    Well, DD hasn't nursed since I last posted, so it's been 10 days. She's rarely asked. The last time she really truly asked, I told her the nums were tired, they'd worked a long time, and now they were ready to be done. She fussed about it for a minute, but no major breakdown from her. She hasn't even asked in almost a week. We were even talking yesterday near bedtime about how she nursed as a baby, and she was pretending to be a baby, but she still never actually asked to nurse. So I'm guessing that she really is okay with it, just needed a push to get the ball rolling. I haven't felt at all like my boobs are filling up without her nursing, so I really don't think she was getting any milk there at the end, or if she was, it certainly wasn't much. I feel so good to be done. My hope is that I didn't force her before she was ready, and I don't think I really did, but only she can really know that. So, this part of our journey is over. In another week or two when I feel really confident about it, I'm gonna have me a PB&J sandwich and a Snickers!

    DD hasn't nursed in about a month but I'm still scared to eat a Resses. It's just been forbidden for so long and I kind of think pb=poison now. It's not rational, I know

    Well, not as irrational as the fact that I have never given my DD any nuts because her father is so allergic to some of them. So I have no idea whether she is allergic or not. I swear every single time we've been going to test them with her, she gets sick. After about 5 or 6 times, I'm kinda like "okay, is this a sign not to try them with her?" so I'm scared to death of it!
