Yesterday I sat in a continuing legal education seminar. Eight hours in a Holiday Inn Select conference room. It was rather brutal. Especially with an eight week old baby with a sitter at home (Side note- this is when I went back to work with Dell Harper. No wonder I cried for two weeks every morning in the elevator!).
However, I have hours to be done before the end of the year, and have waited until the last possible moment, per usual.
Anyway, I was texting with a friend about how I was just dreading pumping in the handicapped stall of the public bathroom, or in my cold car. She mentioned that she saw on the Today show a segment about a woman needing to pump during a meeting and the hotel gave her a room.
I tentatively asked the desk clerk if there was a place I could pump. . .
Lo and behold! She quickly gave me a key to the nearest open room without any questions! It was so kind and convenient.
So PSA for all of you people like myself who don't plan real good. . . if you are stuck in a conference room needing to pump, just ask! This might be common knowledge, but in (almost) 5 years of motherhood, this is a first for me!
Now for a cute picture of said children-
