This reminds of the time last fall when my pastor's wife said with a smirk, "Wait til you hear what your son said to his Sunday School teacher!"
Me - "Is is something he learned from his grandpa?"
Her - "No, I think he learned it from you and Mike"
Me - "Tell me!"
Her "NO. Ask Kim (the teacher)"

Me (nervously after the service) "Kim, Jolyne told me to ask..."
Kim - "Joey all of a sudden said 'Why are you so horny? You're always so horny!' It cracked me up!"
Me, horrified - "Um, he didn't hear that from us"

Later, in the car...
Us - "Joe, where did you hear 'horny' from?"
Joey - "From 'Tom & Jerry'!"
Us - "Tom & Jerry?"
Joey - "From the girl cat" (this just keeps getting weirder)
Us - "When did she say that?"
Joey - "YOU KNOW, when Jerry has the suit...?"
US - "OOOOOOOH, she said 'CORNY', that means silly or goofy! That explains everything"

Wheww... lots of splainin' to do at church...

I've been feeling so done with breastfeeding lately that I've seriously been thinking about giving it up. I breastfed my last one for a year and stopped the day before I concieved the newest addition. Now I bfed him for 6 months so I've really been lactating for like 27 months or some crazy amount. Last night I even made Josiah a bottle hoping that he would maybe sleep longer but he refused to take it.

I like to feel that I have the option to stop if I ever feel I need it and I think I was almost ready to go that route until I read your post. Im hopeful that I can continue with Josiah and slowly reduce the number of feedings. I've never had that experience with my others but maybe I should just stick it out and give it a try. Im always amazed at how fast the time goes so maybe if I did quit now then another 6-12 months down the road, I would be regretting it.

So in short :P this is the really long way to say thank you for giving me a bit of hope in the bfing department.

I've seen advertisements around for Zumba but not at the Y. It looks like it would be a fun class

My boys started to self-wean at 10 months old. They just totally lost interest. I kept offering till 12 months, but after that they really just didn't want to anymore. I was glad it went like that and wasn't traumatic for them but at the same time, MY BABIES DON"T NEED MEEEEE WAHHHH!

My daughter started sticking her fingers in my belly button as she was self weaning too!! So funny. It is so strange to have a child self wean after having one who didn't. It took me awhile to catch on!

Um, can C come and teach Tavy all about that self-weaning thing? Cause we are days away from 16 months here, and we nurse in the morning, at night, and about 4-5 other times each day. I'm more than a little bit done but night weaning was hard enough--I don't want to force her to stop.

My boys self-weaned at 14 and 16 months, and I was so weepy about it too. There was a little voice that also said, damn, that was easy, but I did hope they'd nurse till two. I know of so many toddlers who get a 2nd nursing wind at about that age, though, so you never know.

That Thursday morning Zumba class is the first one we went to, and i didn't like it nearly as much either. Juanito still goes sometimes to that one, but i just can't really want to.

Hey, Deven self-weaned at 16 months too! It was just the same - I had decided that I would nurse through cold & flu season and stick it out and then she was all, meh.

So we were done. She asked exactly once a few days later, I distracted, the end. So much easier than I expected from her...good for C. :)

ha ha ha, bad whore, HILARIOUS!

I'm sure I've told my penis-ula story, right? It was K's mispronunciation of the word peninsula when she saw it in the Michigan motto. Love it when they have funny screw-ups!

You are crazy with that ZUMBA!, girl! I'm really not sure I recognize this person, either. :) I have to admit that, as happy as I am with the rec. ctr. we go to as a workout facility, I'm a wee big jealous of the free classes at the Y and all. I can't bring myself to go there, though. Our Y is more expensive, hasn't changed much since I worked there in high school and college, and because i worked there it somehow feels like voluntarily going back to prison. Funny, I thought I liked the job at the time. :)
