My oldest son was 2 days old when I first realized for the first time how much how much I needed to stand up for him …we were in a local store to buy diapers (sure, we had plenty at home already, but hadn’t planned on needing preemie size – who does? ) when a woman walked over and rubbed the top of his tiny head and said “how sweet!” All I could think of was get your hands off my baby!! Since then, there have been SO many instances where I’ve thought the same thing, except I’ve learned – through all 5 of my children, how to stand up for them – MY WAY. I’d like to think that with 5 kids in 7 years, I’ve learned a lot. They have taught me as much, if not more, than I’ve taught them. And I love every minute of it.
So many times throughout the past 8 years, friends – or complete strangers – will ask “whose theory do you use for …napping/sleeping/feeding time, etc” And I am proud to say “mine.” No, I do not use the Freud method, not any other method for that matter. Did Freud even have his own children? I have no idea, nor do I care, because even if he did, they were not MY children. I have one chance to be a Mom, and I will handle each and every instance individually. Because no one knows my children like I do.
