Culture Jamming…….THE ONLY SAFE WAY TO WEAR A BABY SUPPORTS THEM FROM KNEE TO KNEE NOT BY THE CROTCH!
I’m sorry but this is crap.
I was spanked as a child. That has absolutely nothing to do with what kind of person I’ve grown to be. All it did was teach me to respect my parents and do as I was told. And I still respect the hell out of my mum. Everyone is entitled to raise their shit machine however they want, but get the fuck off of your high horse. You are no better than a parent who does spank their child. You just have a different means of discipline.
Hahaha so your eating disorder, self harm and depression have nothing to do with being hit as a child. Youre fooling yourself dear.
And damn right i will judge any parent who lays a hand on a child! They have no rifht end of
Why do you even follow me?
It’s really said that some people out there think it’s okay to use violence towards a child.
You did not learn to respect, you learned to fear consequences.
The saddest part is when someone says ‘I deserved being spanked for what I did’.. So if you did the same now that you’re an adult and your parents came up to you and spanked you, would that be okay?
Why not? Because it’s your body? Violence is not the answer?
Why does that not apply to children?
Shouldn’t an adult know better? Even more so than a child?
Does that mean if a child deserves a spanking, an adult deserves fractures and internal bleeding?

It all began when my lo, Rafael, turned 6mo. I had been getting some pressure, which I ignored, to start him on solids. We had been contemplating which approach to take. To either introduce our foods, to try the purees WIC gave us, or to try rice cereal. Cereal was out immediately! Then we decided, since Organic fruits/veg are so freaking expensive we tried the free purees. He hated them. He was completely uninterested when I tried again 2 weeks later. We tried every 2 weeks, without success, until he was 8mo. But his lack of interest meant I continued to nurse him exclusively, which was nice J
At 8mo he started showing some interest. I started giving him food from my plate and he’d eat it! I started with little bits of banana or cereal, Cherrios specifically. Then came baby puffs and all sorts of other snacks. He’s now 11mo and eats snack throughout the day. He still nurses the same, but now he has his sippy cup on occasion.
He eats cheese, fruits, veggies, yogurt, and various snacks now. He loves Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies ;)
The key to any parenting method is to remember your baby is an individual. She/he will most likely not stick to any prescribed pattern of habits and with forge their own way. Instead of sticking to a timetable, I truly allowed my son to lead our choices. We didn’t force him on solids because he turned 6 months. We let him show us when he was ready. This is REAL baby-led weaning. He will has his nursies, but now he has other options. Some days he eats lots of solids, other days he strictly nurses…the point of baby-led weaning is to do exactly that, let baby lead!
Good Luck on your Baby-Led Weaning and I hope this is of some benefit to you J
Specific List of Food:
Little Shreds of Chicken
Bits of Banana and Cantaloupe
Usually he eats some of whatever we have for dinner
Im going to be changing both the name and purpose of this blog. I no longer find browsing random crap entertaining and I have noticed throughout this journey of motherhood that I have a few gems of wisdom on certain topics. I want to use this blog for. To answer popular mothering questions and popular topics. I will post weekly about what’s on my mothers groups mind. Enjoy ;)
Regarding your post about when your Bubba is old enough to explain Christmas too: Personally, I think that you should take your own views out of the discussion. Just explain that some people believe that there is a god etc and some people believe...you get the idea. You can then explain that you believe in both and that daddy only believes in the god one. Tell him not to worry, that he doesn't have to make his mind up now, he can decide when he older. Surely you want him to just enjoy Christmas!
I actually love this! THANKS!
So…I got more shitty news this week…both of my brothers knocked up the girls they just started dating :’( This makes baby #4 for Jeremy, at age 24 and #1 for Josh at age 20. Josh is due to go back to jail in January, but he could raise $700 and stat out. Neither of the boys work, although Jeremy is a mechanic and is just outta work right now. Josh doesn’t have more than an 8th grade education. I’m just so sad for these children…I know the love my child gets from the stability of our home and marriage and I believe every child deserves it. Personally, I feel if you can’t give them that, you shouldn’t be having children! And not getting pregnant is easy and cheap, babies cost $1000’s a year!!!
