Things I Thought I'd Never Do
Taking pictures of the kiddos playing with Play-Doh yesterday reminded me of things I swore I'd never do. I said I would never allow Play-Doh in the house. I know it is very good for fine motor skills and creativity, but it is just so messy and so hard to get out of carpet. But there I was letting them play away and even mix all the colors together.
I said I would never let my children sleep with us in our bed. Now that happens at least twice a week :)
I thought I would be one of those moms that insists the kiddos eat their dinner. I now know they'll eat when they are hungry.
I said I would never ever be one of those moms that puts a harness on your child or one of those bracelets that connects you to them. I have.
I said I would never let my kids drink soda. Don't ask AP what her favorite thing to drink is!
I never thought I'd let my kids leave the house mismatched and uncoordinated. I have now learned the art of picking my battles.
I swore I would never drive a minivan. But now it is so comfy.
I swore I would never resort to bribery, but I have.
I never thought I would have to ban SpongeBob, but I did.
I never thought my "labor pains" would involve papercuts and layovers in Istanbul.
I never knew pieces of my heart would live inside these two amazing children.
