Is it just me? Baby edition!

Babies....I know right?
This is the mommy side attempting to blog about life with baby while asking the question....Is it just me?

-Am I still the only one out there NOT ok with putting their kid on a leash?  Whatever happened to giving your kid "the stare" that put them right in their place and they better not to run off, or else??  If anyone sees me put a leash on my kid, please print out this blog entry in big bold font on a t-shirt labeled "hypocrite!"

-When I was pregnant, I hated unsolicited advice from other moms and swore I'd never be that way.  And yet, on a several occasions I caught myself doing what I despised!!  Tsk Tsk mommy.

-Am I the only one seriously disturbed about preaching babies??  Just saw some random youtube videos that have babies and kids preaching in a church.  Clearly they are fed this stuff how can they possibly at the young age of 18 months (yes I said 18 months) understand what is happening around them? This one baby, clearly not "speaking" but actively preaching to a parish!  With people yelling Amen! and Hallelujah! I'm disturbed.

-When did babies get so gross?  I don't recall ever being warned that once you become a parent you're likely to be sneezed on, pooped on, peed on, puked on, all on?!?  All you hear is aww babies are great, they change your life.  I could have used a little warning, "hey, one day your child might sneeze right into your mouth."  GROSS (unless you see it as a way of your baby sharing their love)

-Why can't parents find the line between sharing good news about their child and bragging about them?  I know I've caught myself doing it too <wagging finger at myself> I try my best to keep it balanced but every once in a while, talking to another parent brings out this verbal diarrhea and insist on talking about all my child's accomplishments.  To all parents (and myself) lets take it back a notch!

Heck, maybe it is just me...
