Morning Conversations...

Me: Hmm...its almost 7 a.m., time for Michael to get ready for school...when did we finally get her down?

Him: 4 a.m. I think.

Me: I don't remember that.

Him: We both worked on it.

Michael: (Jumping into the room) Its 7:04, time to get up!

LATER:

Michael: Umm..I got some of the eggshells into the bowl. (And now its on his shirt)

Him: (Willow crying a bit) Should I give her the formula instead??!? Michael--could you get the wipes? They are upstairs in our room...

15 mins later:

Me: Michael, its in a yellow container. Umm..there is water everywhere on the floor because you loaded the dishwasher wrong and a plate filled up and splashed water everywhere when I opened it. BTW, there are bottles boiled now, just in case, but I will breast feed her in a few minutes.

Michael: Why did you guys not tell me it was a plastic container?

Me: Could you get Michael a new shirt?

Me and Michael: Not that one!

Michael: That toaster waffle is Broken!! (refuses to eat it--until we explain it can't be broken)

Me: (to Him)Okay, so this is how you scramble eggs...

End:

We all made the scrambled eggs; Michael got a new shirt on; Willow ate two breasts; Him almost forgot the blueberry muffins to bring into school cuz its a field trip day...

Ahh...choas...

Are you flattening your nipple? aka "nipple sandwich"? when you shove it in her mouth?

FUSSY(ALL OF A SUDDEN MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK, I'M NOT YELLING)FUSSY NEWBORNS ARE NORMAL AND COMMON AND DOES NOT MEAN SHE ISN'T GETTING ENOUGH MILK AS LONG AS HER PEES AND POOPS ARE GOOD, DO NOT GO ON BEHAVIOR.

IF YOU USE FORMULA YOU WILL HAVE TO PUMP, BUT FORMULA IS HARDER TO DIGEST AND TAKES LONGER TO LEAVE THE BABIES SYSTEM. SHE MAY TAKE LESS BM FROM YOU NEXT TIME AND YOU ARE NOW ON A SLIPPERY SLOPE. WOMEN WITH YOUR EXACT STORY COME TO US SEVERAL TIMES A DAY. GO HERE WWW.KELLYMOM.COM THEY HAVE A GREAT MESSAGE BOARD THAT CAN REALLY HELP.

SORRY THIS GOT LONG, I'M JUST PASSIONATE ABOUT CORRECT INFO WHEN IT COMES TO THIS, WOMEN GET SABOTAGED ALL THE TIME.

Breastfeeding is going well, just wanted to point out how husband was a bit panicky this morning. We did give her some formula last night, per pediatrician, but other than that, she has been doing breast milk.
