|Ty kissing Acey...this makes me happy!|
And, then when I had Ty, the advice started coming. It started with names. Everyone had an opinion. For someone who had their sister do their first baby registry for them, I was listening. I listened to everyone's advice...really, I did.
But, the best advice I ever heard was...
all of it!
Because MOST of it came from people I love--people that love my boys. Now, I may not have acted upon it or "did" what I was told, but I sure did listen. While I'm very opinionated about some things, my best parenting advice is to be OPEN-MINDED.
Others experiences can HELP you. Every child is different. Personalities are different. Sizes are different. Kids hit milestones at different ages. So, talking to other Mom's is a good thing.

Can you say melt-down city?
So...do what's best for you. Sometimes it's not worth the "fight" so do what makes your kiddo happy (you know, like wearing a Spiderman suit to Kroger).

Sometimes it's okay to let them figure it out. Life's not always fair...neither is sharing!
