You want my advice?

A friend of mine with a newborn ranted about people giving advice to parents. I don't judge there's tons of crappy advice out there, and there is also an abundance of people who think they have the answers for all kids. I know I don't have the answers, which is why I try to never give advice.

Sure, I can tell you what I did. Well, maybe I can, but I'd probably have to check my notes, because I don't have a clear recollection of what my kids were like as newborns. I remember being a crazy person. I remember dissolving into tears one night at zero-dark-thirty when one of the beans was making it known that sleep wasn't happening, and wondering aloud if I was cut out for this gig. But I no longer have an emotional connection to that memory.
