Yea, I used to have a friend w/o any kids that I eventually de-friended for one bc she always had snide little comments about my parenting and how she'd do things differently, yadda yadda. Well, she's got a kid now and I often wonder if it's occurred to her yet about how she had nooo idea WTH she was talking about before and that she was being a jerk! haha.. probably not.
My BFF is also not a parent yet and she is completely non-judgmental. She realizes that she won't really know until she's been there. She has an open mind and only knows what she thinks or suspects she'll be like or do as a parent. One reason I love her so much is her attitude about this kind of stuff. But, she's a diamond in the rough.
I didn't really have time to have opinions pre-children. I got pregnant at the age of 20. I just kinda went with whatever DH wanted to do and I'm glad I was so open minded bc it was a lot smoother transition into finding a natural parenting groove.

Hahaha!! This is perfect! I laughed out loud at the "going to the dentist will be the most relaxing thing you have time for" part. I remember thinking that when my son was a month old and I had an appointment! I have another appointment scheduled for August 1st and I know I'll be thinking that again!
This scared the crap out of me, but I laughed anyway. I try not to judge parents except in extreme situations (such as seeing a child dragged through a parking lot or a father smack a daughter across the face). I have no idea what I'm doing with this kid, even though I've had a lot of experience with babies. I know it'll be different with my own and I'm hoping that I keep an open mind.
