To wean or not to wean? I contemplate time and again. 

Its difficult on some days, some days it gets better.

Then I see my child and realize how fast she’s growing.

That I can’t stop the time so I can keep her little.

I know in time she will stop.

I know in time I let go.

When that time comes,

I will be happy, I will be sad. There will be a feeling I can’t explain.

I will be longing for the little child I nourished,

Wishing that time can take me back, and do it all over once again.

Breastfeeding at 25 months and counting.
