Do you find yourself obsessing over one major thing regarding motherhood? You know, like there is that one thing that just bugs you more than anything and you find yourself doing everything in your power to not be that way or to make sure your baby is not that way?
Like, "My baby must know her alphabet before she is two" or "My baby will NEVER sleep in a crib--co-sleeping is the only way to go" or "Our nursery will never be pink" or "Our nursery will never be blue" or "My daughter will never wear pants".
Okay that might sound vague. Let me explain. See, I have this thing.
With baby bottles.
I'm not sure if it's because I breastfed? Maybe? Even though Cub took bottles from Day One?? Whatever the reason, I did NOT want Cub to be on bottles past his first birthday. Even though we used Dr. Brown's bottles and I loved them. I introduced a sippy cup to him at five months and he was able to drink from one by six months. By eight months he was weaned and drinking completely from sippy cups. No more bottles.
I'm not sure why I was so anti-bottle. What's the big deal? Was it the kids I saw who were permanently attached to their baby bottles at the age of two? Maybe. But they tend to be the exception, not the norm. Meh. Either way, I was resolute that Cub was going to be a sippy cup pro as soon as possible. Thankfully, he was, which I think had more to do with him than me. You can't force that kind of thing.
Am I really weird? You can tell me if I am. Say, "Katie. That is WEIRD."
I won't be offended.
What about you? Do you find yourself obsessing over certain things a la bebe ... and you aren't sure why?

(Or, if you think that would be a cruel, cruel joke to play on a pregnant lady, leave a comment.)
(Even if it only says, "Katie, you are WEIRD.")
(Have a lovely day.)
