What are some of the things you thought you'd never say/do then you became a mom....

I never thought I'd have to tell somebody" get you hand out of the cat poop!" or "Stop drinking the syrup" "Don't eat toilet paper" "Take the underwear off your head!" Nor did I ever think I'd reach out to catch vomit with my hand or wipe snot off somebody's face with my robe sleeve! (of course I took it off to wash it right after) So what are some of your I can't believe I just said/did that mommy moments?

  • I always thought I'd be the cool mom, I'm really protective, and can be quite a stickler.

  • My son comes up with some really crazy teen boy fun ideas and is not afraid to try to execute them around me so I have 2 general rules I never thought a parent would have to make:
    1 Don't do stupid things with out a helmet! Stupid things being those that could get you or others hurt or arrested!
    2 If you get arrested your butt will sit in jail until I can deal with you without laughing!

    I have also said "Don't throw that Combo into the guys truck" while driving down the highway..."Dont ever again mooo at girls" this after I told him to stop barking out the window and it was the next animal noise that came to his head...."You may not skydive naked" he and a buddy were trying to make fun summer plans!
    Of course there was tons of gross stuff when he was a baby but this is the fun stuff!

  • I do/say things everyday I never thought I would. My number one is probably being able to leave the dinner table long enough to change a dirty diaper then sit right back down and finish my meal. I can't watch Fear Factor and those ER shows make me nauseas, but when it comes to my son i'm on it. LOL

  • My mom would always bust out in song for everything! I remember wanting things in the grocery store and EVERY TIME she would sing the "you can't always get what you want" song. although I have not yet had to choose that particular tune (my DS is too young) I find myself finding songs for everything! How My DH just laughs and thinks Im nuts.
