Us

Why should I stop?
She’s happy, I’m happy, it’s good for both of us. Why stop?
It isn’t a question of deciding not to wean.
It is a question of not deciding to wean.

In this I am lucky.

Basically, because I’ve got no family near to know better than we do.
Because I’ve got no partner near to know better than we do.
Because I’ve got no health professional to know better than we do.

What would make us stop?

Nobody asks a healed woman why she still drinks chamomile tea.
Nobody asks an old married couple why they still have sex.
Nobody asks a grownup why he still eats fishfingers.

The assumption is – because they like it, that’s why, and anyway they’re doing no harm to anyone so why is it anyone else’s business why they do it?

Well, we like it. That’s why. So there.
