On My Way Out

I am about to leave for the women's retreat, and so much is going through my mind. I am excited for this chance to get away with my friends for fellowship and worship, but also nervous leaving all 3 kids in Ed's care. I know he will do a great job, but it is a lot of work, and I don't know if he knows what he is in for. Additionally, I nursed K this morning for the last time. SHE will be fine, but I am not sure I will be. Just feeling really sad that this is the end of a season in my life.

That must be hard! Some of my friends started weaning their babies at the age A is now (9 months) and I can't even imagine not nursing at this point. So many hours have been spent doing it...I wonder how many hours of your life were devoted to nursing your three? In a way is is nice to have your freedom again? I haven't been away from A for more than three hours since she was born and sometimes wish I could just leave her with Bill for longer than that!

Oh, I know how hard that is! :(

I will say that I weaned Elianna before I went to a Precept training session expecting that I was done nursing her, but when I got home 3 days later, she wanted to nurse again and ended up nursing for another couple of months. You never know.

Hugs,
Angel

I just weaned Sydney, too, for the retreat. She seems OK, but I am sad! Not a baby anymore...

SOmetimes I think I'll be the crazy mom nursing her three year old, because I just can't imagine not nursing. But that would be too weird. Hope the retreat is fun!

I didn't enjoy nursing until it was time to stop so I can imagine how you feel. I didn't enjoy the after effects it has on your body when you stop... that was the most difficult part. I hope you had a good retreat.
