It’s interesting to me the competitiveness among other mothers. I used to go to a breastfeeding group every week and other mom’s were super competitive over whose baby was sleeping the least. It was a challenge each week to see who won worst night of sleep. I found it very odd, my little man has been a consistently ok sleeper, but in the beginning he was awesome giving 6 hr stretches throughout the first couple weeks. As the other moms were bragging about their little ones waking up every two hours, I would chime in the great amount of sleep that L was getting. That was usually met with death glares and the ominous “oh that will change.” Yesterday we went for a walk with a friend and she was talking about which schools she wants to send her son to. Once again I felt completely overwhelmed L is 3 1/2 months old, the last thing on my mind is what school he’s going to or whether or not he should be tested for gifted and talented. Heck, I would be happy if I could figure out a way to get L to sleep by himself and stop screaming in the car after 6 at night. But it all boils down to the simple fact that no matter how amazing your kid is, mine is always better, so there!
