of boobs and bras...a memoir

I have two boobs. Not so surprising since most females do. It's actually quite special. They have magical milk producing powers and Lucian and I make good use of them. I'm kind of like a cow. Not in a bad way though. Well, I guess not all in a good way either since I do have some extra baby-weight hanging out. Regardless, I am a milk producing super goddess. Take that!

Due to my new super milk powers, I have been submerged in the culture of nursing bras. These things are quite special. If you've never given one a closer look, maybe you should! Some have snaps. Some have clips. Some hook in the back. Some don't hook at all. Heck, I'm sure if you look hard enough you can find some that literally have bells AND whistles. Now try to hide that under your shirt! With my new found fondness for bras that come apart exposing breast on demand has come a small issue. Well Medium issue I guess if we're actually talking about size. Occasionally I forget to reclip, snap, button, or otherwise fasten my special fancy pants bra after nursing. When this happens I may possibly wander about downtown or through base with one happy little boob outside the confines of its home. Sadly I have done this more than once.

All things considered though, I think that I and other new moms have more important stuff to worry about. I mean whats a little boob when I have managed to remember the child, the mail, the coupons, the library books, my keys, cell phone, wallet AND my mind. I think that's good enough for me!


  1. I frequently find myself wanting to respond to your posts by shouting "Amen to that, sister!" but have tried to refrain from leaving that as my comment every time, not sure how successful I feel, but I'd like to say "Amen to that, sister!" and at least you have an excuse, here in GA bras are optional...no more need be said!

  2. LOL I can relate to this post. I can't tell you how many times I forgot to re-latch my bra after feeding one of my kids. And I was a super milk maker too. If someone else's baby cried the milk would come pouring :o
