Offending the Unwashed Masses is One of My Favorite Pastimes
Puritans be warned: this post may disturb you.
I mean it! If you can't bear the sight of an adorable newborn baby eating contentedly, hit the back button, quick!
Are you still there?
Read my post!
Made me feel like posting an image I never thought I'd publish, and not just because it's embarassingly out-of-focus (although it is):
Take that, nursing-haters. I flash my boob at you! In a grainy filtered out-of-focus photo that shows even less flesh than the one on the cover of BabyTalk, which, incidentally, showed a lot less flesh than one ordinarily might expect to see on the cover of Vogue.
This the one and only photograph I ever took of my son while nursing. It was hidden away on my hard drive, a nameless numbered file in a nameless numbered folder. Left there because I hesitated to put it in with the baby photos to be developed at the store.
I had to look through several folders of photos to find it. But I'd never forgotten taking it. I knew it was there.
Suddenly, seeing those beautiful, contented newborn eyes again, I find myself wishing I had taken more pictures like this one.
