Being a parent is tough a lot of the time - well, that has been my experience. I just spent 2 hours trying to get DS2 to go to sleep unswaddled and he has finally gone down. Not my MOST satisfying parenting moment, but made me feel a sense of achievement somehow. I was wondering what people would say were their most satisfying parenting moments?? Yesterday we went to a party and DS1 ran around saying 'hello' to everyone and giving them high-fives and was interacting so happily with everyone that we got lots of comments about what a lovely little boy he is. It made me feel so happy given that he has been socially awkward since he was about 1 and cried at the sight of strangers. MCHN and paed made a big deal out of it....but he is now doing really well. That gives me a huge sense of satisfaction as we have made a big effort to help him feel more comfortable in social situations and it seems to have paid off.
