no grudges

in the day to day, something i love about having a baby is that when you do something that they don't like, they don't hold it against you. they don't refuse to talk to you because you left them in their crib to cry for 25 minutes. they don't write you a mean email if you put them in the nursery at church. they don't bring up the fact that 3 weeks ago, you gave them a piece of food that was too big for them and they gagged on it and threw up. nope. babies don't hold any of those things against you. when you come and get them out of their crib, pick them up at the nursery, or give them their next chunk of food, they put their arms out and just want you and no one else. i love that about my baby.

I love that about your baby too.

Now if we could just get the husbands to stop holding grudges life would be golden :)

oh Rebecca that is so true. I don't know if it's just that their memory is so small or if they intuitively understand that the baby-mommy love you have is way too important for grudges.
