Never Have I Ever...

This post brought to you by eating crow and all those things I said I would never do as a parent, you know, before I was one.

Twenty Six Year Old Me:
My child will never eat processed food. Whole foods all the way here. I can't believe the crap that some people put into their children's body.

Twenty Nine Year Old Me:
Kraft mac-n-cheese, bean beans (green beans, and ps they're always canned) and bananas it is! Sometimes it's been a really long day and I need something quick and hot for Evie's dinner. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. Evie also has an occasional taste of processed white sugar. And oddly enough, I'm ok with it.



Twenty Six Year Old Me:
I will never have baby gates in my house. Why can't you people train your children to stay away from the stove or out of the dog's water bowl?

Twenty Nine Year Old Me:
There are not enough baby gates to contain the whirling dervish that is my toddler girl. Bring on the baby gates. I've got a fever, and the only cure? You guessed it: baby gates.




Twenty Six Year Old Me:
I will not let my house become a dumping ground for baby crap. I will never let my floor become littered with baby toys, jumpers and swings. Why can't people pick up after their kids? It's not a hard concept. Get up off your butt and clean up!

Twenty Nine Year Old Me:
OMG. This house is a mess. There are blocks and magnetic letters scattered all over the place. Evie and the dogs are playing tug of war with my throw blanket again. I'm so tired I can barely nibble on this cookie and lift my wine glass. Eh, the mess can wait til tomorrow.




Twenty Six Year Old Me:
I don't understand why people let their children run around in just their diapers and no pants. This is not acceptable, even inside the house. My child will always wear pants, even at home. Period.

Twenty Nine Year Old Me:
For the love of God, Evie! Could you poop any more today? I'm not wrestling you in and out of these pants again. Diaper, top and sockies it is. Run along kid and go play in the dog's water.




Twenty Six Year Old Me:
I will never let go of who I am when I have children. My house will not become a temple to them.

Twenty Nine Year Old Me:
Time for a bubble bath, wine and TV. Oh, look there is Evie's whale. He is so cute. I sure do miss her when she is asleep.



It's amazing how having kids will change your point of view. What are some of things you said you'd never do that you've done? C'mon. I know you've got at least one or two. We all do!
