beauxquitah Grief. It's a funny thing. It never truly ends. It ebbs and flows. Sometimes you can see it coming, and other times it comes out of nowhere, sucker punching you in the gut during the most mundane of tasks. One definition calls grief "sharp sorrow." And that's what it is. Sharp. Sorrow. Pain. Sadness. Saturday it will be 18 years since my mom went home to the Lord. My mom used to make me lunch, and whenever she brought over my sandwich, one piece had a small bite out of it. I would usually groan and grin at the same time. I guess she had to make sure it tasted alright and wasn't poisoned(never mind she was the one making it). It's such a fond memory I have of her. And today as I was cutting up G's sandwich (PB&J. Every. Day), grief sucker punched me. In the mundane. Taking a bite out of my son's lunch. #missyoumomma 2w
  •   squaredonut These memories are heart-wrenching in so many ways. I'm so grateful you have those memories and that you can pass it on to your kids, but also it's just HARD to realize that Bitsy is gone and can't take a bite out of the sandwich herself. Because she totally would. :) 2w
  •   jgbutenschoen Oh, Katie. I can only imagine what that grief feels like. And I'm sure although you have had tons of great days since then, it never goes away. How sweet it is that you carry on her memory in such sweet ways! 2w
  •   jgbutenschoen And I'm pretty sure I want to steal that idea because it's the cutest. :) 2w
  •   beauxquitah @jgbutenschoen steal away. My sister calls it the Mommy Tax. And it is not limited to sandwiches. 2w
  •   themillerfive I this. Praying for you today friend. 2w
  •   kkatulka This is so beautiful, Katie. Thank you for sharing 2w
  •   queentimby I always equate it to a dam. It can be strong and hold the ache away. And then something breaks through so a little leak is formed. Then there are things that completely tear it down. So tomorrow, I start building again. The hurt and loss never, ever goes away. Some days it's just a little less right on top. Until the next springy leak. Hugs to you, my friend. And that might be the sweetest tradition ever. 2w
  •   teridufilho i am with you in missing our moms who are in heaven....bless you! 2w

beauxquitah apparently I'm part cow. this is just from one pumping session. and this is why I'll be donating to @texasmilkbank to help out preemies. #breastfeeding #milkdonor #partcow @medela_us 3mon
  •   queentimby Thank you for donating! Alice received donated milk and we were so very thankful! 3mon
  •   mamacase Have you ever looked into renting a hospital grade pump? I've heard it's pretty inexpensive. I've used one once and it was incredible. Both boobs empty in minutes. 3mon
  •   beauxquitah no, I hadn't. I'll look into it. we were on WIC with Gideon, and since I was staying at home this was the free one they gave me. thanks for the tip! 3mon
  •   realhousewiferachel I loved my hand pump early on. Seemed to get out so much more than electric, just took longer. It was the best when I needed to relieve engorgement. You're so awesome! 3mon
  •   jgbutenschoen Holy crap, girl!! Lol wow!! :) 3mon
  •   asmalajmi Wooow thats awesome :) sorry to ask but i am bf my 2 month old and trying to find things to boost my milk supply , do you suggest anything. Thankyou 3mon
  •   texasmilkbank What a beautiful sight! #milkforpreemies 3mon
  •   medela_us Wow! Great job, mama. Thank you for sharing the gift of breastmilk through donation, that's incredible! Keep up the amazing work. 2mon
