Return of the Broccoli

After Deuce weaned himself, I made a tongue-in-cheek list of things I had given up while breastfeeding. In an effort to convince myself I've accomplished something with my life lately, I'd like to revisit.
  1. Wear non-nursing bras (long overdue considering he's only been nursing at night/in the morning for weeks now) Oops. I may have packed all my clothes and not even laid eyes on a regular bra. Where are they???
  2. Put away nursing pajamas I haven't put them away (because the bags of maternity closes are buried in the storage unit, but I did stop wearing them and treated myself to a new summer night shirt.
  3. Go back on real pill Check
  4. Eat broccoli I had no idea how much I like fresh broccoli! Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I suppose.
  5. Eat egg rolls Sadly, a disappointment. Haven't found a Chinese restaurant we love here
  6. Eat reuben sandwiches How did I let this slip by me?
  7. Drink hard liquor One pina colada, one strawberry daquori (sp). Long live frozen drinks in summer!
  8. Other stuff you don't want to know about, but it has to do w/ DeuceDad I don't kiss and tell, but let's just say, Check and Check.
5 of 8. Not so bad. I'm pretty sure that would be a passing grade in public high school, so I'm counting this as a win!

This is a fun list. I'm surprised you had to give up some of those foods. I'm one of *those* nursing Moms who eats and drinks as normal - lots of diet coke, chocolate, beans, gassy foods - I don't drink alcohol, so no change there either!

It's fun to look at the upside of weaning - I found myself kinda sad and emotional when I weaned my first.
