The F word at work: Filing. I've been filing almost my entire day in the office and I'm getting a little stir crazy. Please, phone, please ring. The good part about catch-up-on-filing days is that I make lots of trips to the water cooler.
Now I'm pumping [see photo]. See my little pumping cubicle at work? I only pump about three ounces total these days. I hope that's normal. I haven't seen the same dip in production as I've read is normal for nursing a 13-month-old, but I still worry that weaning is going to come at us before we [I] are ready.
How about that whole Miley Cyrus thing? I didn't even know what the VMA's were until I read everyone's virtual gasps on Facebook the next day. Gross. Sad. The pressure is on for us moms of daughters to teach them that they don't have to behave poorly or dress inappropriately for attention. And... does anyone else think the guy in the referee suit kind of looked like a child molester?
Speaking of dressing inappropriately, in my efforts to mix up the office wardrobe without buying any new clothes I wore a dress to work today that I haven't worn in a long time -- only to be reminded of why I haven't worn it in a long time. I forgot that it's super low cut, and the front of it rides down lower and lower over the course of the day. All day I've been super self conscious, a fly on the wall might have seen me walking down the halls carrying a binder or my breast pump bag in front of my chest.
I think might be losing my hearing in my left ear. I say this because I've had a couple of ear infections over the last six months or so, and it regularly clogs up for no apparent reason, and for the last few days I have had about 50% hearing capability in that ear, with some sticking and clicking, but no pain. If it gets worse I will go see a doctor but I'm hoping it subsides on its own and I can wait until the next time it acts up to go do anything about it.
In other news, I'm late to the party but I've installed Snap Chat on my iPhone. What a fun time...
And finally, I'm getting to see not one, not two, but THREE sweet little tiny babies in a three day period. I got to see my BFF's one-week-old baby Jack on Sunday to do some newborn/family portraits for them (will share a few soon)(remember I did their maternity photos?), then last night my friend and rockin' female vocalist brought her two-month-old baby Tonio to band practice (we have some super awesome events coming up!), and tonight I am going to the hospital to see my dear friend Steffi and two-day-old baby Henry. I'm simply giddy to get all this squishy baby time all in one week!
