Surviving Motherhood

To replace my View watching, I’ve started watching a show that’s on TLC. It’s called “Surviving Motherhood.”
I really like it (but it’s on at like 10 am so I do have to Tivo it). So, they get all these moms together with children of varying ages. Each day they spotlight a specific mom and talk about her “main” problem and they get advice from experts and then the moms sit around and talk about it for a while, and then usually they have a 2nd topic that the group discusses.
So, today the main topic was night terrors (which usually start between 2.5-3.5). Good information was given. The pediatrician said the same thing as the woman’s pediatrician and that you need to let your child get through it and you shouldn’t go in there and try and comfort them (with a true night terror they don’t even know you’re there anyway). So funny when one mom said that was BS that a true professional would have better advice then that. She wanted them to refer her to a sleep specialist. Anyway, it’s just really interesting to see how different people respond on the show.
I was thinking of doing some blogs on their topics. They’re pretty interesting and there are as many ways to parents are there are children…
Good munching on my whole wheat crackers TV time. :)

    Sounds like a way interesting show. Too bad I don’t have TLC. It’s hard to listen to the medical professionals sometimes when you feel your child is hurting.

    We never really had to deal with the night terror thing. Maybe once or twice.

    OK, Hilly! I am SOOOO far behind on your blog. Sorry!

    I just want you to know that I’m amazed at your ability to “survive motherhood!” Everytime I chat with you you have some cool project going, or you are off to go walking or something wonderful like that. You seem to always have it all together! I wish I could be like that just one day of the week. Maybe if I had High-speed internet it would be easier?!

    I’ve thought about watching this show. Maybe I should tune in!

    Wow – that show sounds like it is more worth watching than the view. I just heard a commercial today for it and I was like man – Rosie sounds so angry all the time now. :-)
