Mourning The End Of Breastfeeding To Embrace Toddlerhood

Mourning The End Of Breastfeeding To Embrace Toddlerhood

When I first found out I was pregnant with Sebastian, breastfeeding was the one thing I knew I wanted to do. It wasn’t really an option, more of a given. I was given the ability to birth children and to feed them from my body, so why would I do it any other way? As all good plans go, that did not work out for me. I don’t know if it was the C-Section, jaundice, a possible undiagnosed lip-tie, but for whatever reason, I just could not keep up production for him. It wasn’t for lack of trying because I was constantly attached to a machine or a child, and I still just did not have enough. Finally, after months of around the clock trying I said enough and I threw in the towel.

Proud Preschool Graduate

Proud Preschool Graduate

My son just had his preschool graduation last week and he was such a proud preschool graduate! He was truly beaming and I was saddened by the whole thing because my little boy is growing up. He always, tells me, “But mama! everyone grows up and gets bigger! I have to get bigger too!” and I always tell him, “I know, but I don’t want you to grow up so fast!” It really does seem like time is just passing us by and it’s all happening a little too quickly for me.

Solo parenting  toddlers is the most difficult thing I’ve ever done

Solo parenting toddlers is the most difficult thing I’ve ever done

My husband has been on a lot of business trips lately leaving me to care for our two young children all by myself. As a stay at home mom, I had come to rely on him coming home from work so I can receive some downtime and do things like shower alone, use the restroom without an audience, or just be able to go to Starbucks without the kids in tow and decompress. So when he’s not here for an extended period of time, like he has been lately, it really wears on me, especially since my youngest is not quite two yet and is very attached to me.

And just like that, he’s gone again

And just like that, he’s gone again

Yesterday my husband left again for another 3 weeks. As I mentioned recently, he’s away on business trips with his company helping to upgrade the phone systems on cruise ships. We had just gotten him back the previous week and this past Sunday we drove to the airport and dropped him off.

My Husband is Home

My husband is home! If you read my last post about Mother’s Day, then you know my husband has been gone for 3 weeks. He was away on business and finally returned this past weekend. The kids couldn’t be more excited, but we only have him for the next week because he needs to leave again for another 3 weeks this weekend so we are going to enjoy him while we can.
