Some thoughts on weaning:
I have established “milk’s all gone” when I don’t want to nurse her (usually because she JUST nursed). She accepts, with a heart-breaking defeat, and sticks her pasi back in her mouth. It had to be done though, for my sanity. (And it was a difficult few days, where I would say “milk is all gone” and she would scream in disbelief.) Also, she is sleeping better, most nights. She still gets up between 3 and 4 am, but I can get away with one nursing and she’ll sleep again.
Someday, we will be done nursing. Not yet, but someday. Hopefully it’s when we are both ready.
Starts now! Crap, you guys! I don’t want to be stressed and crabby, but there is so much left to do. And my kids- they just won’t stop being kids for a few days so I can get stuff done. Jeez. I’m not done shopping, haven’t wrapped a thing, need to bake, need to make the food for David’s family Christmas (on Saturday), need to think about packing, NEED TO DO THE CHRISTMAS CARDS CRAP CRAP CRAP, etc, etc, etc.
Yay! It’s almost Christmas! I love this time of year. I’m happy and excited and content. I like to look at my tree when it’s dark and just the tree is lit. We get to see so many people we love in the next week. And the kids are so much fun. And they are going to DIE when they change this baby’s diaper. When we get to my mom’s house, we are going to make a gingerbread house and go ice skating. Etc, etc, etc.
