Do I Say It Out Loud?

I'm afraid to say it out loud, in case something changes, but the Sprout has weaned himself this week, I think. I can't pinpoint exactly when it happened, but he's stopped breastfeeding.

Yay! I'm getting excited about the toxic hobby opportunities that I could get into again if this truly lasts. I couldn't do leaded stained glass panels, and I certainly couldn't do furniture stripping while nursing, but perhaps I can start one of these hobbies again soon.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Not that I regretted extended nursing - I'm hoping it helped him grow out of his peanut allergy, all the nutrients have given him strong teeth and a precocious brain, and he's a really emotionally secure little guy. I'm glad I did it. I'm just done.

If he's done, I'm done. With all my heart.

I'm sad even thinking about weaning. Ever!

But I'm 39 now, so I think we will be "trying" for another one next year...which probably means at least less "mook."

Maybe they'll tandem nurse.

PS "Toxic Hobby" is surely my next band!
