Dodgy Meh, Mamma!


Bryn has begun to display one of Dave's personality quirks... He gets pissed off by inaminate objects that aren't doing what he expects them to do in the time frame he has deemed reasonable (usually that timeframe is about 5.3 seconds)...

How is this particular personality quirk expressing itself? Well, he get impatient on the boob. It seems he thinks I have dodgy boobs (better known as Meh in this household), that don't "let down" fast enough. His solution to this rather serious and annoying problem is to grunt loudly and impatiently and kick his legs furiously while simultaneously tugging at my nipple with his clenched gums...

Now, why he thinks THAT is going to encourage let down, I don't know... I personally find it rather distracting and uncomfortable, which to my mind would mean I probably tense up (even while practicing relaxing breathing techniques to encourage let down), thereby stalling let down...

Is this a male thing? The belief that if something is not co-operating, being obnoxious and roughing the inanimate object up a bit will ensure compliance?

Who knows, meanwhile Bryn seems to just be getting himself all wound up and not really helping the situation much with all his tugging and grunting - maybe he thinks the boob is ignoring him, and so a few quick tugs with clenched gums will snap it out of its haze... Thank goodness he doesn't have teeth yet!!!

love that gorgeous photo... and I have to say I laughed when I read that you think our breasts are inanimate objects.... perhaps it is just me but I am sure mine have a mind of their own! :)
