I think this was probably a day that I was wondering how much longer I could carry them….
. It was August 5th and they were born on the 19th. I told myself I could do it.
As for the Pediatrician, I remember him telling me, “All kids are different.” While I knew that, that also stuck with me. Even though I had twins, they are different. They were different when they were born; they were different when they came home; they were/are different than other babies. So, when I would ask another mom if their baby had done such and such, I knew there was a chance they had, but I knew there was a chance they hadn’t because all babies were different.
It’s important to me that my doctor thinks of my kids as different from any other kid. All kids should get individual attention at the doctor’s office as well as at home. The same as comparing other kiddos. I know there are mommy wars out there and while they are silly, I know it’s hard not to brag about your kid. It’s human nature. When I hear it or even accidentally take part, I just step back and think all kids are different. Sometimes it takes just that phrase to realize not all kids will walk, talk, eat and run the race at the same time in life!
All kids are different and I can do this 🙂
