Fall brings us not only a change of seasons, but a change of rhythm.

Gone are the slow Summer days. The lazy days with decisions as big as going to the pool or not. Pink suit or blue. Hot dog or nachos. Summers are easy on the mind and full of white calendar days.

But Fall is here.

I love Fall. I love schedules.

But Fall is kicking me in the ass this time. Schedules kind of suck with a newborn. Newborns want snuggle time, down time, nursing time.

There are times when I am driving to and from school, to and from ballet, to and from violin, to and from friends, to and from Target, that I wonder if it is legal to nurse and drive and consider it briefly, as being a woman-multitasker, it would help my Fall load immensely.

So as I am Falling this Fall and trying to keep my head above water with my delicious schedules and red calender days. I need to thank my baby for making me stop 8 times a day and release my mind and my body to nurse and take time to breath.

xoxo, t

It's called maternity leave, and some women get up to 6 months. Why is it that SAHM's don't get maternity leave? I think it would be very nice if all a SAHM had to do for 6 months was nurse her infant and read stories or play board games with her other children. It would be very nice.

I am so thankful for my breastfeeding time b/c it forces me to STOP and just be with my baby. I am also a multitasker!

Love the picture of your esther she is so pretty in that picture.
