My son will be 2 in February and just recently started asking for 'nonnies' by name, whereas he would sign to nurse before. I guess this means he's officially too old to nurse. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
(It's a joke, y'all!)<br><br>
But he's so polite about it, too! He's signs 'please' and says 'thank you' when he's done. He'll even give his 'nonnies' a nice little pat. Aww. My little guy is so big!

we're working on talking in a "nice voice" instead of whining. my ds comes over to me and says in the sweetest voice "nurthies pwease" and then gives his sweetest smile. the other day when we were getting ready to nurse he says "oh mommy. that makes me so happy". now if he would just stop trying to do somersaults while nursing... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

We're past the gymnastics phase, whew! But I really love how nursing has taught him such great manners. He says please and thank you for almost everything now.

Oh I get it, you know they're too old when they can ask for it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Cute, how darling that he says please and thank you.

My nursling is allllmost there! She'll be one in a month. I love that phase, too...where you can converse with your nursing toddler. Such a sweet time.<br><br>
Too bad so many people miss out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

You scared me for a minute! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I loved nursing my "too old" kid, too. I always thought it'd be creepy, but it was the sweetest thing. Still makes me all teary eyed.

Hee. I love your title! It scared me as well!<br><br>
Mine’s too old to nurse, too. She’ll tell me: “I want to nurse again, in the little blue chair in the other room.” They MUST be too old to nurse when they can use perfect grammar in a complex sentence to describe exactly how nursing should be done.<br><br>
Um, right?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
