*You know you are a mother of a baby when you have a bloody nose while driving and in lieu of tissue, you use a diaper. Why yes I was that woman in northwest indiana with a huggies being held up to her face.

*I have been overwhelmed with work, lack of sleep and lots of laundry this week. Finding time to write or blog was hard. However, I did manage to still share my daily Crooked View.

*Currently I am pumping while typing at work, quite the site. not.

*Also, I have been back to the shrinking jeans site, posting my weights and confessions over there. That group, at the sisterhood, is nothing short of amazing.

*Winter sucks monkey balls

*Yes I typed that

* My nephew is due in about 7 weeks and we are getting ready for him! I still have to finish editing my sister's maternity photos. Working full time is proving to be a challenge with my hobby.

*Although I do still hate the fact that I had to go back to work and leave the baby, I think I am transitioning well. I don't cry everyday, but I still find my self upset quite often. Baby steps.

*When I started this post today I thought I would have more to say, but it turns out I don't.

*pumping at work sucks, so does having the door jiggled while my boobs are hanging out. Makes it kinda difficult to relax and let down. Just sayin'

*I start the week looking for Friday. Then again, who doesn't?

*If you don't read too much about JC on here, please don't think I am forgetting to mention him or on a baby high. He now knows I blog and has asked that I not talk about him so much. I have to obey that request. But he is doing wonderful straight A's and all. Love him so. much.

* Back to work....ick

Have a great weekend!

The parent volunteer was knocking on my door 9th hr when I was pumping. I cover uip, go answer the door, and she has a pass for a student that was marked FIFTH period. I'm like, Great, I had this girl four periods ago, and I don't see her until Monday. And you totally just ruined my pumping output, THANKS.

Aw, man, the diaper is an ingenious way to stop a nosebleed! One time at work, a guy cut his head open and I stuck a Kotex pad to his head. We sent him straight to the hospital...after we took pictures.

Enjoy your weekend!!

I've been pumping at work for a year now. I HATE the door knocks and jiggles. It's not a large office...and people should know why my door is closed, locked with a privacy flap on my window. But, never ceases! I find it hard to letdown too, when I'm nervous about what I hear in the hall.

I once grabbed a diaper to puke in. I understand. Hang in there with the pumping. I didn't live far from home so I could slip over on my lunch break, but boy did it suck!

wow, you are amazing! Pumping and blogging at work! Good for you! the door thing, yep I totally know that, it was enough to make me go to formula!! "letting down" was not happening with me!! I know I can handle your baby-steps, I just love reading about how everything is going, no matter how long between posts!!

Glad you are transitioning well and it is getting a little easier.

I think about Friday afternoon when I roll out of bed Monday morning also and swear I am going to start going to bed earlier.
