What I learned in counseling today

1. Sometimes you can't just be tolerant of the situation, you actually have to genuinely support it.

2. Being over-controlling of how things go with your baby may not be the most productive thing but it's all part of the process and is normal to go through.

3. It's interesting how you can want to hit someone, feel sorry for them, and really like them all at the same time.

4. It's hard to be encouraging to your spouse (even though it might be easy to do so for others) because sometimes we're not encouraging to ourselves. (there was actually a lot more to that... but kind of hard to convey right now while I am typing for some reason)

5. ... oh great... there was something else that I can't remember... uh oh.

Thank you girl for writing back. I think as moms (especially new ones) we worry too much. I know I do. But it is nice to see someone who co-sleeping has worked out for. With our little linebacker, 6 months may be it for us too! Hope everything is going well for you!
