Know what I hate? It’s all the answers. All the right answers. That conflict with each other. From smart people. People smarter than me. It frustrates me to no end. Usually this would be in regard to theology (a topic that I can understand transcends our understanding), but this time it is about… … … babies. Becoming Baby-wise, The Baby Whisperer, and so on ad infinitum. Everyone has a plan…that works…the best. Sarah and I have been through books on the best plans before. Operant conditioning for dogs (Don’t Shoot the Dog), diets (The South Beach Diet). Argh. Not that I don’t think there are better ways of doing things than there were many (or just a few) years ago. It’s that, in this commercialistic society, whoever has the most marketing money gets in front of the most people and gets to be the “best”. I don’t have the whole system figured out yet, but I’ve got enough figured out to know that not all of the Number One New York Times Bestsellers have it all figured out. This is aside from all the (loving and mostly wanted) advice that friends are giving us. My favorite advice is: “It’s hard to mess them up” and “Do what works now…you can put them on a schedule later.” I’m done for now…going to go read some more in the right book and maybe find out about something else we’ve been doing wrong for 6 weeks.
