Wean Me Gently
I know I look so big to you,
Maybe I seem too big for the needs I have.
But no matter how big we get,
We still have needs that are important to us.
I know that our relationship is growing and changing,
But I still need you. I need your warmth and closeness,
Especially at the end of the day
When we snuggle up in bed.
Please don't get too busy for us to nurse.
I know you think I can be patient,
Or find something to take the place of a nursing -
A book, a glass of something,
But nothing can take your place when I need you.
Sometimes just cuddling with you,
Having you near me is enough.
I guess I am growing and becoming independent,
But please be there.
This bond we have is so strong and so important to me,
Please don't break it abruptly.
Wean me gently,
Because I am your mother,
And my heart is tender.

Yesterday I learned of a poor mama who lost her four month old baby girl on Friday. She has a blog, and has written all about it. She is such a strong woman...I dont know how she is keeping it together..how will she go on? A perfectly healthy thriving little beautiful princess when dropped off at the sitter...then just...gone...I cant even begin to imagine the pain. My heart is ACHING for this little baby and her family, especially her mama. Its really bothering me..to the point where I'm not going to be on Facebook today cuz thats what everyones posting about. Everyones putting bows in their daughters hair in honor of this baby, cuz thats what the mama is requesting we all do today...I dont think I can...I dont want to be reminded of the awfullness of it everytime I look at my own precious baby girl. Today I will be sad. Why do things like this have to happen?

Beaner, Beanzy, B. My Beautiful "almost" teen mini-me :)Not really though...she's such an individual...beautiful, loving, sweet, kind, bitchy sometimes too....like me. She's my best friend! She loves all things horror, been watching scary movies with me since I can remember. She is going to be a FABULOUS mom someday. So interested in all aspects of baby rearing the "right" way, which to us means attachment parenting. She gets terribly disturbed when she hears of a baby being left to "cry it out" or getting circumcised, or being fed formula by choice...not necessity. She helps with little sweet pea so much, and just loves her to death. Every day I feel extremely lucky to have her, and that she loves me..most of the time, lol. I hope she knows how much I love her..I try to make sure she knows. Did I say how beautiful she is??? True happiness!

I'm a proud AP mom to 5 kiddos..all of whom were/are breastfed! I've nursed through pregnancy, tandem nursed, and am currently nursing my four month old! I practice child-led weaning, and the usual age for my kids to wean themselves is between 4 and 5 years!
