What did you say you WEREN'T going to do that you ended up doing?

I promised myself I would NEVER co-sleep. ***Now that's all we do.

I promised myself I would NEVER pick up my baby simply because he was crying. ***Then I realized that being held and cuddled wasn't only a need for my baby, but for me as well.

I promised myself I would NEVER put my kid on one of those horrible leashes. ***And then I ended up with 2 kids under 3 years out in public with a lot of people around. You best believe I use it when necessary!

I did promise myself I would try and be the best mom possible and while I struggle with it from time to time, I do try my best and love my sons more than I've loved anything or anybody else. Those two little boys are my heart out in the world.

  • I said I would never put a backpack harness on my kid, because lazy moms do that.
    YEAH RIGHT! We have a monkey and man we LOVED that thing at the zoo when ds was younger, now that he's going to be 3 in January his monkey stopped making appearances because he listens better as do all kids the older they get. ☺

  • I said I wouldn't allow drinks or snacks in the car because it makes the car dirty, but I found out a little dirtiness beats the heck out of screaming toddlers.

  • said we wouldn't use pacifiers (finally introduced them when my baby was a few weeks old and going through a collicy spell).
    said I wouldn't give her ANY formula (I supplemented for a couple days when she wasn't at birthweight at 2 weeks. minor bump in the road, oh well).
    said we wouldn't bedshare, but it works sooo well for us. love it.
