    I always wonder what people think if they see me fiddling with the horns in the car. I had to hook up after grocery shopping with the four kids in the parking lot and it just wouldn't hook up right on the left side, and I ended up pretty much pulling my whole shirt up to see what the problem was. It's a really busy grocery store parking lot

    I did get this little cape thingy that buttons up the front from Babysteals last week. Wish I could find the link for it to show you guys. It's really cute and it totally covers the horns up. If they offer it again, I'm going to get another one.

    Mr Pump and I just recently got a divorce. I thought I was going to miss him, because he was such a major factor of my life, but I honestly don't. I still have a freezer full of milk that I'm trying to use up . . .

    This anxiety when I have a letdown between pumpings is getting old. I don't need to spend half the day wigging out because I'm not pumping or holding/nursing my baby!

    Yeah me too! Plus I don't have like a private space (family business), and everybody is around (and I hate bathrooms!). My sister is all , what's going on in there!?

    That Medela Mini Electric sure is noisy! Everytime the phone rings everybody says "Yai shhh that thing!"

    My chit chat....
    I gotta say, I hate pumping. I had a break from it for 8 months and just got the horns out this morning to start back up for Lola. Once again I am reminded that all you pumping mamas are queens. QUEENS!
    Hey Colleen - did you guys try the bottle?

    Why is it whenever I pump in the car, some man parks right next to me? Yesterday, I parked in the total boondocks at Walmart, knowing I would need to pump when I was done shopping. I was the only car for about 10 spaces. Sure enough, I'm pumping away and feeding G as he sat in his carseat (I was sitting on Colton's seat and some dude parks right next to me.

    Seriously, that's like the fifth time that's happened!

    OUCH Susan!

    Do you like that bustier? I got the Medela one but I'm taking it back. The large was too big and the medium was way to small.

    Once again I am amazed with all of you EPing mamas. Today was the first day I needed to pump in the am without DH here. It took me 2 hours to find 15 minutes to pump without the toddler unplugging the pump and the baby needing to nurse again.
