Thanks to lots of encouragement from my own mother, I finally got the nerve to nurse in public. I never thought I'd be "that Mom," but here I am. I believe her exact words were, "Rach, you've got to get used to just whipping it out!" So, during a minor league baseball game, I found a corner where I could be very discreet about the whole thing and...I whipped it out - then promptly covered it up with a blanket and prayed that the little girl could do what she needed to do without a whole lot of help from me. And she did! It felt really good to know that I can now go where ever I want and my child won't starve to death.
Mom invaded our little corner long enough to snap a photo - check out those adorable baby socks!
I'm Rachael. My occupations include, in this order: daughter, sister, friend, teacher, wife, and mother. I may seem like a grown up, but don't be fooled - I have no idea what I'm doing. We have lots of family around the world, so this blog is our way of saying, "Here's what's going on in our little corner."
