Bye-bye, bedtime

June 10, 2014

I think we are weaning. I have been in a little funk lately because I was rejected from two jobs in the past two weeks. I wasn’t even that attached to them, but it still sucks to be told “no.” So, valiant hubby that he is, Darien offered to give me a break from the bedtime routine for a whole week. After one day, I am already planning my renegotiation strategy when this little experiment is over. Seriously, this is the best freedom ever.

Last night, instead of doing the bath, brushing teeth, putting on pajamas, reading stories, nursing, and laying in the dark hoping for him to fall asleep before I do, I listened to some live music downtown while enjoying a malt.

Tonight, I am drinking a glass of wine at a local eatery, blogging.

But it occurred to me that Alban hasn’t nursed since Sunday night. It remains to be seen whether he’ll remember to ask for milk in the mornings the rest of the week, but we could be in the final hours of our nursing relationship. He typically only nurses once or twice a day, if at all any more. This really could be the end, and I am so OK with that.
