    Default We're Weaning

    And I am ambivalent about it. It's really more mama-led than child-led because of my pregnancy but I'm ok with that. We were down to nursing at bedtime in the past few weeks or so and she still asks (very infrequently), but is ok when I say "we're not nursing right now" and asks for water instead.

    I just thought about it and feel that it's the right thing for our family when L gets here. Of course, I don't know how I will feel then or how she will feel (K) but I figured we would cross that bridge when we get to it. For now, we're on the weaning train because this mama cannot imagine the lack of sleep and oversupply involved in nursing two.

    Thanks for reading my ramble.

    Aw Tiff. You know, I think K is so smart, that she probably knew this was coming. I think she'll do great. And you did great, going this far in your pregnancy, I've heard it gets painful.
    Such a big step, but it will be a good one for the both of you.

    Tiff it sounds like you've thought this through. It might help to keep a little journal about your feelings, and might be nice to one day give to K. Also, don't forget to take some pictures so you always have the memories.

    Gosh momma I'm teary eyed writing this. Feels like we've all been on this journey with you!!!
