The Day I Ruined the Baby

For 15 months, I tried to do everything right.  I studied articles from baby websites and magazines, attended parenting education classes, and compared best practices with other moms. I followed a schedule, served organic produce, limited sweets, kept the TV off, and faithfully brushed Viv’s six tiny teeth every night in the bath.

I’m not saying I was a perfect mom.  I screwed up plenty—just not on purpose.

Then my daughter got her first fever and all my rules went out the window…

Read the rest at Circle of Moms where I am guest blogging.  (I know, what a slut.  Guest blogging all over town.)  And by all means, leave a comment – there or here.  Thanks!
