I'm sorry I haven't posted anything in almost a week! I have been busy, but I have also been writing up reviews and a giveaway! So be sure to check back soon!
Anyways - I just needed to say that tonight was my first night out WITHOUT the boys!
I am a TERRIBLE pumper, and the way Graham eats - well, I don't get to get out without him. Tonight on the other hand was different.
My Mum and Dad are in town for a few days and we planned a dinner out to the Keg for Sunday, so on Friday I started pumping. I got NOTHING! NOTHING!! Saturday - Chris took the boys to their play group at the Rec Centre. Graham was an angel - not a peep from him. I tried pumping and got about two ounces. Not a lot - but I knew with the other two ounces I had stashed away - that was an ok bottle.
Then today I tried pumping again. I didn't get a lot at all - maybe an ounce and a half. So total MAYBE 5.5 ounces. It's better than nothing. I thought if I nursed him before he went to his Nana's I may be able to get away for a couple of hours and I had my mini stash just in case.
I nursed him like I planned - and off they went. I was so nervous. I hate leaving them. Even if its for a couple of hours. I packed a couple different brands of bottles and my measly 5.5 ounces of breast milk, and hoped to God he would make it through.
We went to dinner (Must say, it was DELICIOUS!) and returned home almost 3 hours later. My Mother in Law brought the boys home and told me that Graham had one little crying fit - and it wasn't because he was hungry.
*Wait a second - you meant to tell me that I still have my 5.5 ounces of gold left??*
OH.MY.GOODNESS! I did it! I went out and had an adult night - and adult 3 hours with my husband and my parents.
I missed my boys like crazy, but I have to say it was so so SO freakin' good to get out.
Anyways - I just wanted to write that down. I am going to continue to try and pump - and freeze whatever I get - even if its not a lot.
