesome it is. It’s like I have a newfound freedom. Now Derrick can put her to bed! I don’t even have to be home! I’ll admit, that first week I kind of took advantage of the situation. I went out, I watched TV, I let Derrick “practice” putting her to bed. It was glorious. It’s not that bad though. She’s super snuggly and it’s really one of the best parts of the day.

I’m thinking my evenings are going to get a lot more social from now on. Especially since Derrick was just accepted into the MBA program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, through Kohl’s. He’ll be studying and doing lots of homework every night, so shoot, I might as well go out and do something fun! He can put her down and then hit the books! Mostly I’m trying to convince myself that the next two years of school for him won’t be complete hell for ME, especially with a new babe. I guess I have until August to live up my freedom before I’m behind bars a nursing cover again.

Anyway, if you’d like to go out and do something with myself and my new free boobs, you just let me know!

I feel like it would be inappropriate for me to do anything with your new free boobs. That being said, if you want to come out to California, the three of us could hang out, maybe get some Del.

Yes be free! Be free while you can. And it really is so nice when you have that bedtime freedom, which is why with Alex I ensured I did NOT nurse her right before bed, I did not want to be stuck having to be there to put her to bed.

And the first thing I thought when I saw your title, is you might get some weird creepy people coming to your blog now through google :)

How lucky for you that she was weaned so easily! Enjoy your new found freedom. Now you can check out a TLCB show!

Hey if you need sympathy about having 2 kids and a husband in school, just let me know. William is finishing grad school this semester, then off to a PhD (3 more years!!!) in the fall. So. I'm right there with you. I also know how good it feels to wean! Zara didn't care much either. And when you are finally done breastfeeding you realize how free you weren't!

Haha. You're so funny. But it is a nice feeling to be free to go wherever you want for as long as you want to. Enjoy it. And CONGRATS on your pregnancy! I'm so excited for you!!

Sidenote: I just blogged about how busy I am with two kids-- sorry, it's the truth. But moreso, the truth is that I love having a new baby and I love having 2 children. I love looking around and saying to myself, "this is my family!" And I am looking forward to having more kids, someday. :) Anyway, the point, I'm excited for you. Congratulations!!

I can't wait either, three months and counting. Although, I may be able to wean in two months due to my amazing supply I have stashed away. I look forward to wearing what ever I want, not having to carry the pump bag to work, and feeding Madie anywhere I please. Rich gives Madie a bottle of mommy's milk at night and she goes right to bed and then I pump before I go to bed. We are so lucky to have hands-on husbands. Congrats to Derrick for pursuing his MBA!
