Sorry, I must sound like a bitter woman! Yes, I had a lot of these unwelcome comments (colleagues, relatives, pediatrician...) that can be really hurtful and make you doubt on top of what is already a difficult task.
Not at all. We all go through this sooner or later, so your comment made me laugh!

Sorry to hear it. We had a few too: my daughter's teacher (who meant well, but suggested we switch to OPOL, so we agreed to disagree and moved on), then colleagues who think we're 'teaching' them, as in a classroom setting instead of playing with them (I can't help but laugh when I think about this one ) or friends who think we're taking it too far. But most people think it's great and told us they wished they could do the same for their children. In the beginning, it may have bothered me more, but now, I just shrug it off.
Caro C.: My daughter, 2yo was rocking her bunny while trying to sing her own way. This was something completely new so I made a video... just s couple of seconds had passed when she clearly says a whole spontaneous sentence in the mL: "this is the music". #EpicWin

Caro C.: It is just now, many hours later that I came to savour the moment since I had a pretty busy/moved day... so excited about this, something small but meaningful 😍😁
