Motherhood: I now consider it a great accomplishment, accompanied by some peace of soul, to have showered, dressed, put my contacts in, and fed the baby three times by 10 in the morning. Some days, I accomplish all that, minus showering, dressing and contacts.
Books I've read or am reading while nursing: On Becoming Baby Wise, Gary Ezzo & Robert Bucknam; The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, La Leche League; Five Red Herrings, The Documents in the Case, and another one I can't remember by Dorothy Sayer; Mistletoe from Purple Sage by Barbara Burnett Smith, and The Marriage Sabbatical by Cheryl Jarvis. Sorry, no classics at this point. I am thinking about starting Bullfinch's Mythology, so I can understand all those references to mythology in modern literature... References that educated people are either supposed to understand or pretend they understand.
