If you know me at all, you know that I’m the biggest worry-wart of all time. I’m surprised that I don’t have an ulcer. My worry moved to an all time high once India was born and after Zoe, well lets just say, it’s amazing I haven’t been taken away. I am ridiculously over protective. To a fault. I know this and have known for years that at some point, I would have to change. Change is NOT easy, it makes my head hurt. I should have started working on it earlier, because my poor little Zoe is EXACTLY like me and sometimes worse. Which is completely and totally my fault. I guess you can love and protect them too much.
I’m reading a book on this very topic, which is why I bring it up. It’s called Free-Range Kids, How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without going Nuts with Worry), by Lenore Skenazy. So far, I have really enjoyed it. Eye-opening is an understatement. This book was written for me. Just a little recommend for all you moms who fear and worry and stress way way way too much.
