Remember when you were the expert on parenting? Before you actually had children and you thought it was the same as babysitting; when you were an expert? There was a laundry list of things that I would never do. Iâ€™ve done most of them.
Here are a few things I swore I would never do
Sniff a babies butt in public. Oh yes, it happened so often that I didnâ€™t understand why â€œnormalâ€ people looked at me like I was crazy when I did it in public places; at the store, at the airport and even during mass.
Walk a round with baby vomit, spit up, pee or poop on me. Itâ€™s only baby body fluid; everyone knows that stuff is sterile. Why change? They are just going to do it again in 10 minutes. What do I look like, the laundry fairy?
Leave the houseÂ 1) in my pajamas 2) with my hair not brushed 3) with my teeth not brushed 4) all of the above.
Eat food that my child chewed up and then shoved in my mouth. Donâ€™t judge. Some days it was all I got to eat.
Never let my kid watch television as a babysitter. Mommy needs to pee by herself sometimes. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Never speak in absolutes. Lesson learned.
Never cuss in front of my child. This would be a lot easier if I werenâ€™t constantly exhausted, tripping over toys and had a moment of privacy…ever.
Never lie to my child. The first time your little one walks in on you and your husband having â€œadult timeâ€ you will see just how big a liar you can be. Lies will fly out of your mouth with lightening speed.
What did you swear that you’d never do as a parent?
