Plus, three reader comments:
On what is missing in a pandemic marriage, tell SP: “I broke up with my longtime partner around Christmas. While I haven’t had this experience yet, I love reading your love stories! I’ve read COJ since I was a lonely teenager in a tiny southern town, and I feel like I grew up looking up to the writers and commentators here. This is how you love, this is how you live. What a nice, fun, open group of people we have here! “
Mallory says of what’s missing in a pandemic marriage: “The other day my husband and I were jokingly arguing about who was funnier, me or him. I wrote to my friends that it was definitely me, right? My friend wrote back and said, “Do you remember the time when I broke one of your wine glasses and I felt so bad? His answer was to casually throw his wine glass against the wall to break his glass too? That was funny.’ I forgot how funny he is with other people! I laughed so hard at the memory and can’t wait to see it through other people’s eyes again. “
J says of 7 things that surprised me about breastfeeding: “Breastfeeding is amazing! And so is not breastfeeding! If parents are struggling or unwilling to be able to breastfeed, it should be comforted to know that your baby is still staring at you wide-eyed when you come to them with a bottle of their beloved formula or pumped breast milk. They will still stare deep into your eyes as they pick up their bottle while you memorize each other’s faces. Your breasts / chest still provide the safest, most comfortable place in the world to curl up and fall asleep to the sound of your heartbeat. They will never remember how they were fed, but they will know deep down that they were loved beyond measure and that their bellies were always full. “
