"Ohh, sit down, she doesn't need you."
If I could have perfected the WTF look that day....I think I may have. Just another of my mom's little jewels of wisdom. Ahhhh

Apparently, if I hang DD's clothes in the light of the waxing moon, the quality of the clothing will change. I should hang the clothes every night until the full moon, and then bring them in just before the moon starts to wane. Then, my daughter will sleep through the night.

He's REALLY pushing CIO now. REALLY thinks its the best idea in the world, ect after speaking to a couple of customers who let their children around Orion's age cry and got them to sleep through the night after 3 nights (first night they cried 5 hours straight! ).
Anyways, he argues that Orion will NEVER sleep through the night, and will be waking to breastfeed and take bottles (ah the joy of never producing enough milk, he LOVES his bottles still) FOREVER. I looked at him and said "Really? He's going to be waking to nurse when he's 18?" very sarcastically, in the hopes of getting him to understand what a stupid statement he was making. Well Dh looks at me, and says, totally humorously "You never know!"
OMG. Seriously. I *know* he's just trying every single thing he can to get me to let Orion CIO, but come ON.

Her: I just want to have my body back
Me: Yeah, but then you are nursing and you don't have it anyway
Her: Well, I am pretty sure I am not going to do that
Me: Hmmm, that is your choice.....although if you nurse you won't get your period back right away. I still don't have mine.
Her: WHAT??? You don't have your period yet?? That settles it, I am NOT nursing.
Her: Because it is not natural to not get your period for so long...I can't force my body to do something so unnatural. You really should wean so your body can go back to doing what it is supposed to!!
