    Default A little levity

    My dog ate my pump-- my manual pump. Sigh. Now I have to lug my electric one home for a few nights until I can get to the store. Let this be a lesson to you to practice your hand expression! The day your dog eats your pump and you leave the electric one at work will be the day your LO picks to sleep through the night.

    PS- fortunately I got it away from him before it was down the hatch, unlike the valve he got a few weeks ago that took 4 days to make its reappearance in a pile of vomit while we worried like crazy. He's a wiley one.

    I know how lucky I am-- I was on the phone with DH crying that I was going to have to take him to the emergency clinic and I was a bad dog mom and that he was a good dog and we didn't pay enough attention to him after the baby, etc. etc. He was being extra wiley. We have to step up our counter-measures for sure.

    Keep it in the fridge where the dog (hopefully) can't get it.

    I'm so ready to be done pumping! But at least 6 more months to go.

    I was in a conference call the other day and pumping in my office. Had my phone on mute. Someone on the call says "Wow there's a lot of noise in the background. Is someone getting their building power washed?" This other guy in my building (who's office is next to mine) says "That's from over here. I'll take my phone off speaker phone". I'm thinking, dang, I can't believe the pump is so loud that they can hear it through the wall and on his line. I was totally embarressed, thinking it was way louder than I though and that everyone can hear it. Turns out they really were pressure washing the building!
