no more milk

I know it's kind of crazy, but I have not been able to bring myself to throw away the last bag of frozen breast milk...it's WAY expired (since I pumped it in 2005!) but has just been a happy little memento that I would notice every so often when I opened the freezer. Kind of weird, I know. Anyway, today I'm tossing it with a slightly heavy heart...I did, however, get to have a great discussion about breastfeeding with my youngest, since it's really his milk I'm getting rid of.

(Assuming your milk is a bit more current, here are guidelines for storage)

Hi Kim, We had the chance to meet many moons ago through Lady Jensen and I wanted to say how much I love your blog. I was a big follower and fan of your through the MotherHood mags that DJ gave me! Finally, after many years of trying, my husband and I are pregnant. It's still early but we have never been THIS FAR on the journey. I wanted to reach out to you because I have been thinking of some of your advice and may have questions along the way. I also wanted to say CONGRATS on your amazing family, and pursuing your passion. I too have a blog- http://www.romancingthestone.wordpress.com. It's about finding love at 40 and the journey to motherhood. Bless you! Michele

Thanks Kim! I remember DJ saying that you had great ideas on strong, feminine rituals that could be celebrated at a baby shower. I want to learn more from you when the time gets closer....I hope you don't mind if I pick your brain. After this long journey to become a mom at 42, I will not be letting people wrap toilet tissue around my waist or eat baby food at a shower. Looking for something more meaningful.
