Breastpump Haikus

So I'm enjoying being a stay at home mom so far. I keep pretty busy, though it doesn't seem like I get anything done lol....just sit on the couch and nurse. Since this is pretty mindless activity, I have to entertain myself somehow--today it's been composing haikus to my breastpump. Weird? Yes. But it's fun. I was inspired by my birth board online--every now and then they have a thread of haikus on one topic or another. Anyway, here are mine. Enjoy!

Oh breastpump, my pump,
You suck at sucking. Output?
Just one lousy ounce.

I pump little milk.
If I were a dairy cow,
Hello slaughterhouse.

Are we sleeping through the night yet?

Nope--and since I'm breastfeeding, I don't really expect that to happen for several months. But she usually only wakes us around 2 & 5 or so, so I can't complain!

I'm not sure I can adequately express the disturbance these haikus cause me!

Mike, all I can say is.....MOOOOOOOOO!

i understand the feeling but i must admit when mike told me you had written haikus....i thought it was a typo and he meant hiatus. imagine my surprise when he actually meant haikus....

Becky said...

LOL got the idea from my online birth board....the thread on MIL haikus was particularly funny.
