I've done some gardening but only 2 or 3 times, before my bushes were always trimmed back nice and neatly, now I cut them back shorter so I don't have to do it as often.
The one thing I said I'll never do but I've stuck to is have them sleep with me, but Liam's a good sleeper at night.
I wasn't going to rock to sleep. Did it for the first few months as he wouldn't put himself to sleep.
The change table I was always going to use now hardly gets used as the floor is so much easier, plus its in front of the tv. another thing I wasn't going to do. I thought parents who used tv to babysit were lazy, now I know without it somedays I wouldn't get a shower, or we wouldn't get tea.
But what about the things we said we weren't going to do and have stuck to. Like co-sleeping, making dads get up during the night, eating with bibs, eating in high chair, not putting in the car to go to sleep, make most of my own food (this is more of a cost factor for me)
But these could still change as Liam's only 6 months old.
I agree with the supermarket tantrum and those who said give them something to keep them quiet. I work in a supermarket and we'd often want to give the child what it wanted to keep them quiet. Think 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 48 weeks a year and at least a couple of tantrums a day. You could understand why.
