for fear of mama's thinking I am bragging.
=Actually for me with ds1 it was the other mothers who would use my son to torment the ones they didn't like. My son was almost 11 pounds and 23 1/2 inches at birth, by eight weeks he was 28 inches, he was HUGE, and started walking at 7 1/2 months, talking at five, other mothers would say 'oh your son is his age' and point to mine....sigh...while they child would be sitting up and drooling mine is the size of a two year old and running around.
Having a child who is exceeding your expectations can be just as hard as one who is not. Does that make any sense?
=lol so true, I have a seven and a half month old now who is not walking yet, its so nice
he's just started crawling.
Also a bright child puts more pressure on you as a mom, they aren't the teletubbies kids that would happily watch tv and do nothing
You got to keep them happy and learning...
The smarter and more mobile you are the more problems you have.
My friend had a baby who is now older and a very bright young man but he just wanted to sit on the couch all day from the time he could sit up. My son was getting into everything, child proof? lol.
