Real Parenting By
My days and nights are filled with some demanding little people. As a parent, you need to know where everything of every one else's is. It is sort of like constantly taking a test. If the answer is wrong, be prepared for some not so happy children. You also need to anticipate the needs of these little people. Now, I have worked for some pretty tough supervisors in the work force and I could appease them. But my 1 year old? There are times, I feel as though I have tried everything with him, but he is still not satisfied with my level of performance!
Parenting is hard, if you are doing it right. It is draining and exhaustive. It keeps you up at night wondering if you what you said to your child in a moment of exasperation will emotionally damage them. It is sad and heart breaking when your child tells you that someone was mean to them on the bus or called them a baby. It is also rewarding when your child tells you unprompted that you are the best Mommy in the world. Children can break your heart, make you cry, make you rethink everything you THOUGHT you knew. They can also allow you to feel a sense of protectiveness more fierce then you ever thought possible. A feeling of love stronger than you ever felt in your entire life. One cannot experience these emotional highs and lows until you are a parent. That makes the sleepness nights worth it.
And as far as running through the fields? There is very little running in my life. Unless I am wearing my Depends.
You've made the switch to cloth for your little one,
now why not make the switch for yourself?
