It's time to pump milk again. Can I get paid to pump? Or at least receive a free smoothie with every five bottles I fill?

Just cried while throwing out my old breast pump with the milk stains still in the tubing. The pump that made those funky noises, was a pain to use and clean, and helped me nourish my two babies now almost 4 and 7. Parenthood is complicated.

Whoever said they've never cried over spilled milk has obviously never spilled 8ozs of breastmilk they just finished pumping.
