Counter-cultural Moment

You know you've been steeped in counter-cultural ideas and don't cling to what society thinks is 'normal', when you have this conversation, as I did this morning.

Sheila: "...but I am a proponent of attachment parenting*..."

Nice lady: *giant pause and blank stare* "What do you mean by 'attachment parenting'?"

Sheila: "Well, for instance, if I had a two-year old, I probably wouldn't leave them in the care of someone I've never met."

Nice lady: *confused look* "Oh."


Crazy girl,
Sheila

*Attachment Parenting on Wikipedia.
