Thanks, mamas -- there isn't anywhere else I could share this story where it would have even a fraction of the meaning it has sharing it with you after all these years of support...
Who can pinpoint such a decision? I imagine there are a lot of reasons, some external, some internal. He first started talking about not nursing when he was about to turn 3, but he didn't even reduce the frequency then (which was good, because that was just prior to a lot of medical drama for him throughout which nursing was an enormous source of stability and comfort). I'm just glad that he feels comfortable exploring it all, without having it turn into an all or nothing undertaking -- that we are both able to just take it a day at a time and see where it leads. That's kind of the flow of our life together, and always has been, so it seems fitting to approach the process of weaning in the same way.

Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
