Things I have done while breastfeeding

In the last 48 hours, while breastfeeding I have:

*Watched television

*Read a book

*Pacified my mother's pathologically jealous dog with some face stroking

*Fallen asleep

*Practiced meditative breathing and states of mind

*Contemplated the alternating blond and black hairs sprouting from the crown of my baby's head

*Compiled in my head a list of breastfeeding commandments beginning with Thou Shalt Not Bite

*Wrote poetry in my mind

*Sang along to Serbian rock songs on the radio (of which my favourite goes (Don't worry, I have no evil intentions/ You're just a shoulder to cry on; which is a fairly apt description of every relationship I had between the ages of 16 and 23)

*Read my friends list

*Sat in a cafe

*Made small talk with people who stared fixedly into my eyes

*Answered the door

*Greeted the postman (I thought he was my mother)

*Walked down a flight of stairs, taken the elevator, wrangled open the door, given Z his watch, kissed him goodbye as he left for the airport, walked to the elevator, walked up a flight of stairs, succesfully inserted keys and opened door of the apartment and gratefully sank down onto the sofa (a testament to my biceps and my child's determination to feed).

*Thought longingly of the time when my child's nourishment would come from pots.
