Weaning: What's The Rush?

 "Once they can ask for it, they are too old to get it."

"You're still doing that?!"

"If you don't wean that kid soon they are going to still be on the boob in college."

Really? Really?!

These are clearly ridiculous statements.

Breastfeeding Support: It's More Than Just A Good Bra

Find us on Facebook

While every breastfeeding mum should have a comfortable supportive bra, the need for support doesn't end there. Mums need emotional support from friends and family (or even strangers--hopefully non-creepy ones) to start or continue doing one of the hardest jobs they will have as a parent.

The Mind Of A Two Year Old

I had the following conversation with Danger Baby while getting her dressed for the day:

Danger Baby: I want to see Grayma today.
Me: We can't see Grandma today, but we will see her in a few days. 
DB: In a few days?! Yea! I go get her. You not go with me. You go to knitting every days. You not go with me to get Grayma. *crazy laugh* I love her. She is so beautiful. I love Grayma.

Later, when I was getting her ready to lay down for her nap, I had this conversation:

DB: I go to see Grayma Prl?
Me: Yes, we will go see Grandma Pearl soon.
DB: I love her. I go see her. And Aunt Sherry, and Uncle Kavin, and Sargie, and Johnnie. I want to pet Sargie. I pet him gently. I hold my hand flat to him and pet him gently. I want to pet Johnnie. I pet him gently every days.

I think she's excited to see her Pennsylvania branch of the family. (I am too.)
