Chocolaty Peanut Butter and Banana Grilled French Toast Sandwich

My children love Peanut butter and Banana sandwiches, they also love french toast, so why not fuse the two together ??  While the kids are home for Christmas break I have been trying to make them delicious treats since we get in the cold cereal rut during busy school mornings.  This morning I made these little delights and they were a big hit!  My kids were certain I should win the Mother of the Year award after they were presented with these beauties, and I have to admit I kind of agreed with them ;)  These were super simple to make, and I had all the ingredients readily available in my pantry!

I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine did!  Enjoy :)

Quit Trying to Make a Point and Put Your Boobs Away!!

I have sat quietly watching this latest movement that has become quite popular on breast feeding.  There are women all over the Internet baring it all in support of public breast feeding and breast feeding advocacy.  I will start by saying I have nothing against breast feeding, I breast fed all three of my children.  I fed them wherever I was when the time came that they needed nourishment, even in public!  I never got shamed, asked to cover up, or to leave an establishment, because just like this lady below, I did not have to expose my whole breast to get my baby fed.  I think it is wonderful that God made our bodies to be able to care for our young and provide them the nourishment they need.

Here is where I have a problem.  Quit trying to make a point and just feed your kid already!  Lets be honest boobs are distracting!  There are establishments where men go pay lots of money to watch topless dancers for entertainment.  There is a huge market for low cut tops, cleavage enhancing bras, you get it!  When you are staring down someone in a restaurant with your whole tit hanging out to make a point and then posting about it on social media, you are looking for attention not just trying to feed your baby.   How do you women even know people are looking and giving you dirty looks if you are not looking around for someone to be watching?  There is a time and place for everything.  If you are in a movie theater sure bare it all, but in a restaurant across from someones husband, maybe just maybe this would be a time to be more discreet.  Maybe I'm crazy but chances are he is going to peek and chances are his wife may give you a dirty look...just saying.

Why post pictures on social media?  I don't know call me crazy again, but what is this going to do to your child when they are older?  The last thing a teenager wants all their friends to see on the Internet is them sucking on their moms tit!  We are told not to write about our children without their permission, because of how it may make them feel.  Don't post pictures of your kids faces or them taking a bath as a toddler for fear of predators seeing them.  Do none of you realize these same sickos are out there possibly touching themselves to your baby suckling on your nipple?  Wake up!

Breast feeding is indeed a beautiful thing, the only reason it has become a big deal is because you have made it a big deal.  Feed your baby, put it away simple as that!
