Wore this to church a couple weeks ago but I've worn this outfit plllenty of times before that. Loose untucked shirt for easy access to the boob? CHECK. Loose skirt because summer sucks? CHECK. It's like once I became a mom, I've given up on anything form-fitting and that has zippers, which is like half of my closet. Pre-baby Elaine didn't know what was up. I should've warned her.
I breastfed Grey (WITH A COVER) during church the same day I wore this outfit and got the ultimate stare-down from a high-up-there church leader. Even though I want to believe he was staring because he was proud of me for doing something so simple yet controversial in the house of the Lord, I'm pretty sure his stares were those of disapproval.
In most of the Mormon church buildings, there's a private room called the "Mother's Lounge," which is basically a closet with two gross chairs and maybe a counter for diaper-changing... and I hate it. I feel disconnected and isolated to have to go in a separate room to do something as simple as FEED my BABY.
