Last night was a rough night for me. I got not so good news not once but twice.
Hubby decided after Lael's (indoor) T-ball game, to take me and the girls out to eat to cheer me up.
Before we went to eat we stopped at Wal-Mart.
We entered the store and turned the corner. As we walked past the checkout aisle I completely stopped walking as did Lael.
I saw something. Something that I've seen many many times but never in this place.
Something I think is completely fine but not in the way I saw it.
I saw a boob. I fully uncovered, nipple and all boob. There was a lady breastfeeding her baby in the checkout line and she completely pulled down her tank top and whipped out her boob.
Ok, before I go any further I just want to say I have NO OBJECTIONS with breastfeeding in public. What I do have a problem with is having no discretion. I've had to feed Lael a few times and simply covered her with some type of blanket.
However, this woman did not. Lael stared in shock and I pushed her forward. After gathering myself we continued through the store and we made our way back to the checkout. Surprisingly, she was still there! And this time I had the pleasure of seeding her pull the baby off her left boob. Whip out her right boob. Chit chat for a few seconds while it just completely hung out. Latching the baby on the right boob and and then after a minute or so decided she should but the left one away.
I didn't know what to think. I had never seen this done before.
All I can say is it sure "perked" up my spirits!
What are your views on it?
