Introducing the Amazing Baby Mind Reader
I used to stand on the stoop every evening at the same time: bouncing up and down with my infant son in the carrier, hoping that the sights and smells of the outdoors would calm him – or me. This stage felt neverending.
One day my neighbour said to me in passing: "so I guess things are easier? I haven’t seen you on the doorstep this week."
Then it struck me, things were easier. He had stopped having screaming at the witching hour and I hadn’t even noticed!
What was it I pondered: had I learned his language, had I figured out the key to parenting my baby? I patted myself on the back, I was obviously such a fantastic mother! Dr. Sears would award me his highest praise: I was a highly responsive parent of a high needs baby. Phew.
