I CAN’T BELIEVE I DIDN’T POST THIS IMMEDIATELY.
ELIZABETH PEED ON THE POTTY.
FOR THE VERY FIRST FUCKING TIME, ELIZABETH PEED ON THE POTTY.
SO like earlier remember when I told you that we played in her little pool? A lot of times I don’t even bother with a fucking swim diapers and she just wears some shorts without a diaper. This was one of those times. When she came in she didn’t want a diaper (she’s like that sometimes) so I said fuck it. She went to spend time snuggling my brother and after a while came to find me and Casey in the room. She was walking funny so I figured she had to go so I just had her sit on the potty, because she generally WILL sit on it for a minute before crying for a diaper.
To be honest, Casey and I were in the middle of an argument so I wasn’t paying attention at first. She was just chilling on the potty and then she randomly got up to just look in it and since we were arguing, it didn’t register. She sat back down and then she got up again and told us, “There’s juice in there.”
Of course I’m like “wtf” and I look and sure enough there’s fucking pee in the potty. She fucking peed. And called it juice.
Casey and I just stopped and congratulated her and then we went and ate at DQ to get her ice cream as a reward. I’m freaking out. She peed for the first time and we were able to positively reinforce it.
HOPEFULLY THIS IS THE REAL BEGINNING GUYS.
Elizabeth was acting like Ariel earlier. She got all her fake jewelery and gem stones and was talking about how she had all her stuff and how she was mad at Casey. And then she comes in our room with her stuff on and she said, “I’m sixteen!” and kept saying it and she said she was mad at daddy, and she was gonna run away because she’s “sixteen.”
It was adorable.
I respect the right to feed a child in public.
Whether it be breast milk or formula.
Through a bottle or from the tap.
Covered or uncovered.
I respect you, as the mother or the father to feed your child, no matter their age, no matter how you do it.
Elizabeth and I played her little pool for a bit and we had fun. We had a whole little adventure with her toys. She loves playing with the villain.
So when it comes to wipes I am ridiculously picky. I ALWAYS buy Parent’s Choice - the sensitive, real cloth ones. But if I’m in a situation where I NEED some right then and there are no others, I get Pampers Sensitive. I had to do that last night and I just used them on Elizabeth and she looks at them and goes, “HEY! Those aren’t mine!”
What’s awesome about Leesha being so young is that it’s allowed her to really BECOME Elizabeth’s cat and she really loves her the most. She’ll just chill in her room while Elizabeth plays, regardless of if the door is open (unless she’s in her hyper mode and needs to run around lol).
Nahh pretty sure theres more wrong with the world than me having an opinion. Get this through your scull: I have NO PROBLEM with breastfeeding. None. But if you’re gonna do something in public, have some decency. No matter what it is. It’s called respect. Some people don’t wanna see boobs hangin out when their walking around. GET OVER IT. No, they’re not pervs or indecent people. They just don’t want your lack of respect and personal choices SHOVED IN THEIR FACE (wether you like it or not it’s what you’re doing) BECAUSE YOU WANT EVERYONE TO CATER TO YOU. Thats not how the world works honey. Have some respect, have some decency, have some modesty, put your damn boobs away.
It sounds like you actually want people to cater to your own lack of respect and personal choice to shame other women for feeding their own children. Live and let live, honey. You’ll be much happier in life. Don’t be a mean brat.
couldn’t have said it better. it takes a certain amount of maturity to understand that the female anatomy is not disrespectful and tha ti doesn’t need to be hidden and covered. that breastfeeding can be as public s the mom wants. it’s been around alot longer than the stuck up morals this girl is trying to preach.Ok, no breastfeeding mother is shoving their choice to FEED THEIR CHILD in stranger’s faces. Women do not walk up to people and just shove boobies all up in their face. YOUR personal comfort is NOT the responsibility of anyone but yourself, and there’s a REALLY simple solution if you’d prefer not to see uncovered public breastfeeding: LOOK AWAY. Nobody is making you stare at a breastfeeding mother, and it’s rude on your part to do so. Mother’s have an obligation to feed their child, not cater to your personal comfort. Using a cover or blanket is definitely not ideal for some mother’s/babies. They’re a fucking hassle, and a lot of babies will pull them off or fidget with them because holy shit eating under a fucking hot stuffy blanket is totally not comfortable at all. Especially in summer. If a woman decides to use a cover or blanket that is HER decision. If a woman decides not to use a cover, that is also HER decision. YOU are not involved in that decision, sorry. What makes you think you’re so fucking important that you think YOU should be taken into consideration when a mother is trying to feed her child? A baby’s need to eat trumps your “need” to be respected BY A STRANGER because you don’t want to see boobs. In my state (and most states actually), a mother can breastfeed her child ANYWHERE SHE IS LEGALLY ALLOWED TO BE. So if you don’t want to see boobs, maybe you should just stay home cause you never know where you may be around a hungry baby. Women do not breastfeed to display their boobs. They breastfeed to feed their child. They’re not doing it to offend you. Some women are confident and don’t give a fuck about breastfeeding their kid in public, but some women are scared to do so because of people like you who think your comfort is more important than a mother feeding their child. As someone who struggled with breastfeeding my first child, I WILL be breastfeeding my next child UNCOVERED ANYWHERE I FUCKING PLEASE. And if anyone wants to come spout this bullshit off to me, I will take them to fucking school. My kid is more important than you, sorry not sorry. Breastfeeding mothers do NOT need to cater to YOU, that’s not how the world works honey ;)
