Something you should NEVER say to a new parent.

On Sunday I was asked multiple times how I'm doing as a new parent. I mostly replied that I'm well, just tired.

One person really threw me for a loop with a comment that I didn't expect- he said that when he babysits, he really doesn't mind the crying. He said he knows it's just the baby's way of communicating and it just means that he has to do something to satisfy the baby's needs.

Oh really? I WISH I HAD KNOWN THAT! All this time I've just been looking at Aspen at 3am not knowing what on earth to do to make the crying stop. I'm so glad I was enlightened.

Perhaps when I've tried to feed, burp, change and soothe Aspen, and she hasn't stopped crying, I'll give this expert babysitter a call and have HIM fix it.
