got some things to tell you today.
went to visit my new neighbor Diana today. She has two children B3, and Z1, and is a stay
at home mom like myself. My friend Kathy was over there with her two children too. Dianna
and Kathy know each other from church and have been friends for sometime. Since Kathy was
going to be in town today we decided to all get together and let the kids play and get
The first time I met Diana, I wasn't sure if
I was going to like her as a neighbor or not. Today after spending a few hours with her I
realized we really have a lot in common and that she is really excited about us being
neighbors. Our children are all around the same age and will probably be the best of
friends. Diana also informed me of all the gossip and all the dirt on our surrounding
I was informed today that one of my neighbors
has an automatic rifle and blocked off our street threatening to shoot people with it
because the gas company painted on his grass. This guy appears to be really nice. He is a
stay at home dad, volunteers, and has a really nice yard. Obvioulsy though he is mentally
ill and not only sits out in his yard with this very large gun but has been seen peering
into peoples windows. Several neighbors have complained and are intimidated by him. I'm
glad we are getting that alarm system Jeff wanted, and hopefully the privacy fence will be
put up with in a couple of weeks of us moving in.
While I was at Diana's, Kathy's
husband Rick came over to eat lunch with all of us. We sat around talking about the
neighborhoods and when their house would be finished. (It is getting built on the street
behind us.) Then all the sudden rick blurts out "Kathy your mom has been
breastfeeding the baby."
I was holding the baby at the
time, and my jaw fell open. I lloked at Kathy who was stunned. I then looked at Rick and
said "Stop joking like that."
"I'm not joking, I walked
in on her while Kathy was at a demonstration." He paused a moment, "I just
couldn;t hold back anymore, I had to tell someone."
Kathy had been complaining the
last few weeks that the baby had not been latching on very good and had asked me for
advice. The baby is three months old, and has been an established nurser so I thought it
had been something she was eating making her milk taste funny.
"Rick I can't believe you
just blurted this out in front of my friends!" Kathy yelled at him.
"I thought it would be
better to tell you this way."
"Have you lost your mind?!
I feel like I'm going to throw-up." Kathy collapsed into a chair."Why didn;t you
say something to her?"
"I was stunned, and then
she went on to say she was doing it to pacify the baby." Rick was looking to me and
Diana, with pleading looks of help.
*** A little background, after
the sell of Kathy and Rick's house they moved in with her mother while the new house is
being built. They have been living there since the baby was two weeks old.***
Kathy looked at me, "Kim
could this be why the baby isn't latching on and acting like she doesn't want to
I was having flashbacks of the
Hand That Rocks the Cradle. "Ummm, well," I was hesitating with my answer.
"I can't believe
this!" Kathy excliamed. "This is sick, this is not natural."
I sat there not knowing what to
say. Kathy was asking me for advice, Rick was just stareing at me for an answer. I finally
said, "I think you should move."
