Today is the first day I am officially weaning my second and last bebe. She has been nursing to go to sleep mostly, but now and then for closeness or neediness too. She is 19 months. I am pretty ready. She is pretty not ready.
Oh yeah; I am dumping the binky too except for bedtime. You know, to sub for boobies. Because silicone often stands in for boobies. Right?
My first girl, Portia weaned herself too early for me at ten months. Libby isn't going to wean herself until college, methinks. And so we actively begin the end. We have been dallying about for several months. Today is the day. Maybe.
So we have spent a lot more time cuddling today. We have been reading more. She's been getting more to drink. She's a little crabby to loose both boob and bink, but I am OK with that.
Because I am going to get my boobies back.
Now how can I lift 'em back up where they belong?
