Pressure to Wean

So yesterday I was talking this woman I know and I was expressing how Jack was having a hard time settling down for sleep in the rocking chair the night before; tossing and turning, doing gymnurstics, etc.

She said, “wean him! Why don’t you just wean him!?”
I said, “no, I don’t want to. I believe that this is what is best for Jack and I will allow him to nurse for as long as he needs to.”
She said, “so if he’s like 4 years old and tells his friends ‘oh I’ll be right back I need boobie’ then what?”
I said, “isn’t it sad that most kids don’t know that boobies are for them?”
She said, “so, you’re going to have a one man revolution, huh?”
I said, “oh no, it’s not just me.”

Evil revolution laugh coming, join me. MUAHAHAHAHAAA!
