To the person who created the Downton Abbeyoncé Tumblr:
I bow down to you. I am humbled by your brilliance. If this was 1914, and you were a member of nobility, I would serve you with pride and honor, like Mr. Carson serves the Earl of Grantham.

I love you more than HazMat protective suits. More than smoking meth with my buddies in my parent’s abandoned house. More than even Skylar loves money laundering through the car wash. Yes, my love for you is breaking bad. That’s why I hope you’ll accept this “Breaking Bad” V-Day card. We’ve got crazy chemistry, bitch. [Butthorn]
“Toddlers & Tiaras” is the poster TV show for how not to parent. You know it’s true, honey boo boo child!

The nurse-ins are wonderful, and extremely supportive for nursing moms, but to the general public may be seen as a big nuisance. Which is why I think it’s a good idea for older kids to see moms breastfeeding. No need to hide this natural act. Older kids don’t have to go to a bathroom to eat, why should babies?

Throughout the show’s history, there were numerous nursing moms on the show, but that stopped sometime during the ’90s. Thankfully mom Lani Michelle of the blog Boobie Time (love it!) has started a petition to get Elmo and friends to welcome some breastfeeding moms on their show. Great idea, Lani!
