Both of my pregnancies went respectfully well. I've been told that I'm practically a pro at natural childbirth. Really though, my nurse with my first said “Some women’s bodies just know exactly what to do!” My midwife was so upset letting me go as a patient after my second that she wants me to have more. I'm cool with bragging just a bit, because on the other hand when it comes to breastfeeding, it didn't come nearly as natural to me.
Upon giving my three and a half-year-old daughter her first tub of slime to have loads of supervised fun with, I made it a point to tell her father not to allow her to take it to her room. She has a habit of stashing toys in there for nap time. I won't point any fingers here, but this is his fault.
Every summer the rising heat brings the wave of headlines reading “Another Child Left to Die in Hot Car,” and the masses screaming, “What is wrong with people?! How could they be so careless?” Which leads me to think, everybody gets so distressed about people leaving their babies in hot cars because dozens of children perish every year. It's common sense to NOT DO THAT, right? So why is it that we still practically condone things like unsafe sleep, feeding, and car seat habits when THOUSANDS of children are dying?
