We tend to rush everything that we desire without letting it simmer long enough. Many people rush their want for a relationship without even giving themselves enough time to get to know the person. Not only that, they don't even know who they are themselves. You must take the time to be alone to figure things out and figure YOU out!
Before we left the hospital with Lev, the nurse gave us a little lecture about how important it is not to shake the baby. We've all read about awful incidents in the newspaper often enough to realize why the state has now mandated this little chat with new parents--though I found it odd that they not only explain it, but make both parents sign a document promising we would not violently shake Lev.
