Yay, Rachel is back in town! It's not like we hang out every day or anything, but it makes me happy that she's back in the state, although I do hope she had a great trip this weekend. On the flip side, Scott left to travel for work at 4am Monday morning. Boo :(
I always miss Scott when he travels for work, but I admit that I've found the silver lining. Most notably, I get the giant king-size bed all to myself! Well, myself and the three dogs. Amazingly, Corgis have this supernatural ability to stretch out, lay down and suddenly weight 50lbs so that moving them is quite the task. And all three lay triangulated on the bed so that while it is a king size bed, I am left with little room to sleep on it. They also are great about laying down on the blanket in such a way that pulling it up to my chin is equivalent to weight lifting.
So as I lay in bed last night cuddling my real-life stuffed animals, I was thinking about about the various controversial subjects in parenting and this is what I came up with:
Infertiles, as a group, are generally rather well read. I mean, what else are we supposed to do to keep ourselves busy as we kill time between treatments, during the terrible 2WW or whatever else we wait for. So we read. We read about infertility, and often we read about parenting so that when we do get pregnant we are "prepared". In light of this being ICLW week, I have made a pseudo poll, about some of the controversial subjects of parenting. Some of these I admit I already have an opinion on, but I welcome people to share their personal experiences or research.
But just a little reminder - we all want what is best for our future children. Often the reason something is controversial is because there are good points on each side, otherwise everyone would agree. So play nice :) I know you all would anyway but I just had to say it...
-CoSleeping: Yea or nay?
-Babyfood: tiny pieces the child can pick and choose from and feed themselves, or blended and spooned in?
-Cloth diapers vs. Disposable diapers?
Discuss :) I had more but figured I would save some for future posts.
