Then Sarah starts yapping between songs and she's apologizing for the depressing nature of her last couple numbers and then mentions that the next song is hopeful. Then she frowns and asks, "Is it hopeful?" Then she thinks about that for a moment and shakes her head.
Then Sarah McLachlan says, "SORRY, AFTER BREASTFEEDING TWO KIDS, I CAN'T REMEMBER SHIT."
Then everybody laughs, just like when I tell a joke, except we're talking about tens of thousands of people.
And did I mention YAYHOO!!!!!WEEEEEEAHHHWOOOHAHA!!!!!
That's the sound thousands of breastfeeding moms make when Sarah McLachlan:
1) swears. It's fun to hear her swear because she seems so frickin' prissy.
2) says yup, I breastfed my kids. And we're clearly not talking about a few weeks before I passed 'em off to a nanny and went on tour. I said, after all, kids. I was in it for the longhaul. Cause I, a rockstar with an amazing career think breastfeeding is important. I was totally willing to put whatever I had on my rockstar agenda aside to feed my babies because that was the most urgent, most beautiful, most essential thing for me to do.
3) of all the experiences in my rock star life, motherhood ROCKED me. It is the journey that inspires me, that changed and changes me irrevocably, that I can't put aside ever, not even here, up on stage in front of tens of thousands of people, because of a) that sneaking insecurity I have that a portion of my brains leaked out of my boobs and I'm just not quite as bright as I used to be, yes honey, it's not just you, me too, and b) because I think about my daughters all the freakin' time, because they are gorgeous and I love them and I want to talk about them and share stories about them because I am a mom. I am a rockstar, true, but I am a mom, always.
