As in: why don't I just dump the pump, supplement during the day, and continue my morning, evening, and weekend BF with the kid? Why can't I let it the eff go?
Probably because my own nutritional habits are abhorent. Really shameful these days. And throughout life? Well, just look at photos of me - it's pretty clear healthy eating (and exercise) weren't exactly my top considerations, with the exception of a short span of time. But with my kid? She CAN eat organically. She CAN have only natural stuff. She doesn't have a Diet Coke habit. She doesn't worry about artificial sweeteners (to be clear, I don't worry about them either). I know I'll cave and let the kid eat some unhealthy crap soon enough. There will be McNuggets. I hope there won't be many. But for now, she can have something real.
And I still wake up each day with the dream that it will suddenly be easy.
And I never quit that soccer team where the coach called me the weakest link (yeah, if you follow through with the metaphor, his point gets lost, but...). I have a hard time dropping things. I think this is more beneficial than law school, though.
