Weaning isn’t as easy as it seems. I have a 2 year old boobaholic that isn’t willing to go to meetings. She insists upon a morning nurse, a night nurse, and a nurse any time she falls and gets hurt or injures her pride in any way. (Let’s face it, I am a giant pacifier.)
I lamented because the twins weaned easily. But, then I remembered they weaned at 2 years, 3 months…on the day Foodie was born. They weaned because they saw their sister do it and it was suddenly less cool. (If I would have known THAT was going to happen, I would have rented an infant LONG before Foodie was born!)
As tempting as it currently is, something tells me having another child just to wean Foodie would be a relatively bad idea. Plus, how would I wean THAT baby? Have another? No. Just, no.
It shouldn’t be so hard to convince a little one to wean but, she’s so pathetically cute. Today she was walking around with a fresh-from-the-dryer bra on her head saying, “I got boops! Look at dis!”
On the other hand, she tried lifting my mother’s shirt the other day and said, “I like your boops!”
That’s a little awkward…
