So I have been thinking lately. I want to have a career. Now I don't mean let someone else raise my children kind of thing, and I am not sure I would actively work. But I think I want something to really be able to fall back on.
I have thought and thought and thought, and what I think I would really enjoy is to become a lactation consultant. Now I really love my Scentsy business, and I do not plan on stopping that. But with the military moving us every few years, and it's not like my little bear is going to stay little forever.....So I would like to be able to do something while he is in school someday. And in order to do that I need to get things like schooling and training out of the way now so that I can work when I want to later.
Now I know lots of people opened up a few cans of venom at me when I blogged about women doing nurse-in's. And my opinion still has not changed on the subject. I don't agree with nurse-ins. I think they are a waste of time and spread the wrong kind of feeling and point. Now I do agree that women should be able to nurse in public. And I do think they should be able to do so with a cover. I am not saying they have to cover but with enough creepy people out in the world today. Just cover up that special moment between you and your baby and don't let the perverts and creeps in the world intrude on that moment. I once heard someone say that seeing a woman's fully exposed breast while nursing was like a train wreck they just couldn't not look at it and stare. Now to me that made that person sound like a dork. But none the less that is what I am talking about. I would personally not like that weirdo looking at me. Women should not have to nurse in a bathroom, but man it sure is nice when a business provides a nursing area for Mama's to be able to kick off their shoes, lean back, relax and rest while Baby gets a little snacky snack. Now that is in the world where you only have one child as well. Because little bobby isn't going to allow for some quiet me time while nursing janey. lol Oh the joys of motherhood. ha ha ha ha
But back to the real topic. I want to help the Mama who has a hard time trying to nurse their little. I want to help both Mama and baby get that connection. Or even for the seasoned Mama who nursed all her other kids and for some reason this new little won't latch. I want to be able to help her.
So here is to my journey of figuring out what I need to do, what needs to happen, and getting the ball rolling.
