My mom, how could I forget her? She has helped me so much with the kids. When I work she watches them, or when I need a break, or I'm sick.
How dare I forget her!!!

i was thinking the same thing jennifer, lol! but i do believe that we love our children equally, i just can't imagine breastfeeding after my short stent with trying it, i can't imagine just letting my child be miserable and have no sleep, and i can't imagine myself being miserable and having no sleep, when CIO (now i'm talking more of a ferber method, not leaving the kid to wail for hours) works wonders and hasn't damaged my kids in the least. i believe it's helped them in many ways actually.
and babywearing i tried with my last one, hated it. lol. so did my son! :)

*And sorta on these same lines...I can't imagine parenting without my eyesight and hearing. I know that people do it all the time, but sometimes I have those moments where I wonder how I would do things differently with my son if I couldn't see or hear. It would make a hard job a thousand times harder, I think.
