Re: "if she's still nursing by 2 years old, then we're going to talk..."

So sorry mama! Time with the inlaws or other grandparents can always be interesting for me!! I am nursing my 15month old and plan to till she SW as well. I am all for communication! If it is bothering you, next time say soemthing. That way you don't feel uncomfortable around them. He might not have even meant anything by it. Maybe joking? everyone has an opinion. sometimes others opinions hurt. I try to ignore them I am always the first person to say something if I feel it is inappropriate. ( it really is not his business) that is just my two cents though. I have gotten myself into trouble putting people gently in there place I think motherhood did that too me. Something about people telling you what to do with your child!! KWIM Hope you feel better!!

I wouldn't worry about it now. Your baby is only 8 months old!! That "2 year" mark is still 16 months away... hopefully by then they'll see what a good relationship you have w/ your baby and not even be phased by then.

HAHAHA!!!

I love it!!!

thanks everyone for the encouragement and advice. i'm going to do my best to let this one slide, but if similar comments come up in the future then yes "we're going to talk..."
and it might not be pretty!
thank you everyone

exactly
