When American journalist Pamela Druckerman has a baby in Paris, she
doesn't aspire to become a "French parent." French parenting isn't a
known thing, like French fashion or French cheese. Even French parents
themselves insist they aren't doing anything special.
Yet, the French children Druckerman knows sleep through the night at
two or three months old while those of her American friends take a year
or more. French kids eat well-rounded meals that are more likely to
include braised leeks than chicken nuggets. And while her American
friends spend their visits resolving spats between their kids, her
French friends sip coffee while the kids play.
I heard about this book from Mint and
then a friend sent me a message with the same blog link. I was killing
time in a book store and I thought I would give it a read. I am more
than half way through the book and I am loving it!
am not planning on reading any more baby books at the moment because
there is so much overwhelming info in all of them and a lot of it is
stuff that will make me worry. I already have anxiety and the last thing
I need is to read something that will stress me out.
I am however, looking for some good mommy blogs. If you know of any please let me know. Thanks!
This month I want to focus on creating something everyday. It can be taking more photos to knitting a sweater. Over the past few months I have been really lazy with my creative side. I once was art journaling every night and then one day I just stopped and haven't art journals since. I have been quite in all area of my life lately because so much is changing and I am trying to take it all in.
In April I choose....
to start quilting
to work on Project Life
to take more photo of my everyday
to bake a few times this month
to work on my one little word binder (photos coming soon)
What kind of project are you working on this month?
