Adventures in Parenting
So... I got this book in the mail today from the DPHHS called "Adventures in Parenting: How Responding, Preventing, Monitoring, Mentoring and Modeling can help you be a successful parent".
Not sure why I got it, but it sure was a nice thing to get. Do you read any parenting books?
I read a few Dr. Sears books early on (Fussy Baby Book, Sleep Book), Happiest Baby on the Block, and I'm still reading one called the Science of Parenting, which reads a lot like a fancy school textbook, but is really informative. I also am in the middle of a book called Nurturing the Soul of Your Family: 10 Ways to Reconnect and Find Peace in Everyday Life, which is kind of a parenting book, but kind of not, too.
Also, it's probably best to read during your first pregnancy, because it applies to the first three months, or the "last trimester," and deals with concerns that are normally thought of as colic.
Now.. almost 5 months into it, I love the mom conversations I've had and realize so much of this is trial and error on the first run!
