Remember when i was reading all those books about different parenting styles and everyone told me to forget the books because once he was here it all goes out the window? I scoffed. And that Dr. Sears book? I was all hardcore and boundaries. I really thought he was a kook.
Yeah. Well, as Max is never farther than a cry and most of the time he’s in my arms, I guess the joke is on me. Seriously, I call his swing the Iron Mommy because I feel so guilty putting him down. I figure as long as he’s awake I’m supposed to hold him, kiss him and overall just love him up. (This might be a factor in the slow burnout.)
Being that I am literally attached to my baby, I always eat with him in my arms or on my lap. This has led to a list here in the house:
Things I’ve Spilled on My Son
Cookie, Toast, Bagel, Pizza, Pesto Ciabatta, Chips
Angel Hair, Fusili, Overdone Tortellini
Potatoes, Peas, Carrots
Ice Cream, various cakes
I don’t eat anything hot as I never actually get to it when it’s hot and hot drinks are out since there is no point if it doesn’t contain caffeine. He survives.
Oh and btw, he is offically out of 0-3 month clothes. He’s growing so fast I can’t even believe it.
