My mother always used to say (okay, she still does) that I am always trying to save the world. Now, my husband says it too. Oh, and my best friend and one time, a college professor. It takes me by surprise every time. It is hard to recognize when my emotions are not tied... to me. When I get upset because I hear a mother in a restaurant tell her 5 year old to "Shut up", when I cry because the TV show I am watching is dedicated to someone who died or when I lose sleep because the grasshopper on my sidewalk has a hurt leg. (Leg? Hmm...). It is not really me that I am sad for, it is them. I want to fix the grasshoppers leg, send a card to the TV grip that lost his step-aunt and give the mom at the restaurant a copy of Connection Parenting to read. Not just lend her my copy. No. GIVE her a copy, buy her a copy. This is my rant today because I am having a hard time balancing work and home. I LIKE to work. I like to scan posts on Facebook and SAVE women from their breastfeeding, co-sleeping, poopie diaper obstacles and set the world right again. I want to have all the answers for everyone. If you think about it, Cookies, Then Milk! Lactation Cookies, is just one more way to save the world! I want every woman to be able to breastfeed. I want her to enjoy it, treasure it and never struggle a single day with her supply. I have recently added Gluten Free, Organic and other mixes to my available options so that every mom can find help through my Lactation Cookies and other products. If there is a need that you have, please ask. As long as I spend time with my family and pay my bills, of course, sleep can wait. =) After all, saving the world is an awfully big job.
