What a great topic!
Well, what can I say - I have been having a good laugh!!
I too am guilty of alot of the things listed here.
One thing that I don't think is listed here - I swore that Rascal (our Golden Retreiver) would never be allowed to lick Bubs fce - what do you know, he does it and she thinks it's a GREAT joke, laughing everytime!
I swore too that we were never going to use a dummy - well sometimes it was the only thing that would settle her - even if it had just fallen on the floor. Now Cayley has decided to spit it out everytime it goes in her mouth - went shoppong and bought lots of different types to find one she liked (never knew there were so many different sahpes available) Finally found one she would keep in her mouth (for a week!) Have now given up.
I've gone the opposite way with the nappies - always swore to only use disposables - couldn't be bothered with all that washing! But the drop in income soon was exchanged for the extra washing!
Breast feeding - No worries, do it as long as I could - didn't plan on having a bub that refused to latch, and when she did, insisted on biting, so after sick of expressing, formula was the most marvelous thing out!
Well, time to go feed the little darling.
Keep the stories coming.
