Today Dylan and I had lunch at my mom’s house with one of my mom’s cousins, S. We were eating bagels, cream cheese and smoked salmon. Dylan, the little foodie that he is, requested some capers from my mom. S was amazed that Dylan liked capers. She asked him what capers taste like, and he said: Mommy’s Milk!
S said that they must taste very yummy if they taste like mommy’s milk. Dylan agreed! S then asked me how long I nursed Dylan and I told her that I still do. She said that she nursed her daughters (who are now in their 20s) til they were 18 months old. That is pretty impressive considering at the time many moms didn’t breastfeed at all and formula was the norm!
Dylan and S really hit it off at lunch. He sang songs and told stories and jokes. He smiled a lot, laughed a lot and just oozed sweetness! Before S left, she told me that she had a wonderful time with us, and that Dylan is an advertisement of why moms should nurse for a long time. It was such a lovely compliment, and it truly made my heart happy! I felt so proud!
