The Schwartz's vs Awkward Nursing Mom Moments

Cody and I are still fighting the good fight.  He's falling off the growth chart and I know we've got to switch him probably within a month, but while we can we do.

 I don't often nurse in front of Sarah.  Not because I don't want her to see it but because Cody is so busy and has ADD!  He gets distracted by the strap on my bra and will pop off to play with it and then doesn't want to pop back on.  So if he hears his sister there is no way he wants to nurse.  He just wants to sit up and look at her and talk to her.

That being said, she's getting a little older and starting to pay a little more attention to what Mommy and Cody are doing.  Here's a collection of funny/cringe worthy/awkward things she's said and done recently.

*  I pump twice a day.  Once in the morning single side (to make his evening bottle) and once in the evening double side (to freeze).  The other morning I got the bottle and pump stuff put together than put it on the couch while I went to get a glass of water.  I came back and Sarah had her shirt up and the pump on her stomach and looked and me and said, "I'm making a bottle".
* Sarah sat on the couch and put one of her baby dolls up next to her chest and threw a blanket over them and said, "I'm feeding Belle."
* Cody was crying and Sarah turned to me and said, "Cody's hungry.  Feed him mommy!" and started pulling up my shirt.
* Sunday Sarah looked at me and said, "I'm hungry mommy".  So I said, "ok, sweetie, let's go make you a sandwich."  Her response, "No mommy, I want to eat under your shirt."   Chris thought that was hilarious.  Me, not so much.

Should I have shared these for the whole world to see...probably not.  But Chris and I laugh about them a lot right now so I thought it was worth writing it down.


  1. That is hilarious!! I laughed out loud at all of those. And p.s. your children don't always have to coordinate clothing. Probably best for the professional pictures but while at home, anything goes! haha

  2. I must have not seen a picture of your little kids lately because WOW they are getting so dang CUTE!

    And yes, nursing. ah nursing. so glad it's over.
