Parenthood is…

Asking for help.

I am putting my mind into this book and evaluating my little girl as fairly as I can.  I need to do this for both of us.  I miss A’s infancy.  I miss the little cries & whimpers.  Toddler cries are way more dramatic!  I have to learn how to be less reactive to her whining & crying and more reactive to her underlying needs.  I need to set boundaries & stick with them.  I need to find my patience and stop “loosing it” when she’s screaming at me.  It is hard.  Parenthood is so hard.  I need to do whatever I can to make it easier and to get out of my own way.  I’ve taken the quiz in this book and it seems we have a “Textbook Baby” on our hands….with a little bit of a “Spirited” & “Angel” kid thrown in for good measure!  I can’t wait to read the rest of this book!  If it doesn’t work, I have some more on the list to read, but I believe in the “Dog Whisperer” so why not the baby one!
