My Breastfeeding Story in 100 Words (Or Less)
Anne Ferguson, Minnetonka, Minnesota
Originally printed in the Winter 2018/19 Northern LLLights (Leader Letter of LLL of MN/DAs)
Two thousand, five hundred and fifty-six days.
One day shy of seven years.
Nine hundred and twelve days of tandem.
Now, five years later it seems like a lifetime ago.
Will my boys even remember?
How quickly I forget.
“They” said they’d eventually wean themselves.
I proved them right. We did.
With so many challenges early on
I was able to appreciate the eventual ease.
The multi-purpose tool in my toolbox of motherhood.
Savor the precious moments.
Soon they are just a tiny dot in the rear view mirror.
