Yes, you may have noticed, I have a new ‘look’ on my blog. I’m a ‘little’ older, and I’m no longer in the ‘child’s clothing’ phase. I am more confident, I can wear whatever I want to. And I’m not afraid to do so. I have a sense of self-awareness, and self-confidence.
I’m going to say that I think the best way to get over your baby boy phase is to stop talking about him and just start focusing on what you want to do. A baby is a stage of growth, and a person who’s getting old and wants to feel old and not feel like a kid.
You may be thinking that getting old is a horrible situation to be in, but I think it’s true. That is, until we stop focusing on our age. So as a general rule, if you want to be older, don’t be. If you want to be young, stop talking about being young and start focusing on what you want to do.
As a parent, you would think that your baby would have to grow old. It’s pretty easy to get old if you don’t take the time to stop and take a look around and appreciate what you have. Just ask anyone who’s ever had a child. It’s not some fairy tale where babies go around and make everyone happy. People die from old age every day (a lot of them by the age of 50).
This is where the problem lies. When a baby gets old enough to talk, its usually because they need to. If they cant talk, they can’t help their parents, and it’s your fault. If you cant help your parent, you cant help them anymore. It’s a vicious cycle. The sooner you realise this, the better off you will be.
In a word, denial. The world, and especially the medical community, think that babies are incapable of talking. They think that unless the baby is talking, they are not alive. But the facts are they are speaking and talking. Their parents are listening to them.
Its the same with babies. Many doctors think babies are incapable of speech. They think they have to wait until their parents can talk before they can help them. They think they need to be quiet and still. But their parents are listening to them. Many times when a baby is born, they will not speak until they have been given something to say. Many times it is the most important event of their life. They are the ones that will help them out when they come to their senses.
So, yes, doctors tell parents that their babies are incapable of speech. They don’t have to. The doctors are listening to their babies.
The same goes for us. We are the ones that are being listened to. We are the ones that are helping our babies out of their coma. And sometimes when we hear a baby cry, we are the ones who are helping it out.
I hate to say it, but this is a bad idea. I mean, I’m not saying that you should never listen to your baby, but you should probably listen to them after they’ve been out for some time, with the understanding that they’ll be with us at a later time.
