It makes me sad.
I feel like a quitter.
I feel like a failure.
Once we’re done, I can’t go back.
It will cost us money.
The last two weeks have been troubling and not fun.
#2 has decided that she is done with me.
It was a constant fight.
Mommy and baby should not fight.
Especially about nourishment.
I thought it was just a strike, but, she never went back to it.
Not after the tooth finally popped through.
Done with nursing.
So, that means, I’m done, too.
And, I wasn’t ready to be done.
I wanted to make it to a year.
#2 had other ideas.
So, we made it to 8 months and a couple days.
And, thankfully, I have a freezer full of white gold. So, she’s getting that now.
But, it will only last so long and then she’s on to the fake stuff.
Formula. It is expensive.
But now? She’s a happier baby.
She’s not fighting me to eat. And, she smiles more.
Lesson learned? Preconceived plans about your children will be quickly thrown out the window.
What really sucks?
Having to make sure bottles/milk is ready
Did I mention it hurts? Because the girls are seriously boycotting me right now.
At least she’s really cute:
