parenting while selfish: a guide
After reading this sounds like you and Lauren are a fantastic team and Wilder will be very proud to have you both as the best parents ever x
Thank you for writing this. It was very honest. And really what a nice recognition from your partner. Thanks for sharing.
From everything Lauren has pointed out, you are exactly the Dada he needs! You let him explore and by showing him you trust him, he can learn to trust himself, you feed him, you are a sleep training backbone which is so so hard for parents, but so beneficial for everyone. And I’m sure so much more. Nobody can be everything. Being a first time parent, especially though the first year is not only physically draining, but emotionally as well. Parenting opens your eyes to all the parts of yourself you're used to having shoved down, but it is a true blessing that, if you lean into, can really elevate your life for good.
beautiful as always! constipation smoothies! making your kid laugh laugh laugh! (who books that?)
thank you for sharing so vulnerably of yourself and so powerfully of your partner!
