The End of an Era

So we are on day 3 of absolutely no boo-boos. Any of you who know Sadie know how attached to nursing she has been these past 2.5 years.
I can't believe that she really is stopping before Silas comes.

Now that doesn't mean that she isn't still obsessed with boo-boos. She has to look at them, all her animals have to partake of them, she inquires about their welfare- Are boo-boos cold? Are they warm? Do boo-boos want to watch a movie? They want to come out and visit, - she sometimes has to pretend to has boo-boos.
But the past few days I didn't say no in the morning and she just pretended on her own.

I've promised her a No Boo-boos party at Dancing Mouse (aka Chuck E. Cheese). So now we'll have to pay up in the next week or two. Cake & pizza and lots of fun. Sounds good to me.

I'm glad we've reached this milestone. But I'd be lying if I said it doesn't make me a bit (OK, a lot) weepy. Nursing was tough going at first, but turned into one of the best things I've ever done, and I'm proud of us for going so long.

**Sob** Wipes away happy tears**

I think you're amazing for sticking with it through everything you had to go through in the beginning, and 2 and a half years is extremely impressive. It's good to know the booboos were rewarded with movies. I think the party should happen while I'm there so I can play skiball too. And I've been meaning to get one of those etch-a-sketch pictures done of myself...

Wow Sadie!! I am very proud of her. Maybe we could do a joint undies/booboo party so they will really think we are crazy at Dancing Mouse. Think of the cake we could have...maybe a pair of underwear with booboos on top? The possiblities are endless.... I bet she'll still try now and then, even Aiden does and it's been almost a year.
