The next fun post is brought to you by Lina, the mama behind For Where E'er We Go.
Maryam asked for some guest posts during her vacations the other week on Twitter and I was all, ohmigosh, please pick me. Much to my surprise, she did! And then, I was all, ummm… shoot. Now I feel pressure to write something meaningful.
Instead, I was inspired by the timeless childhood author Dr. Seuss and equally inspired by breastfeeding mamas who are willing to do whatever it takes to nurse or pump breastmilk for their sons and daughters whenever and wherever they are to ensure that baby gets the best food for them.
And so I give you:
Just Like “Green Eggs and Ham”
Oh little one, my sweet boy Sam
You need some milk, my little man.
So I will nurse you here and there,
Yes, I will nurse you everywhere.
I will nurse you on a train,
At the park and in the rain.
We will breastfeed at the gym,
At the zoo and on a whim.
I will nurse you in my bed,
And when ducts are clogged, even on my head!
I will nurse you in a pew;
Jesus nursed and so do you!
I will breastfeed in the car,
Wave at the people – you’re a star!
I will nurse you on a hike,
While at a play and where you like.
We will breastfeed in Target
The seasonal furniture will help you lay!
You can nurse here on the floor,
While I go potty or at Kohls’ Store.
I will nurse while in Confession –
That is quite the pro-life lesson!
I will nurse you here and there,
You can breastfeed anywhere!
And even when I can’t be right there,
I’ll still pump my milk for you anywhere.
I will pump while at my job,
In a closet or at my FOB.
I will pump while driving fast
Because Mama’s milk is made to last.
I will pump when you’re in NICU
Because only Mama’s milk will do.
You so like my milk, my Sam.
Drink it, drink it, here I am!
