If you asked me to describe my baby Rowan, I would tell you, without hesitation, that he is sweet, cuddly, affectionate, and funny. He loves to sweep the kitchen floor and always cleans up his toys without being asked. When he is feeling upset, he will hold out his arms and say, "Mama. Hold you?" and he will burrow in tightly.
I have been known, from time to time, to consult an astrologer. And I think baby astrology is interesting, and more often than not, accurate.
So when I found out my anticipated due date, I checked the Zodiac to see what it would say about my baby. More than a year later, was my baby's horoscope on target? Was it a real prediction of what his personality would be like?
Rowan is a Cancer, which is the Crab. (Which is funny because he is anything but!)
Here's his baby zodiac:
Your sweet, tender, sensitive Cancer baby will develop a strong bond with Mommy and may well up with tears at the first sign of separation. A warm embrace and some gentle back-patting will help ease his anxiety. Use tranquil lighting and pastel colors to make your child's nursery a soothing place. Domestic by nature, he'll enjoy playing house with you. Give him toys that let him feel like he's helping out (such as a mini broom-and-dustpan set or a pretend kitchen). And bring out his inherent kindness by showing him how to share with his peers and teaching him good table manners at a young age
Whoa! This is right on! Right down to the broom and dustpan!
Do you believe in astrology? What's your baby's sign? Is it accurate or way off?
