I was up bright and early this morning, thanks to a certain adorable 1 month old baby. Josie awoke for a feeding at 5:45 am, and decided that it was time to be awake for the day. Since she had just slept for 7 straight hours, I obliged, went to a very early Mass and I’m now catching up on my google reader. In doing so, I came across this WSJ article, “Why French Parents are Superior,” which I found fascinating. It captures my parenting philosophy quite well. The next time someone is the supermarket asks me how I do it, I’m going to say, “my kids sleep, I mean it when I say no, and I’m not a helicopter parent.” And in all seriousness, if any of those three things were not true, I’d be insane right now.
