painting of the day

Louise Nursing Her Child

The paintings Mary Cassatt did of mama's nursing their babes get me everytime! If I miss anything about having a baby in the house it that! Nursing was such a joy for me. I absolutely loved it, even when I felt like a Jersey cow.

"I absolutely loved it, even when I felt like a Jersey cow." What a great line, Tab. Thanks for the chuckle. :-)

I am not one of those moms that LOVES nursing, but it is a joy to know that I am giving my baby the BEST!

Sweet painting:)

Tab- I agree! Yeah there were times I remember feeling like a Jersey cow, but I STILL treasure the years of nursing my babies even though it almost seems like a "lifetime" ago!
That's what I'm talkin abnout when I say that the years go by so fast... even now you have a taste for that truth if you can look back and miss nursing... you'll look back and miss almost everything about your children at the ages they are now. Hard to believe? It's true!!
