one Tuesday a month we go to La Leche League meetings for mamas and toddlers who still nurse. we talk about what’s hard, what’s not working. how we don’t get a lot of sleep, how this is all going to work with the next baby. and i identify with all of those rough spots. and it is good to hear the stories and experience of mamas who have been where you are now.
but that’s not the whole story.
sometimes i wish we’d talk about how nice it is to come home after a long morning on the town and snuggle this big girl in my arms and nurse her to sleep. to feel her weight in my tired arms. her fingers on my skin.
