Re: Looking for support :(
Cave baby in the modern world- that's it in a nutshell. Cave baby doesn't know about cars or clocks or bottles or schedules. All she knows is that she is safe and warm and fed in mom's arms, and cold, lonely, and potentially hungry when not in mom's arms. And that if she's detached from mom, the's a good chance that she'll get snapped up by a sabretooth tiger.
It can be tough to go to someone hoping for sympathy and instead get a heaping helping of negative advice. If this happens again, I suggest simply stopping your mom and saying "I need you to tell me that I am a wonderful mom, and that I am doing everything right, and that this is a short period in my life that I will not regret".
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
