Parenting is like dancing. You have to find your rhythm. You have to listen to and follow the beat. You have to go with the flow.
When "Wake Me Up Before You Go, Go" comes on, you can't rail against it by continuing to waltz. And when the tune changes to "Blue Danube," you can't be rocking The Watusie.
Listen to your babe. She is your music. Dance with her, not against her. It's a partnership.
I hope you dance.
