26/30 {Popular notion}

What popular notion do you think the world has most wrong?

I think that we are forcing our children to grow up too quickly. I feel like when I'm out and about people ask about weaning , bottle to sippy cup, taking away his binky, is he walking and I mean the list just goes on and on. It's not just with Austin either! Is Allyson potty trained? How many words does she say? She's still in a crib?!? Pacis?? What?!? I really just feel like we push our little ones to do things before they are really ready. People are always telling me to just enjoy this time because it passes in no time. I'm really trying to treasure this time that I have with my kids while they are still little but I can't help but feel pressure to help them grow up faster. I'm just going to relax my thoughts. I know that Austin and Ally will eventually ditch the pacis. Allyson won't always be in a crib or diapers. I'm going to just enjoy these moments before they are gone. 


  1. I'm 100% with you on this one! Of course, I don't think it stops with babies. We want our kids to grow up so incredibly fast these days. Oh, and no judgement from me...I am the mom that tries to keep my kids in cribs and didn't potty train until the latest time possible!

  2. Oh exactly!! It's not just the little ones. I've been struggling with buying clothes for Aubrey because they are just too grown up for me. I mean does she NEED spaghetti strap tank top. No! Anywho. I knew you'd understand! :)
