    Default Kate nursed tonight!









    Norah has been super clingy after recovering from a virus, which might have been the flu and could have even been the H1N1. I chose not to test to find out, b/c it really had no bearing on our next move and I didn't want to jam a q-tip into her throat from her nostril for no reason.

    So...anywho....like I was saying, Norah=Clingy. Constantly wanting to nurse. Kate comes up with the bright idea that maybe she wants to nurse too.

    I put her to bed and headed to take a bath and she followed me into the bathroom and said, "but I told you I wanted to nurse." I said, "I didn't know you really wanted to, honey you haven't nursed since you were a baby (16.5 months)." She repeated, "I want to nurse."

    I was all.....

    But, I said, "okay let's go nurse."

    I went into her room, laid her long body across my lap and exposed the breast.

    She gently put her lips on the very tip of the nipple, like she was about the drink from a straw, looked up at me, popped off and said, "I'm done."

    Wow...just did not expect that tonight or ever at this point. She'll be 4 in December.

    I think you handed it very well. This way she at least knows what she is "missing" which isn't much to her, it doesn't sound like, since she didn't nurse for long. What a cutie!

    Oh yeah, her memory is unbelievable, I'm just wondering if she's gonna want more. Again, so not expecting this!

    Norah is doing so much better this week.

    She was hit pretty hard, but muscled through. She's such a trooper.

    Thanks...I just didn't have the heart to refuse her. I guess we'll see what happens in the days to come.

    My 3 y/o has been asking me to nurse a lot lately, but she never follows through.

    I think you handled it well, and its very sweet.

    I wonder if she'll ask again, or if that's going to be enough...
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
