  • My pediatrician told me this a week after I had my son... I love our doctor!!!

    She said, what's important is that you, dh, and your little guy are happy. A clean house, folded laundry, and dinner on time come second. It made me feel so much better about letting the little things go, when all I wanted to do was sit and watch our son... :)

  • Spend less time worrying about what other people think about your parenting choices, and more time worrying about what works for your individual child (who is different from every individual child on the planet, including your other children)
