I just finished reading the book, Bringing Up Bebe, by Pamela Druckerman. It was great! Obviously, I don't believe that EVERY french parent instills impeccable manners in their children, or that EVERY American parent lets their kid eat chicken fingers for every meal, but overall the book was entertaining. It made me think about what traits I really want Soren to have, and which ones are nice, but not a necessity.
Soren had his first day of daycare yesterday! It went really, really well. He was the only baby there (only one other little girl goes there now), and the daycare woman told us over and over again how sweet he was. He slept, ate, played, and went to the park. When Tyler picked him up at the end of the day, he cried! I don't think we could have hoped for anything better. I still feel a little badly about not spending every day with him, but if I can't be there with him at least I know he's having a good time.
