Tomorrow is a big day for us. It is the last day, ever, that Emma is going to nurse. Part of me is a little sad, but most of me is SO ready for this. I feel like the teensiest bit of a failure because I was all gung ho about child-led weaning, and now I'm not even doing it. I've been agonizing over the best way to do this for awhile. We're having a Weaning Party for her tomorrow to celebrate this milestone. We're meeting her little friends at a park and bringing treats for everyone. We've been talking about it a lot, and she really seems to understand what is going to happen. Tonight at dinner we were discussing it, and she said, "Nursing always makes me so happy and makes my body feel good and healthy." I hope she ends up with fond memories of nursing, and not hurt feelings from being weaned before she was ready.
As far as the treat for tomorrow, I'm having a slight problem with that. We made muffins, and I must have put too many trays in the oven at once or something, because I just took them out and they are completely burnt. So much so that our smoke alarm started going off when I opened the oven. Swell. It's already 11:30. What am I going to do now?
