So, we’ve resigned ourselves to the fact that we’ve failed our current daughter*. We’ve let her watch some TV. We’ve let her eat some occasional non-organic foods. And, much to my mother-in-law’s chagrin, we’ve let her eat jelly beans. But worst of all, we let her drink out of plastic baby bottles.
We’ll continue to raise her, so she can live out whatever miserable life she can muster. But we’ve decided to try harder with the next one. That being said, we’re looking to possibly move to glass baby bottles. If we can find them. Apparently, they are becoming more difficult to find.
Sure, some say the dangers of plastic baby bottles are overblown, but why take the chance? We don’t want to break another child!
And when they are both grown, and our older daughter asks why her little sibling is so much smarter and stronger and healthier than her…?
We’ve decided that we’ll hug her and tell her, “You’re a… nice girl…”
* Okay, okay, we don’t really believe we’ve failed our daughter. But we are always looking for ways to do things better, so I am hoping to chronicle our decisions, and (probably more-so) ask for advice. So… if anyone has recommendations or can share experiences with glass bottles, please let us know!
