"will you breastfeed or i will mix?"

hi all! i just want to share with you something that i find funny recently. well, we have our firstborn now, a daughter, who is almost 4 weeks old. my husband and i are still adjusting to this wonderful addition in our lives. she sleeps with us in our bed, and she is in the middle. anyway, one member here in mylot started a conversation on what is the first thing you say to your lover in the morning. then i got to reminiscing that i would often hug my husband, kiss him, and tell him good morning and i love him, etc. etc. but now with the baby, the first thing he asks is "will you breastfeed or i will mix formula?" he usually wakes up first when the baby cries, then I follow, so that is his usual line for the last 3 weeks or so. but after we have done everything for the baby and she is fast asleep, we try to make time for each other and give each other undivided attention, even if it is just for a few minutes. we do the same routine, hug, kiss, and say sweet words to each other so that we do not neglect our marriage. also, i keep on praying for my husband, much like what i used to when we were still both single. well, i just wanted to share this with you and well, if you have something to share as well, please don't hesitate. take care all and God bless you! happy mylotting! :)

Well I guess things change a little when you have children. Me It has been so long since I had a little one in the house. My kids are 7 and 8 so I almost cannot remember how it was back than. It is great that your husband is helping you like that. I know some women are on their own. To me I think you are very blessed. Take care and happy mylotting to you.
