Okay, so now that I have your attention...let's talk about relationships.. JUST KIDDING!! This is really about boobs! Seriously let's just talk about these things for a minute...
I was not one of those "early bloomers" who needed a bra by the age of 10. Looking back, that makes me glad (that comes with a whole range of other issues) HOWEVER, I was not a "late bloomer" either. I was the girl who didn't need a bra when she was 20, or 25.. Even when I got pregnant, I thought (*keyword*) that I was va-va-voluptous, and a friend said "Look at how cute you are! And you don't even have any BOOBS!". I was like "yes I do".. Humph. Whatever.
Well, fast forward to NURSING!! The angels sing and big bras come out.. And for one split second (or 12, 14, 16 months- however long you choose to nurse) you are Pamela Anderson. Of course you have a little belly fat as a side dish to the double D's, but do ya really mind? Yeah, me neither.
I was thinking today, it's not at all fair to experience a large "rack" when you weren't really born with it, and it has to go back after you're done nursing. I've contemplated keeping up milk production, but that's way too hard. It would mean burning the motor out on my pump. I am all about nursing for the first year, but I really do NOT want to nurse my kids into puberty. Know what I'm saying? It's so not fair that in a few short months I have to give these back. It's like borrowing a Cadillac for a year knowing that you have to give it back and drive your Smartcar. Sure, the smartcar is cute and all, but it's no Cadillac. Oh, and I forgot to mention that your smartcar is inflatable.. And it's lost some air over the past year. So it needs help to get it "inflated". Thank goodness for whoever invented add-a-size bras. At least you can look good in a t-shirt (yeah YOU, I'm talking to YOU.. I'm not the one with the problem here...)
I guess I can't complain. I follow a blog about a girl who has breast cancer and had a mastectomy.. and what she's going through??? It's awful. I have healthy mammary glands and should just shut up about them..
But seriously... it's not fair about the whole size thing.. *foot stomp, arm cross*
