Honey, Don't Eat the Children

The other day, Matt and I were preparing to take Natalie out grocery shopping with us.  This is quite the adventure as I need to get presentable myself, pack her diaper bag in case of emergencies, feed her, and then immediately leave as the girl is attached to my boob every two hours on the hour.  It takes a lot of coordination on our parts.

We were all sitting on the couch waiting for Natalie to get hungry when Matt presented his plan to us...

Matt:  "I'm going to take a shower as soon as you eat her."

Um, what?

He clearly meant "feed" her...and tried to play it off like that's what he said...but he couldn't fool me.

So add that to the list of motherly duties I have.  Making sure my husband doesn't mistakenly eat my child instead of feed her.

A mother's work is never done.

haha! That will be a good story to tell her someday! That sounds like something my husband would say, followed up with a "or whatever you're doing over there, I meant..." type of blabbering comment. :-)

lol, that is too funny! Gosh I don't miss those days.... I definitely miss the days of having a newborn and those cuddling moments but I don't miss having only 2 hours to get out and do things just so that I could be back home in time to feed the baby! I never did get over my modesty so I wasn't able to nurse in public... after 6 weeks I switched him to formula!
