Grudge Tuesday: The Grudge That Wouldn't Be

Mother and Child
Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
I have been waiting to grudge about my father for awhile because I didn't want to have every grudge be about my family. This is the man that hasn't cared to meet my children, his only grandchildren, until recently. Like today, for example, he met my oldest son for the first time. They got along well. It was pretty uneventful. Thank goodness a four-year-old doesn't know how weird it is that he had never met his grandfather — a grandfather that lives in the same town! The baby got to meet dear ol' dad a little earlier because he was allowed to go to the reconnecting-after-six-years dinner, since he is still a wee bairn attached to my boob. Hey, at least my father has always been pro breastfeeding. Anyway, it's a long weird story about generational dysfunction, which I won't bore you with. But, damn him for taking the wind out of my grudge.

Grudge Tuesday: Got Booby Milk?

This is a short, but sweet milky one today.

Note: Due to an unfortunately high rate of google searches for nursing images I've removed this photo. Thanks again for everyone's support, especially Julie at Fricknits for emailing Delta.

Did you read the one about the woman who got kicked off an airplane in Vermont for refusing to cover up her nursing toddler? Yep, I read that in today's paper. Can you believe it? A flight attendant told the mother, "You are offending me." What kind of woman hating is that? What's with the residual Puritanical bull pucky? I could go on for days, but I won't. I'm posting this photo for the woman on the plane and for all breastfeeding mamas. It should be culturally acceptable for women to breastfeed in public. The more people see it the more normal it will become. So if you got it, flaunt it. And, of course you could always email a complaint to Delta Airlines.

Thanks to Gwendomama for reminding me it is Grudge Tuesday and for the inspiration. Hey, I just saw she already posted on this subject. Why isn't my Bloglines updating?
