When people tell me that being a parent is challenging I wonder what they are doing wrong. Honestly, I would not say that I am the best parent on the planet but I also do not think that I am doing too shabby, and, I cannot say that the entire process is all that stressful for me, and maybe I just got seriously lucky by having a very easy baby! I can tell you, he sure does not cry as much as all of the other kids seem to! Since I brought him home, he has been seriously easy to deal with as long as we have one basic amenity – indoor air temperature control. I remember the moment when I walked in the front door with our newborn baby and felt the warm breeze coming from our central oil furnace, however there was a gentle flow of air coming out of the vent directly over the front door. The warmth felt really amazing to me and obviously it did to our baby, as well. I think this, because he immediately stopped fussing and went right to sleep, however from that day forward, we had no problems keeping our child quiet and delighted as long as the heating, cooling, and ventilation plan was running. If he was throwing a fit, we would simply need to adjust the thermostat so that our central heating and cooling units would kick into gear! Once the a/c or forced air furnace were operating, everything was hunky-dory again. However, this is a necessity that we cannot always control. When we are at a restaurant or someone else’s residence, we have to be as close to the air vents as possible and pray that they have a good working Heating and A/C system. Other than dragging around a portable heating and cooling unit, I suppose that parenthood has been seriously easy.
