And in a break from my recent heavier posts, i make this light offering:
Ephraim is 18 months old.
He's still nursing.
The other night, Neil & i were in bed with our two little boys. i was playing scrabble on my phone & Neil was watching sports... we were trying to be boring so that the boys would go to sleep. Suddenly, Ephraim sat up between us. i glanced over at him, but he wasn't looking at me, he was staring at his shirtless daddy. After a moment of pondering, he spat out his soother and reached over to latch on. Neil swatted him away, and Ephraim nonchalantly picked up his soother and resumed sucking.
Needless to say, Neil & i are both feeling a little self conscious about our bodies now.
