bringing up bebe, espresso, and cereal.
perfectly appropriate afternoon pick-me-up.
time is passing by at warp speed. the weather seems like its adjusted to spring temps and, more importantly, SCANDAL is back on (YAS!!). can i just say, the first episode of the new season was magic. yes, magic. some say this show is their guilty pleasure. no, its pure pleasure. no guilt. none at all.
i started reading bringing up bebe and i have some thoughts.
-i don't believe that the french don't believe in discipline
-the french don't give their kids snacks??? only ONE midday snack.
-oh and french women barely ever indulge in a midday snack to show their kids that they can resist it when they get older too. hmm.
-i would realllllly love a fresh baguette.
-i guess ill go to lee's sandwiches at some point tonight.
with all this said, i find this book really...interesting! like how most french parents get their children to sleep through the night within 2 months. im sure they'll answer a lot of my questions in later chapters, but can 2 month old infants survive without eating for 12 hours?!!!! although im reading this book with, to be honest, unwarranted, skepticism (bc ive obviously never had a child), im also really intrigued and fascinated by this style parenting. its kind of bohemian/free spirited meets soup nazi. completely paradoxical, but the book explains that french parents don't have a schedule for napping or sleeping, they believe that the children do this on their own, so no need to "sleep train,"like they "find themselves" at 2 months old, but on the flip side, NO SNACK FOR YOU. i like this book.
more thoughts to come, as i continue to read.
belly getting pointy. arms getting pointy as well.
i love her so, so much.
