What’s shakin’ bacon? Pretty sure my grandma might look at me crazy if I asked her that. Just like the look I give Lilah when she is trying to tell me something. Sometimes she gets it right and then other times I get this legit jibber-jabber sentence. Like I said in the last post everything is a no and I can’t quite figure out if she really means yes sometimes when she says no. I thought I would be so excited when she finally figured out how to tell me what movie she wants to watch, but when your toddler knows what she wants and you are convinced she speaks part Chinese, it puts you in a little bit of a pickle. Talk about melt-down central when I grab the wrong movie. That’s life though, how many times do I find myself trying to explain why I make certain choices or vice versa trying to figure out what in the world provokes others to make their choices. We all “mom” different. PERIOD. The only ones that in my opinion are doing it wrong are the ones that are neglecting their kids. We can all have our own opinions on what we think falls in the neglect category, so I won’t get into that subject too much. I will say this though and I won’t sugarcoat the fact if you are doing drugs, especially if you have kids, get help because not only are you neglecting your own body, but nine times out of ten you are probably not being the kick-ass mom that you could be. Now I really don’t give a hoot what discipline method you use, breastfed/formula fed, cloth diaper vs. Luvs, if that baby is on the tit until he is two, BabyGap vs. Walmart, send them to bed hungry if they won’t eat vs. just give the kid that pb&j that they would rather have, I mean the list goes on. As long as you are trying your best to do what you think is right for your kiddos and family, you are doing it right. Do what works and gives positive vibes in your house. Sometimes it takes time to get to that positive point, like sleep training. To me this really sucked watching my baby do the cry-out method, but down the road it was such a positive effect for the whole household! Having the kiddos sleeping in their own bed through the night was my goal and was what made me happy. If you co-sleep, cool! I don’t blame you for wanting to snuggle them all night! If that’s what makes you happy, do it!
