I sometimes feel like an alien in my "real" world. Today, at our baby-gym, there was talk about how a the babies need to learn the meaning of the word "no".
I was like: 10 month old? You cannot be serious!
They were serious. Really, really serious. And when I said something like: I just put the stuff away that they are not allowed to have ?!? the other parents warned me how I will "miss a window" and they "will never learn it" and "she knows EXACTLY that she is not allowed to touch that" (like a laptop - something that is REALLY difficult to move out of the way )
It drives me crazy sometimes. Kids are "out there to get you" - and all they do is just that, "trying their limits" - and "you need to stay on top of it"
I feel so lonely sometimes, not having anyone to talk to ...
