on parenting

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.
