I Feel Like I’m Forgetting Something
Today, for the first time in over a year, I didn’t bring my breast pump to work.
I actually took it out to the car with me thinking that maybe I should bring it just in case - kind of like a security blanket.
But then I decided that was sentimental and silly.
I may be sentimental and silly by nature but the appeal of carrying one less piece of baggage in the car, on the train, and on my walk far outweighs sentimentality.
Still, I feel like this is a mommy milestone that is both bittersweet and liberating (as many Mumblers have expressed before).
