09:16 am: Weaned
It wasn't one of my goals for this vacation, but the nurs are kaput. Nothin' left.

I don't know quite when it happened, though it was some time this week (side effect of The Bug?). Teddy might've gone on going through the motions for a long time if I hadn't asked him about it.

As it was, we got a cozy last try. We talked about it, talked about how nice it was and how much we'd miss it. And we will, I know.

Almost 38 months. That's a pretty good run.

Current Location: Boston
Current Mood: sadsad, but relieved too

That's an amazing run! I only managed not quite half as much (18 months) and that was with three of you! But it was still one of my (many) happiest of experiences.

Bummer... but...

...we have nurs at our house now. As if you've passed them onto me. And yes, they are nurs... or if I'm trying to get her to latch onto one specific one, it's a nur. My child will be exposed to singular and plural at an early age as well, even if her parents don't read books like Teddy's parents do... it's a start though!

We will carry on the Nur-Torch... thank you!

I like the idea that I passed them on to you!

Teddy woke up this morning and sighed: "I miss nursing."

Me too. Mostly.

Wow - congrats on going for so long. You are one really dedicated mommy. I know when Nicolas weaned at 16 months I was both sad and relieved. It is definitely a bittersweet feeling. I think Jackson is slowly on his way to weaning as well as he is barely nursing 1-2 times a day anymore. Again - lots of mixed feelings, at least on my side.

Bittersweet is exactly the right word

Feeling as if the nurs may one day be boobs again is excellent.

Feeling as if I won't ever have quite that relationship with Teddy again is not excellent. We still snuggle, we still cuddle, we still hug and kiss, but it's not the same.

:sigh:
