Milk

My twins were on mama milk exclusively, whether it was straight from the tap, or a bottle at daycare. My body has not gotten the message that my big eater is no longer with us. Poor twin sister is being offered milk way more than previously, as I need some relief. My frozen stash is growing rapidly. Finding it difficult to be overly excited about it.

after

The funeral is over. Other people say they now feel better. They feel peace. They feel relieved.

I feel nothing. Well, that’s a lie. I feel the anger rising. I’m angry at these people who say they feel peace. Because I don’t. This is not peaceful, this is WRONG. My beautiful baby boy should not be in a box in the ground, with flowers thrown on top. He should be in my arms, nursing, growing, cooing, laughing.

This is not better, this is not relief. This is not peace.
