I am always behind the times. Ok- not always- but usually.
However... I have noticed something. My parenting style is ahead of the curve.
Before baby-wearing was in I wore my babies (thanks to some wonderful women for introducing that to me). I would tell so many people about how amazing baby-wearing and no one would listen to me. Now of course these same women are eager to try baby-wearing.
Before cloth diapers were in again, I was eagerly researching and trying them. No one believed me when I said that they are not that hard.
Breastfeeding. I am an extended tandem breast feeding mom. 8 years ago I would never have imagined myself here. Now more and more mothers are electing to breastfeed and some are even breastfeeding 2 children. This is so exciting!
Things that I did which were firmly on the crunchy edge of the spectrum are now moving towards mainstream.
I must admit I am feeling a little proud right now. I really really want to loudly and obnoxiously sing "told you so!!!" but I will refrain- and instead take pleasure knowing that children are having their needs met.
