    10 Things I Said I Would Never Let My Kids Do Before I Became A Mom

    You know you have those friends that have kids that you’re just like, “What the heck!?” Why are they letting them do that or eat that? And then you tell yourself the famous last words because you aren’t a parent..yet, “When I have kids, I WILL NEVER LET MY KIDS DO THAT!”  Well I am totally guilty of saying and doing those things. This is my list of things that I said I would never let my kids do before I became a mom. 

     

    “I will NEVER let my kids go out in public dressed like a mess.”
    Now I still kind of follow this one and I would say about 80% of the time they look way more presentable then myself. But we have had some times that hair isn’t brushed, food is on the shirt, and they do not have matching socks. 

    “I will NEVER let my kid walk around with a runny nose.”
    Again, I still try to keep up with this one because runny noses are pretty gross but sometimes you just have to give that nose a break.

    “I will NEVER let my kids eat food off of the floor.”
    I always thought it was so disgusting when I would see some parents let their kids eat food that fell on the floor. I still do especially in public places but since my second one was born and I’ve been pregnant with my third I have witnessed my sons find crackers and some other things that have been on the floor and eat it and I, admittedly, have not tried to stop them. I just let it happen.  I am that mom now. 

    “I will NEVER let my kids eat sugary desserts.”
    Again, I still try not to. haha it always drives my friends nuts that I don’t let the kids eat cake and ice cream at birthday parties.

    “I will NEVER let my kids watch TV all day”
    I am so guilty of letting the TV be on ALL.DAY.LONG. My third pregnancy really took a toll on me and the tv was on at least 50% of the day. Do your thang mama! Whatever gets you through the day.

    “I will NEVER cuss in front of my kids.”
    F%&* that S#@!  haha Kidding! I don’t really cuss in front of them. On occasion it slips but I really try to be more conscious of what we’re saying in front of the kids because I’ve got a bunch of parrots!

    “I will NEVER let them eat fast food.”
    Pregnancy makes you do crazy things.  I was obsessed with Jack in The Box tacos. I know, I know, they’re so delicious! Kellan has experienced my addiction to these during pregnancy 2 times now so he’s all for the late night taco run.

    “I will NEVER let my kids sleep with me.”
    We have a queen bed and Ethan and I barely sleep comfortably on there just the two of us so adding a kid or two or three is just tough. The baby sleeps in his little cosleeper attached to my bed and on occasion the boys come into bed with us.

    “I will NEVER give my kids cereal for breakfast..and lunch..and dinner.”
    I don’t really buy cereal but it’s more oatmeal. haha I am guilty of giving the kids oatmeal for breakfast and lunch and if Ethans not home we have it for dinner too some times!

    “I will NEVER let them wear PJs all day.”
    Now this was just a dumb one that I thought wasn’t ok. I love being in PJs so naturally my kids love it too! In fact, I’m typing this up at 2 in the afternoon and we are all still in our pajamas. No shame here!

     

    I’ve learned that the term, never say never, really stands true when you become a parent!
    What are some things you said you’d never let your kids do before you had them?

    What’s In My Fawn Design Diaper Bag?

    Now that I’ve been going out with all three of the kids I’ve got a good idea of what I really need to carry around with me. When I only had Kellan I literally carried anything and everything! I always wanted to be prepared for anything that might happen. Now I just keep things that I need.  One thing that I changed up this time around was getting a backpack. Read more

    Never Say These 5 Things To A New Mom

    Have you lost all the baby weight yet? 

    10 times out 10 after you have a baby you still look like you’re pregnant. Just because the baby came out doesn’t mean all of the weight did too.  It took nine months to grow the baby and they say it takes nine months to take it off.  And for the record, nursing a baby turns you into a ravenous beast. I can pretty much eat double my weight in food. So that’s not really helping me drop the weight either. Read more

    What’s In My Hospital Bag?

    I’m finally 37 weeks and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The pregnancy finish line is creeping up on me. I feel like this was the fastest pregnancy I’ve ever had and I’m not sure I’m 100% ready for it to end. I say this every time I’m about to have a baby but the miracle of pregnancy and knowing that you are growing an actual human being that could potentially change the world one day just blows my mind. It’s so something I’m so proud and scared of at the same time.

    Breastfeeding Essentials Every Mom Needs To Know

    I will state this now, I am not a breastfeeding expert by any means. I really struggled the first month with breastfeeding Kellan but it was something I was determined to do and we went six months before he self weened. We learned that he was cutting a tooth them and was not showing interest in nursing because of that. Knox, I nursed for 8 months and boy was I glad when it was over. He cut his teeth and became a biter, which I was not happy about!  In my combined 14 months of nursing here are a few things that I learned and items I already have ready to go for our newest baby boy. I have no goal set in mind. We will just be taking it a day at a time in hopes that everything works out for us.  Read more
