tune in tokyo

A few weeks ago I stopped wearing nursing pads to work (or anywhere for that matter). I had grown weary of catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror and seeing two flat 4 inch discs floating just below the surface of my shirt. I figured since Gideon is eating less often and I'm not completely engorged every two hours I'd be safe. And I am. It's nice to not have to wear them everyday.

Now I have another problem. My nipples. I feel like they are poking out so far that you could hang your coat off of them. I wonder if my students notice?

Boy, Pixie. I had rather - ahem - noticable headlights BEFORE I had a baby, which was one of the reasons I didn't breastfeed. Yep, I was vain at the expense of my child. I didn't want streched-out nips.

(Don't call CPS. She was never sick and now she's 7). Good times

Hmmm, I know all too well about this nipple condition of which you speak. I've seen this condition in the flesh. I like the coathanger analogy.

I'm calling CPS on Leezer. Shame on you for not breastfeeding your child because you were afraid how your boobies would look. What's the matter with you?

leezer—Saggy boobs and stretched out nips. See what we do for our children? And how are we rewarded? That's right, unconditional love (at least while they're young).

egan—It paints a pretty picture doesn't it? "Can I take your coat and hat, sir?"

If your students are male, then I can pretty much guarantee that they notice. Tune in Tokyo... Nice.

I stopped breastfeeding about a month ago. Since this is my first child, I was naive enough to believe that my boobs would return to normal. Not so, my friend. I feel your pain.

Pixie - yes, you can say goodbye to your once perky breasts. Sad, but true. I know JQ loves ya anyway. Beside imagine how they'll look when your 60. Image: Tennis ball in a sock.

All my love,

p.s. Fortunately and unfortunately, they were pretty noticeable before Gideon.

Pixie- Just tell them your smuggling Kaiser helmets.

AC(W)P- Damnit! I was going to use that analogy! :)
