Our little boy celebrated his 'Weaner Day' today....No, not that weiner, weirdo. He is now weaned. No more nursing. I agree with the idea of child-led weaning, but, man, I am tired of breastfeeding. I want to sleep through the night if I can. I don't want to be 'attacked' when I sit down. I'd like to have a phone conversation without having to 'assume the position' of nursing. So, I decided on my way home from my little getaway last weekend that I was done. I just need the space. I hope that doesn't make me a 'bad mommy' but I need something to have some....'space'. He's taken it pretty much in stride. We've had a few sleepless nights because of it, but I am pretty used to living without a large amount of sleep these days.
Anyhow, our big boy enjoyed his cake. We did the same celebration with Liv when she was weaned. She insisted that Briar have the priviledge as well. She even made him a card.
Happy Weaner Day, Briar!
