My Thoughts Exactly

I just MUST share this greeting card that I saw in the store the other day...it seems now that they make cards for every.single.occasion. It gets a bit excessive (get well cards for the dog, etc.) but I LOVED the saying on this card for new moms.


"Whoever said 'There's no use crying over spilled milk' obviously never pumped 6 ounces, then accidentally dumped it."

The inside of the card reads: "Hang in there. You're doing fine." Whether you nurse or bottle-feed, doesn't this just perfectly convey the feeling of utter emotional havoc that a newborn brings to a Mom?? Such a beautiful, [hormonal] time :)

This was a Hallmark "Edge of Motherhood" card. I purchased both that were in stock and sent one the very next day! It just hits the nail on the head...kudos, Hallmark. Gave me a good laugh.

haha! that's definitely not the only thing we cry over in those first few days, but it certainly does sum up that feeling!

Funny and spilled breastmilk is a PERFECT reason to cry. Whether you're 2 days post partum or 15 months. :)
The stuff is liquid gold!
