"What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and feeble mentality of the average adult." - Sigmund Freud (1856 - 1939)
I find this quote simultaneously amusing and, on some days, very apt! Especially as I am hip-deep in the "testing one's boundaries" period with Chance. I can see his little mind working to get around me. And sometimes he is even so blunt as to simply put his fingers in his ears. I don't know where he learned that, but it's awfully hard to keep a straight face. (I know I'll laugh when I bludgeon the person who taught it to him.) Overall, I think I'm doing OK (I think). I finished reading "Raising a Happy Unspoiled Child" (see, I told ya I'd get around to it; I'm only partially slacker) and I'm partway through "Touchpoints". Good discipline tips, people. Good tips.
I know I've been a little light on blogging this week, but I'll be back soon. Though, I'm probably only going to post three times a week for a while. With school I'm not sure yet what my time will be like, and ironically my work load is picking up right as I go back to school. (The Universe loves me like that.) Plus, the less I blog the less chance I will write posts heavily influenced by school... 'cause I'm thinking most people don't come here to hear about genres in American Literature. (We're starting off with slave narratives, by the way. Next up, suffragettes and feminism! But don't worry, guys, this is a "No Man-Bashing" zone.)
OK, so anyways! New addition to The Things They Don't Tell You in Lamaze list! Take a look and I'll be back shortly. Probably with more explanation than you ever wanted to know. (Dum dum DUM! That's called "foreshadowing". See? Some education does a slacker good.)
