Quite a few of my friends are pregnant at the moment with their first child (spring is in the air) and I can’t help but find the things they say amusing. They have it all worked out, they know how they are going to raise their children, how their child will behave and what they are definitely NOT going to do with them.
It makes me think back to when I was first pregnant and the things that I said I would NEVER do with my kids, so I’ve compiled a list for you…
I will never let my children watch TV
My son now has his own armchair and his own tv, He’s 3!
I will never let my children have sweets or chocolate
Sometimes bribery with sweet stuff is the only answer!
I will never let my children wear clothes with cartoon character logos on then
My son has two Fireman Sam tops and my daughter has a Peppa Pig one!
I will never let my children come into our bed in the morning
Every morning our bed is invaded by two little ones!
I will never let my children have a dummy
This one lasted all of 3 days!
I will never let my children have jarred food
We lived above a pub with no kitchen upstairs, chef’s don’t like mashing up two carrots!
I will never let my children have Mcdonalds
Now at least once a month!
I will never bribe my children
See number 2!
I will never lose my temper
Ha, how naive was I!
I will never let my children have lots of plastic, non educational toys
You try stopping doting Aunt’s, Nannies, Grannies, Uncles and Grandads from buying them toys that you don’t approve of.
So there you have it, my list of shame. Your turn now, what did you say that you’d never do that you have done?
