Is it too early to be a bad mom?
Since 18 weeks I have been playing the Baby Plus system to Samara in the womb (http://www.babyplus.com/)--"The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System is a set of sound lessons that are played to the prenatal child. The patented lessons strengthen earliest brain development"--- She responds and kicks back in tune to the beat and generally I feel like it is important for two reasons: 1.) Her Dad picked it out and bought it for her and 2.) It might really work. I play it for an hour every morning at work and an hour at night. But yesterday, in my thanksgiving fervor I forgot! Now she has gone a whole day without it. This comes on the heels of realizing we have not been playing enough music, talking enough or reading to her enough in the womb. I feel like we are bad prenatal communicators. Are you laughing yet? Am I silly for feeling guilty before my baby is even born? I am sure I have plenty of time to mess up after she is here. Why start now?
