Interview with a Daddy

Welcome to the February Carnival of Natural Parenting: Love and partners!

This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Carnival of Natural Parenting hosted by Hobo Mama and Code Name: Mama. This month we’re writing about how a co-parent has or has not supported us in our dedication to natural parenting. Please read to the end to find a list of links to the other carnival participants.

I think it’s a fairly accurate representation of our dynamic. Please bear in mind that this took place right before bedtime.

NB: Thank you very much for agreeing to be interviewed by me. Do you know why I’m interviewing you?

C: No, I do not.

NB: Do you care?

C: (laughs) Not really.
