DD (32 months) will just come to me and ask "milk, please?" But if she's in a super playful mood, she'll say, "it's time for milky-dilky, mama!"

1 cup flour 1 cup warm water 1/4 cup salt 2 teaspoons cream of tartar 1 teaspoon oil food coloring combine all in saucepan. stir constantly, over LOW heat, until mix is smooth. cool and knead on floured surface or wax paper. add extra flour during kneading, if mix is sticky. store in ziploc baggies or tupperware containers.
dd is 27 months old. we still NIP. a lot. LOL i'm not worried about showing my breast. as soon as dd sees my nipple, she's like a magnet to it! then, i just pull my shirt, to cover more of my breast. i was always more concerned about showing my roly-poly belly. but an older (bigger & longer) child conceals that MUCH better!

LOL
i am currently nursing my 27-month-old dd. no resentment. after such a rough start to our nursing relationship, i feel blessed to be nursing her now.

LOL honestly, during my pregnancy, when i used to have the luxury of long, afternoon naps, i was so *miserable* when hubby would wake me up. he was quite the parent: "now honey, if you sleep any longer, you'll never be able to get to sleep at a reasonable...
