Got Milk? Me Neither.

As you know I explained to the farmer months ago that I did not want to go on weaning. This is where you do not get any milk. The farmer said, "fine, you are Baby Belle, Jr., so I am not going to put you on weaning."

I thought this was very sensible and civilized.

Then today my mother Belle Pepper - MY OWN MOTHER - put me on weaning! She would not give me any milk! NOT ONE DROP!

I told her PLEASE BE SENSIBLE! THE FARMER SAYS IT IS OK! I AM BABY BELLE JUNIOR!

She turned a deaf ear on me.

I said MOTHER! PLEASE BE SENSIBLE! I AM ONLY FIVE MONTHS OLD! I NEED MILK!

She turned a deaf ear on me.

I looked around and there was several others with plenty of milk they did not need, even Jammies had milk and so I said, "JAMMIES! WHAT ABOUT THAT MILK IN YOUR LITTLE BAG??!! I COULD DRINK IT FOR YOU AND YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO CARRY IT AROUND!"

Jammies turned a deaf ear on me. Then so did Betsy, and Winnie, and Wronny, and Big Orange, and everyone else.

PLEASE! I said. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! I NEED MILK! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ALL OF YOU!

"You will get used to it," said my brother Zane Gray. "I am not even interested in milk any more."

PLEASE! I said. PLEASE!!!!

This is dreadful. You must go on strike at once. Even little Luna, who was born in February, still gets milk from her mom, Stuffin. Clearly you still need milk. You should also demand chocolate milk on weekends. Put your foot down! All four of them! Refuse to be cute until you are provided with milk! I will be supporting your protest.

It is time, little grasshopper, to understand the Zen of Peanuts.

There really needs to be some kind of patch,like for people who are trying to quit smoking, a goatie milk patch,to help ease you through this terrible time of withdrawal!

Baby Belle Jr. listen to your Mother! Recently I too had this conversation with my son Rubix Cube... he didn't take it much better than you are... but we are the Moms and we know best :O)...

Oh, poor you Millie! Gracie and Joyjoy recommend cherry tomatoes, banana peels, and all-purpose poultry (though their farmers keep hiding the chicken feeder when they're out).
