The Sarahs tell it like it is, sharing the salty + sweet, big city + small town, ups + downs, the pretty + not so much of modern motherhood.
How great is this?
I love fall.

"But trying to keep your child in your bra is not the answer."
Okay. Now I've read the whole thing, and I will say that there's a happy medium. We were BIG on independent sleeping after six months, but our babies were pretty much attached to my chest before that. I'm glad for both. And I'm glad for sleep.
She had me laughing out loud with the "there's no exit strategy" and "turn that sling into a slingshot."
Thanks for sharing!
The third article is a bit harsh, no? Especially with all your recent posts about non-judging and communication as mothers rather than as a adversaries? Parenting is too difficult to figure out as it is, the harsh tones of this article seem fraught with hate rather than with love. Part of the reason I subscribe to attachment parenting is my fundamental belief that there is not enough attachment in our world but that doesn't mean I would ever say that someone who did CIO was not attached to their child. Rather, I felt that for me, attachment parenting was the way that I (meaning, myself, me, my own heart) could best relate to my child in our relationship, in our time, in the space that we lived in, during that particular time of our lives. Perhaps with another child that would change...perhaps in a different place that could change. Who knows, but this Ms. Kraus seems to have it all figured out already....where is the joy in that?
Fair enough sabs. I think the tone was meant to be a little flippant but still. With the media all to willing to jump on the Mommy Wars, she might have been a little less judgmental.
