HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ME! All of the attention TIME is giving attachment parenting has me giddy. There was never a moment when I said, “I am going to be an attached parent”. There a hundred moments where I say, “You felt that way, too?!” as I hear stories of mother’s following their hearts. I am glad people are talking about it!
Knowing there are others practicing this philosophy helps confirm I haven't lost my mind from lack of sleep.
Community is everything on this adventure we are on. I feel refueled each time I hear the story of a mom that listens to her instincts in parenting. It gives me permission to continue on, knowing my instincts are valid.
