A Long Week Ahead

This week I'm taking a course to become a CLC or Certified Lactation Counselor. I knew I wanted to pursue becoming a lactation consultant but then was also faced with needing 30 hours of continuing eduction for my speech pathologist state license. In the best interest of time and money I signed up for this course. I lined up childcare with the grandparents, and have been commuting an hour and 15 minutes each way. 

The course is Monday-Friday from 8:15-4:30. To say I'm not used to being in a classroom for 8 hrs a day is an understatement. It's also an understatement to say I miss my girls! 

Hopefully the week will fly by and the girls will have a great time with their grandparents. 

As someone who loves learning , I have to say I'm really enjoying it so far. Crazy to remember all of the obstacles we overcame in order to establish and succeed at breastfeeding. I only hope I can help other moms in the future. 


  1. Great opportunity! I admire your dedication taken into account how busy you are. A week will fly by for sure. The girls won't feel it.

  2. I love that you are doing this! How awesome to be able to pass that knowledge on to other Mamas who are desperate for it.
