i feel a lot more aware of anything to do with parenting these days because i may be on the onset towards parenthood in the next handful of years.
i am worried that i won’t know how to be a good parent. i know i have one of those big teaching flaws in that every time the baby falls, i freak out. i worry that they’re hurt. that they’ll cry. i don’t want them to be hurt. but in reality, i know that my reaction only exacerbates theirs. and if i remain calm, they may have a chance to learn to be calm as well.
i myself, freak out quite a bit when things go unexpected – like my whole flight situation last night that went totally awry.
i saw this on fb today. so amazing.
