I used to be the best parent. I was an expert in everything kid related, and then I become a mom. And everything I thought I knew flew out of a window. Nobody warns about those things, or maybe they do, but I didn’t listen. I was so confident that it would never happen to me because I’ve got it all figure out. It still makes me laugh just thinking about how naive I was.
To this day, I did so many things I said I would never do, that I lost count, and some of them I still do, and I am not ashamed. So I made a list of some of the things I said I would never in a million years do, and I do. So let’s get right to it.
1.My kids will never eat junk food. They will only eat freshly made, organic meals that I will make from scratch for them every single day. Let’s take a moment and laugh about this. I know I shouldn’t give them process food, but sometimes you need to give in and take your kids through drive-through and order that Happy Meal they wanted so badly. And while you are there, you also deserve some coffee, and maybe a cookie,and fries, you deserve it.
2.Use bribe as a reword. Use bribe as a reword. Let’s make one thing clear, we all been there, done that, and we will probably do it again. Is it wrong to do it? Yes, it is. Sometimes you have to make sure that your child will be on their best behavior, and if it means promising them a trip to the toy store, then that’s what you have to do.
3.Let my kids eat in the car. And then I realized that this was the perfect way to keep my kids happy and quiet during long car rides. And I will not apologize to anyone for my beck seat being a complete mess.
4.Use screen time as a babysitter. I firmly believe that allowing your kids some screen time is completely fine. And there will be times when kids are driving you insane, and you need some quiet time to recharge, so allowing them to watch more shows on tv is necessary. Therefore I will never, ever apologize for that.
5.Go crazy when my child says, mama 5 billion times a day. I couldn’t wait until they learned to say, mama, and now I think they use that word way too often. I mean, how many times they can call me during the day. You better believe me that I will lose my cool after a while. Admit, you would too after you hear the word mama a few million times in one day.
These are some of the things that I swear I would never, in a million years do, but I did. And now, I ask you to please share with me in the comments, what the things you said you would never do, but you still did do. Don’t leave me here alone feeling like the worst mom i the world. Let’s keep the conversation going in the comments.
Until next post, my darlings, love you, stay safe, and I will talk to you soon.
