Props to the Mommy Blog for reviewing “This Gigantic Robot Kills” as family-friendly driving music. You can read the awesome review here!
as a mom i find it sexy whenever my 5-month-old whines because it’s a sign of my baby’s need for mommy. he constantly cries to be soothed and lulled by mommy. he sleeps alone in a heart-shaped crib and his nightly fears of the dark need to be mitigated. bottle-feeding works only occasionally. humming cradle songs to my sweet child sometimes works..
tonight i’m going to try the william blake verses again…it worked the last time i read them to my baby and he smiled..he still whined a bit but he smiled while whining…he wanted me..he seemed to enjoy blake, “pleasant streams…then the dreadful night shall break..sweet smiles in the night, hover over my delight..sweet moans, sweeter smiles..secret joys and secret smiles…dovelike sighs.. little pretty infant wiles.” Let me know if any parent out there has other suggestions…
changing his diapers sometimes works. playing mc lars’ music def doesn’t always work. the louder i played that gigantic robot kills album, the louder my adhd baby yelled…take some naps boy. we call diaper “nappy” here in the uk. i’m not a fan of mc lars…read that mommy blog about mc lars’ music…
i ordered the gigantic robot album on amazon and played it to my baby last night…he screamed so i think i have to try something else tonight…interesting and fun raps but my baby needs to be calmed. maybe mc lars can work on a children’s album one day. babies seem to love your voice..it gets them excited and screaming for mommy’s attention even though the gigantic album is disturbingly frightening that he probably suffered from nightmares! my baby needs to feel protected so that he can sleep peacefully and sound..like baby jesus.
sighs..child-rearing is fun but it is also sexily terrifying…
As moms we should not be afraid to cry. The babies cry and we seem to have forgotten how to cry properly as adults. Who are going to soothe us when we cry? Do we cry in front of the children? We cannot. Do we pacify ourselves or should we expect our husbands to when many of them are emotionally distant from their wives and already much stressed out by obligations from work? My husband has to work for 12 hours a day to support our family. I love him but I also feel that he is more committed to his boss than he is to me. I cry a lot because of this. Why is he emotionally committed 24/7 to a boss who only values his labor?
Why can’t he perceive it that I love him?
Our societies hardly allow any room for the humane expression of different kinds of feelings to be heard and understood. When we emote, we are blamed and called weak and wimpy. Can we learn from each other and accept people for who they are? Can we appreciate sensitivity and see that as beauty? Why is there so much injustice in this world? Are children born to suffer and be abused in school? If not, what can we mothers do to ensure that our children grow up in a loving, safe, and hopefully happy environment when peace in this world can never be restored? Why are political leaders always sc***ing things up for our future generations? How many people out there actually care or do most of us just want to earn enough to maintain a living so that some of us can get to “enjoy life” while staying blind to human suffering?
As a very affectionate mom I am dejected that many people who can make everyday choices are ruining our planet for my two comely daughters and my unborn children who embody the only hope of a loving future for our family.
Babies’ coos are the sweetest sounds a mother can possibly listen to.
I can spend hours sitting here staring at the magazine cover.
Placing kids on drug treatments like Vyvanase would not do anything to the root cause of ADD. It simply treats the symptoms. Meds don’t do anything at all about what is basically disfunctional with them. I will not believe that medicating our boy will be the most beneficial I’m able to do for our kid, If I comply with my physicians idea to put my boy upon medication such as Dexedrine, just how long could it be before I know if this was a good idea or not?
