There were a lot of things I said I would never do as a parent before baby & the list just got lengthier once I found out I was pregnant. First time expecting moms are probably the most naïve because we don’t know any better. All that we know is that whether we are 6 weeks in or 9 months; we have in fact experienced motherhood. What we have not experienced though is a screaming toddler in the middle of a busy grocery line that we are stuck directly in the middle of. I think we can all agree that once upon a time, we didn’t know any better.
Looking back at myself I have to laugh. I had the best of intentions but zero experience. I was INSTANTLY attached to the growing fetus inside of me & began planning the type of mother I would be almost right away. I had plans & rules & even told the grandmas that TV wouldn’t be allowed. I made car playlists made up of the cheesiest, most obnoxious family road trip songs out there. I planned to be the most organic, diy, Betty Crocker mom anyone has ever seen & turned into a Betty Crock of shit.
Here is just a small list of the things that I said I would & would never do that I give ZERO ***** about now.
