    Default Strange convo with DH

    Me: Our LLL group is starting toddler-focused meetings next week. I'm really looking forward to it!
    DH: A toddler meeting? Are they still nursing?
    Me: Ummm...yeah.
    DH: Isn't that a little weird?
    Me: No.... Do you think its weird that I'm still nursing Zachary?
    DH: Of course not! But do you think you'll still be nursing when he's that old?
    Me: How old do you think a toddler is? Zach's a walking, talking, furniture climbing, tantrum throwing 19-month-old - I'd call that a toddler.
    DH: Oh....yeah. I guess so.

    :I thought I'd entered the twilight zone for a minute!
    I guess its sweet that DH still considers Z a baby.

    Sometimes men dont think before they speak
    DH just said something similar to me, when I talked about encouraging weaning around age 2. He was like, "your going to nurse him when he is that old?" I'm like, thats only a few months away if you think about it, and he was "Oh, yeah I guess it is"
    and that was it. Men are weird.

    same with my DH here, although he is proud that Owen is still a 'boob man'!

    It is weird to look at our kiddos and see that they aren't babies anymore. It wasn't an overnight thing, its so gradual that sometimes I forget that hes a toddler now. Especially during the tantrums and the "NO" as he hits me in the face!

    Men. Mine is usually pretty good but he said to me the other day, "Oh if you just stopped nursing her at night she wouldn't even notice." WTH?!?!?

    As if! Too bad breastmilk makes our babies so darn smart. They don't fall for anything!

    My husband and I recently had a similar conversation. It ended with me asking him if 2 years ago I had mentioned nursing an almost 2 year old would he have tought it was weird? He said absolutely, paused and then started laughing. Our daughter is 22 months old and he has NO problem with the fact that she is still nursing. To some guys, I guess they have a preconceived idea of what kids are like at particular ages. They when they realize their child IS that age all those misconceptions get thrown out the window.
