Mami Shortcuts

Hi Mamis…

So I just finished giving myself a 10 minute manicure over at Sephora…and while I was waiting for my polish to dry (Marc Jacobs Nail Lacquer in Oui – amazing purple/pink color) I started thinking about mami shortcuts.

Our time is limited so we come up with time savers – for everything. For example…I apply my makeup during my commute to work (only recommended if you have steady hands and nerves of steel). I often eat at my desk so I have my lunch hour free to devote to personal errands, etc. So this afternoon when I grew tired of looking at my man hands so I ran into Sephora and spent $0 on a nice manicure. Whohooo! It’s the little things that keeps me going!

What are your mami shortcuts? Please share!

I think I want my breastises back

Hi Mamis…

I have a major confession to make. I think I’m ready to wean my daughter off the boob. It’s really hard to admit that since I’m so super pro breast feeding and baby led weaning, I feel like a hypocrite. It’s just come to a point where I want my boobs to be my own again.

Right now my darling little meatball nurses on demand (which means she nurses at night) and I’m kind of finding myself increasingly annoyed by late night nursing sessions. I know, that’s pretty crappy but it’s the truth. I fear that my increasing annoyance will taint my whole breastfeeding experience.

So what do I do? How do I begin the weaning process? When do I begin it? The World Health Organization currently recommends that mothers breastfeed until the age of 2. Luckily enough, my meatball will be 2 fairly soon. Should I wait? We’re almost there, about 2 months away, or should I start weaning now?

Do any of you have plans to wean? Have you weaned? How did you feel? How do your boobs feel? Did they get engorged and was it painful or did you barely notice? Please leave your comments, I’m really curious to read your thoughts and advice on this matter.

Have a great evening mamis!

OH!!! And if you didn’t notice, the title of this post has a reference to a lyric from Drunk In Love which has pretty much been on repeat since December. All hail Beyoncé!!! (Who also breastfed!!!!!)
