Need a bra... I own no bras. I went to Target to buy one, the one I want is $29? Fuck no.. Maybe next week I'm too broke for that. Goes upstairs and proceeds to collect $179 with of shit for the kids without batting an eye lid. There is something very wrong with this bra-less picture 👊🏼 Con
"I sit here at McDonalds, drinking a sprite. Okay, it's my third sprite. And the lady in the corner...waits. She's been here since before I got here. In walks a man with a small boy, maybe 3 years old if that. 'You were supposed to be here an Hour ago.' she says , slightly upset. 'Well I'm here and here he is.' The man turns to walk out the door. She says, 'Hey do you have a couple dollars so I can get a cheeseburger? All I have is enough for his happy meal.' He looks around to see if anyone is watching. 'Screw you, Starve.' He says and walks out the door. She just shakes her head and walks to the counter with the boy. She orders a happy meal for the boy. The teen at the counter tells her her card left a balance of 37 cents. She and the boy walk to her car where she digs and finds the change. She and the boy sit down with the happy meal, and she sets up his food and his tiny drink cup. She asks him if mommy can have a fry, to which he feeds her the one he just took a bite off of.(I kinda chuckled to myself.) I walk to the soda machine and refill my cup, Powerade this time. And the teen from the counter is refiling the napkins. I hand him my debit card. And tell him to give her 2 doubles and a large fry and a large drink on me. I tell him not to tell her its from me. I wrote a note on a napkin with my sharpie I use at work. "Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL. :)" He brings me my debit card. Then walks back to the counter and takes the tray of food to her. He says 'This was bought for you.' 'By who?' 'I'm not supposed to say, but it wasn't me.' He says and walks back to the counter. She reads the note on the napkin as tears start to roll down her cheeks. She fills the drink cup and starts to eat. The child trades her a chicken nugget, for a bite of the burger.(I chuckle again.) After they both finish their meal, they start to leave. They walk passed me sitting here and I smile at the boy and look at her and she whispers "thank you" I whisper back "for what?" She smiles. I wink. I look down at the boy and I say have a good day :) Life is hard. Always be willing to make someones life a little easier. Little things make a big impact. For any single parent stuck in a similar place... Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL."
It's international breast feeding week. Which is just rad. Breasts are beautiful, Babies are beautiful, And nothing beats a baby with a full tummy.
Breast feeding mums deserve all the praise in the world, they are glorious selfless super beings.
And do you know who what other glorious, selfless super beings deserve all the praise in the world?
Formula feeding mums.
I started full time formula feeding the twins at around 5 months and guess what? It's no joy ride either.
In fact, in some ways it's harder then breast feeding. Making milk, cleaning bottles. That's not fun.
But I was able to pass on some work load to Bill and my mum and pretty much anyone who walked into my house and that made the world of difference.
It took me 4 babies to learn that I wasn't getting any medals for making life hard for myself. Boy do I know that now. I owe the majority of my mental health and happiness to my shortcuts.
Formula feeding is not giving up on breastfeeding. Just as much as breastfeeding is not giving up on formula.
There is no right or wrong. There is simply the way of the Queen.
I hope that all the breastfeeding posts make breastfeeding mums feel special, because you are. But I really hope that they don't make formula feeding mums feel any less special. Because we are all pretty fucking special is you ask me.
And anyone who soldiers on through the trials and tribulations of feeding a baby should be celebrated this week and every week.
The secret is that most of the time doing what is best for you and doing what is best for your baby are the exact same thing. 💗👑🙏🏼
