a very sad, chubby panda

What has two thumbs and doesn't want to wean?


Seriously, the "calmly and reasonably start dropping feedings" thing does not always work.

It's going to have to be cold turkey, and I'm going to have to go somewhere with a beach, a pool, a jacuzzi, and a place to work quietly on my book while ordering delicious vegan room service.


It's not my fault. It's not like I *want* to.

But he won't take no for an answer. And the crying's driving me more insane than usual.

Just like a man. Spend all day trying to grab the ta-tas and throw a tantrum when there's no ta-ta to be had.

The stealth "mama's out of the country" tactic worked like a charm for us. See if you can get a good deal on a timeshare in Barbados...

Vegan room service--I wish. I'm just a softcore vegetarian and room service sucks. Good luck, though. I remember when my cousin was beginning to stop...all hell raised.

Aw boy. Sorry to hear this isn't going so well. We went until 19 months (and 4 days, not that I remember exactly) and I was definitely the more traumatized of the pair of us, so no words of wisdom, I'm afraid. Just sympathy because it must be hard hearing the little guy cry for you. How many feedings are you doing?

I am a new woman.

I think I'll invent something to sell on TV today.

BOOBIES and FOOD SOURCE; let's face it, life goes down from that point for a young lad.
