with airborne babies (Karen's all the way airborne; Sroufe's being lifted high in the air by a mama).
This is bizarre. It's right up there with that evil book I mentioned months ago (0838576656 -- discussed on May 10, 2005. Took a while to find that post. That would be the book about birth that completely erases the mother. And I do mean completely.). Why would, not one, but _two_ books about attachment depict a baby being held up/thrown up into the air? This is _not_ something that one does to a baby most days (I don't think, anyway). Sure, exciting fun, but not primary caregiver exciting fun. More like, energetic non-parent exciting fun.
What the fuck.
Someone please explain this to me.
