Books? Where we're going, we don't need books...

I never thought I'd say this as a teacher- but I'm putting away the books, for GOOD.  Not all of the books, mind you (in fact, I'm reading To Kill a Mockingbird with Beck as we type). Nope, just the ones that are marketed toward parents.  You know, the Spock-ish, "what to expect" kinds.  Why?  Because I don't need them.  I've got something that no book, blog, website, or magazine can publish- common sense.  Mom-stincts.  Whatever you want to call it, it's already proven to be far more accurate, not to mention less fear inducing, than those parenting books.  (That, and I have my own Mom and the doc on speed dial.  We've got this covered.)
