This Is Why I Avoid the Parenting Books

It's the same old story. Your seven-month old baby won't roll over, and someone kindly points out that rolling over is a six-month milestone. You panic. You kill yourself teaching her. She learns at seven-months and one week old, and your blissful easy life at the changing table is suddenly over. And to think that you wasted all that energy googling "infant signs of autism" for two hours.

Why worry? It is obvious by looking at her that Olivia is wonderful. What's a month? Olivia also must instinctively know that being on time is overrated, and she has chosen to be fashionably late.

The more I read this blog, the more I realize that with the fewest words, you have said the most.
