Weaning Twins and Marking Milestones
This year, their 4th spring, my twins could not longer be called nurslings. For me, this meant the end of a 10 year stretch of being pregnant and/or nursing. I was ready for the girls to wean. Obviously, they were too, because the weaning process went very smoothly. I said to them, "After you go for as many days without ninny as the number of fingers you have, you can say you are weaned. Then you can get your ears pierced." 10 days later, we were at the jewelry store. It really was that easy, and honestly, it seemed to be more of a big deal to me. I have decided to get a tattoo to literally mark the end of that era in my life.
