mmm . . . decaf lattes

I filled out an application to be on the Dr. Phil show. The theme of the show is NIP (nursing in public) which is a pretty hot topic in the news lately. Apparently people are disgusted by the thought that mamas would actually feed their babies in public places (gasp! the horror!). Who know I would become a breastfeeding advocate every time I fed my daughter in public? Of course, if it came right down to it, I am sure I would be much too scared to actually appear on a television show, but it's a fun idea.

Today Iris and I shopped at University Village. It's an outdoor mall that apparently attracts a great deal of stay-at-home moms during the day. I toted her around in the sling, nursed her next to a fountain and shared a smoothie and a muffin at Starbucks. It felt a little silly to be one of those moms who drag their child around on a shopping excursion.

I also discovered that decaf lattes are my new best friend. I have truly become a wimp. I can't drink caffeine without spending the rest of the day jittery!

In other news I am getting serious about losing the rest of the "baby weight". It makes me feel better to call it that, but I know it's not just from having a baby. Today I started by sharing my oreos instead of eating them all myself :)
