Bring it!

Okay. So thanks for all the encouragement, and great ideas. I have actually been implementing a few of them...and I am making some progress. Slowly but surely! Hang tight for an announcement later on!

So, here we are...it's Friday again. Another opportunity for me to link up with MiMi and share with you another laughable moment from my life.

So y'all know I went to Girls' Camp last week. (sniff, sniff - my last hoorah). It was a stake girls' camp which meant that several other wards were up there with us. We had our own campsite, but shared bathrooms, and did some activities with the other wards.

One evening one of the other leaders and I were walking down to the bathrooms, and she was telling me how she was uncomfortable, because she was still breastfeeding her youngest, and she hadn't gone this long without nursing. This got us into a big long discussion about breastfeeding. We got to the bathrooms, and I went to open the middle stall. It was locked. I knocked. No answer. We decided that they had locked that one, because the toilet had been having trouble flushing all day.

So we each went into a stall on either side (3 stalls were in the bathroom). We continued our breastfeeding conversation as we both tended to our business - basically shouting back and forth across the stalls. I got out first. As I walked out of my stall, I heard the lock on the middle stall open...

Out walks this mortified looking Young Woman...probably a Beehive (12 year-old). She looked sheepishly at me and walked out the bathroom door.

I waited until I knew she was out of earshot before busting up laughing!

I know. I'm special. You all wish you could go to Girls' Camp with me...don't you?

I LOVE those Korker Bows!!
Okay, I bet that 12 year old is like, "Wow. I'm NEVER having kids now." LOL!
Okay, off to bed for reals now!

Well maybe the 12 year old will stay on track & not have babies before she is good & ready! HA! I am still nursing my littlest too & we went to the fair the other night & with all that was going on I miss a feeding... one stinking feeding & oh my gosh I had the worst blocked milk duct. I love that I am great at nursing but geesh give me a break, this happens every time I am not on the normal schedule. What in the world is it going to be like when I ween her. Yikes!
Yay on the store, I love all your stuff. I'm really really tempted to order a few fun things for my sister but first I have to find out if her new one will have hair. :)

I am so glad to see Ribbon Blossoms back. I loved all the new stuff....the little bumblebee bows were precious.

shortmama said...

You probably scarred that girl for life!

Cant wait for your re-launch! How exciting!

Sami said...

You ruined a Beehive!!! TOO FUNNY!!! My sister and I were talking about breast feeding and sore nipples at my other sister's wedding. I think that may be part of why she decided to use birth control for a while...

On another note:
Do you give discounts for big orders? I want to get my girls a bunch of cute bows to put in their stockings, but I see my husband's head exploding if I went too crazy...ya know what I mean?

I want to go to Girl's Camp with you!!! I think you just did that little Beehive a favor...early breastfeeding education. :)

YAY for you. Relaunching your store is awesome!!!

Miss you!! Hope you're having a great week!!♥♥
