The Cow

At Kenyon's request I need to write a little disclaimer. Under our heading "Fausett Family" I've typed a kind of description of each of us. I use to be "the bun warmer" but since I am no longer warming a bun, I needed a new one. Kenyon thinks "the cow" is a little much, but lets be brutally honest. All you mommies who've nursed know it is not glamorous, in fact far from it. Not only do I have two jugs of warm milk making me a hot mess...literally, my life revolves around the next time I will be "milked"...(sorry about all the quotation marks). Oh and truthfully I don't smell much better than a heffer. So sorry Ken and all those I may offend, just keepin it real.

Uh, yeah, I totally agree. I counted down the days until I could "official" have my body back. Moooooo!

I COMPLETELY agree! I'm going through it right now and although I think it is best for the baby, it is hard for me to want to nurse until next APRIL!!! But, your friend Anne is right...at least it keeps us skinny! ~Andrea

I read a book when I was nursing Olivia called "The Politics of Breastfeeding", and it said that all mammals nurse. Why should we call ourselves (or feel like) cows, instead of say. . . tigers. Tigers produce milk. Gazelles produce milk. Cows are just so unglamorous.
However, I agree. It's difficult to feel glamorous when leaking and sweating and all those other things connected with nursing. But it's more fun to say you feel like a tiger than a cow.

And think of the extra 500 calories a day. Those are definitely nice.

I would like to comment on the Heffer comment. All I have to say it Mr. Palmer was right!
