Everyday I'm Pumpin'emily
Have you ever made plans and then forget about them? Putting them on the back burner of your mind because the event feels like a million days away? And then all of a sudden you wonder where all the time went, and you start to panic because HOLY CRAP HOW IS THAT NEXT WEEK ALREADY?
About two months ago my husband and I scheduled a little getaway weekend for just the two of us. We will be away from the kids for about two and a half days, when we leave the kids with grandma and drive off into the sunset.
And by kids, I mean Paul too.
Just yesterday took frozen milk inventory, and realized Paul might be facing a shortage in his not too distant future. This shortage could have totally been prevented, had I realized just how close the trip really was on our calendar.
So, everyday I’m pumpin’. (sung in my best LMFAO voice)
In hindsight, I had a ton of milk stored up in preparation for the trip, but life threw some unexpected breastfeeding curve-balls my way.
There was the dental work debacle a few weeks ago that left me pumping and dumping, and using up some of the frozen stash I had planned on saving. Then the surprise overnight to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.
So I’m running the breast pumping rat race, and I have a feeling it’s going to come down to a photo finish. The problem is, since he’s breastfed, I’m not even sure how many ounces I will need for 3 days away from him. 25? 30? More than that?
As a precaution, I think I’m going to pack a small container of formula in Paul’s things as backup.
And until then, everyday I’m pumpin’…
