So many people ask, “Is she a good baby?”
I look at them questioningly. They clarify, ”Does she sleep through the night or cry all the time, that sort of thing.”
And this is what I say.
She is easy-going. Sometimes she has issues but she is always good.
I don’t believe there can be a bad baby.
Just a misunderstood baby. A mismanaged baby.
Because when things (or babies) don’t turn out the way we expect, or we lack patience or confidence, then we call this “bad”.
And we may unwittingly end up creating a confused person who considers themselves bad.
No baby asks to be born. And they certainly have every right to cry if they’re hungry, angry, sleepy, or in pain.
I have to admit, where I thought my first baby was high maintenance, it was probably my high anxiety.
Seeing how the Divine Miss Fi is so mellow, she is everything I hoped she’d be.
I will handle the rest and she’ll always be a Good Baby.
