Goodbye my favorite yellow friend!



Farewell Symphony,
my favorite yellow friend.
Our special time together,
is coming to an end.

All the sleepless nights,
are now in the past.
Where did all the time go?
It went really fast.

The first goal was 3 months,
but somehow I made it past 1 year.
I hold you precious Symphony,
as a precious friend & peer.

I am hanging up the horns,
today was finally it.
No more sterilizing,
those tiny little bits.

Gone are the fevers,
and going to the doctor.
Dealing w/ cracking nipples,
that are really, really sore.

No longer living,
by when I need to pump.
Or not drinking alcohol,
Only to pump & dump.

So, to you
my late night companion.
I bid a fond farewell,
Our relationship is done.

Yes, this is it. Today was the last day that I was hooked up to my friend, thoe Medela Symphony. The precious machine has helped me feed my children for 13 months. There were moments I hated it & cried knowing I had to go up to pump. Now, I cry b/c I know my girls will no longer be getting momma's milk. Ian will continue to nurse as long as he wants.

The rest as they say is history.

Oh I remember that thing...sitting on the couch at 2AM, pumping. I can still hear that constant whine in my head! Welcome back to real life! You did an awesome job! Anna was my only one who liked to nurse and I do miss it too.
