The end of an era

5 years, 11 days.  That's how long I've been a nursing mother. And now, for the first time since R was born, I do not have a nursling.  B weaned herself gradually over the last two months.  She hasn't nursed in a week, or even asked about 'mokies' in 4 days.

That's ALSO how long I have had a child in diapers, and we're also pretty much done with those except at night.  We did pull ups for about a week during the day, and now we're switching over to regular underwear.  No babies at this house.  

I've looked forward to this day for a long time, but it's a little sad too.  I don't know for sure if we'll have any other kids, even though J really wants more.  I am very undecided.  It is liberating though.  J and I are planning a weekend together next month without the kids.  We've never done that before.  I suspect it will be harder for me than it will be for them.
