When you don’t have or have never cared for children, it’s so easy to say that your future children will never do a variety of things. Like that loud ass screaming kid at the grocery store. Yea, that’ll never be your kid. I see it all the time on social media from my child-less friends. Before having kids, I used to say the same things. Becoming a parent was like a nice kick in the teeth.
These are just a few of the things I said my kids would never do.
My kids won’t know what McDonalds is..
With as much as we’ve traveled around the country, the Happy Meal has wedged it’s way into our lives. Sure, I could plan ahead and pack lunches, but sometimes that takes too much work. And lately, dinner seems to take too much work to prepare, so McDonalds it it!
My kids will never misbehave in public..
It’s more like my kids will never behave in public. I’ve tried everything to include bribery. I’ve pretty much accepted the fact that trips to the store will be painful for quite some time.
My kids won’t watch TV until they’re older..
I’m all about the free babysitting service known as Netflix. TV is one of the things that I try hard to limit, but when I need to occupy the girls while I do the dishes or take a shower, the TV is my savior.
My kids will never make a mess of the house..
It’s a good thing I enjoy vacuuming. I’ve learned that silence is dangerous.
My kids will never sleep in my bed.
I failed at this one from the very beginning. Less than a week into parenthood, I was exhausted from getting up to feed Veronica, which led to her being given a spot between John and I. Nursing is easy when you don’t have to wake up for it.
My kids won’t curse or say inappropriate things..
Adri dropped an F-bomb like a champ yesterday. I take full responsibility for that one. It’s my go-to word..
So, fellow mommies, what are some things you said your kids would never do? Child-less ladies, I’d love to hear what you think too!
