I think the fact that you care--that you're thinking these thoughts and focused on your parenting--means that you are a good parent doing the best you can do right now. The beginning is so hard. SO HARD. And as women, we do each other a disservice by pretending that we breezed through it--making those who come next feel inadequate if they're not gliding. No one glides. I'm only fearful of parents who don't seem to care. But the ones whose hearts are constantly breaking and rebreaking. The ones who can put a finger and describe their frustrations. The ones who are trying to hard through this time period that is so hard--those are the ones who I know will be gliding once they find their groove.

Dimom--you're going to find your groove.
