Saturday, March 31, 2007What do you do when your child says that they will "never" wean?
When they say "I think people should drink breast milk forever, it's the most marvelous thing."
It's adorable coming from a toddler. It's cute coming from a pre-schooler...but what about when it comes from an eight year old?
Someone has finally uploaded a clip from the British documentary titled "extraordinary breastfeeding."
My honest reaction? Umm...okay then.
I'd be lying if I didn't say that I thought this was strange...very, very strange. At the same time, I firmly follow the "whatever works for you" style of parenting. The mother and children seem perfectly normal, the dad is ok with it and the family dynamic seems to work. It icks me out, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be doing it.
Though I do have to say that I laughed out loud when the older daughter said that breast milk is "better than mangoes even..."
