Clear Blue Water by Karen Montague-Reyes for February 28, 2008
Eve: Iris finally weaned, so I'm finished nursing. Mom: It's about time. She's 3. Eve: She just turned 3. That's not that old. Mom: No, but it was a bit unsettling to watch. Eve: Why? It's perfectly natural. People in other countries nurse for even longer. Mom: Yes, but this is America - Ev: Where we're so uptight that perfectly natural things give us anxiety attacks - Ivy: Mom! Iris and Maizy are naked and in the front yard! Mom: I rest your case!
