Since our third child arrived just over two months ago we have been asked several times “is he a good baby?” What these people are actually asking is a slightly different question, they are really asking a question about how settled and well the baby is but it has got us thinking about the idea of what a good baby is. 315 more words
I first read this post mid-October, and when I came to the end of it I slapped my knee and shouted, "YES! THAT is what I'm talking about!!" There needs to be more posts like this for new and expecting Mamas to reference - they need the straight goods from a woman who has been there, done that, and lived to tell the tale... and who also happens to be an exceptional teller of stories. Sweet Madeleine is one of my favourite writers. I "met" Madeleine herself through a baby forum, and have had the pleasure of e-chatting with her from time to time. She is lovely, and so is this blog. So please, don't just read this post as a one-off, viral thing. When you have the time, go back and read some of her archived stuff, and continue on the journey with her.
