You know you're Postpartum

(and also what's known hereabouts as Stupid Tired) when you have this moment of total panic: "Where did I leave the baby?!?" and then you realize that he's snoring in the front pack 5 inches under your chin.

I do that very thing and my baby's just over a year.

It could be worse . . . could be raining. ;)

My sister did the same thing, and then realized said baby was nursing as she walke around chasing boys 1 and 2.

Gauntlets: Are you taunting me? We're on day 2 of rain. Horizontal rain. :P

MM--ha! too true! Baby 1: you need to be in your special chair, with pillows arranged just so or Boppy, and quiet privacy, to nurse. Baby 2: you get used to nursing under less-than-perfect circumstances. Baby 3: You're running across the yard yelling after the other two, with the new one hanging on for dear life, trying to get a little nutrition there.

Taunting? No, no. Totally not in my nature. ;)

Actually, I'm quoting from a movie, a family favorite. Guess the source and I'll send you a prize.

Hey, that picture you paint? The Baby 3 hanging on whilst you run after the Babies 1 and 2 picture? That picture gets me through the day. Ha! Good picture. :)

What I get for complaining: the rain turned to snow (but it melted again).

Young Frankenstein? Is this something we should see? But I'm guessing that googling the quote disqualifies me for prize purposes. Guess I'll just have to be content with sunshine and above-freezing temps.
