Parenting advice is a tricky thing. So often it can be given or received in a negative, know-it-all way. But when it’s not–it can be so helpful, even powerful. Last weekend I was complaining about my crying baby to a group of women when a fellow mama said quietly (and graciously), “He wants to be with you, there’s nothing wrong with that.”
I’ve thought about those words a lot this week. Sometimes I just need to slow down, pick him up, and appreciate these slobbery cuddles because they won’t last long.
In other news, the little guy slept through the night last night. 11:15pm-7:15am on the dot. 8 whole hours of glorious sleep. I am ready to take on the world (or at least the wash).
And if that’s not enough good news, yesterday I breastfed in the mall, standing up, while walking. I felt like supermom.
As promised, here are some photo fails to end the week. More often than not, this is how our pictures turn out.
