Never Say Never

Before becoming a mom, there were plenty of things that I said, or thought, I would never do. As every other mom knows, usually those "I would never" things go out the window once  you have to actually be a mom. 

I have read a few blogs recently of moms who have discussed this and made their own "I would never" list. I thought I would share mine!

I said I would never...
-let my kids watch more than 1 or 2 TV shows per day
-let them have a dirty face or dirty clothes in public
-let them choose and wear mis-matched clothes
-give/buy them a lollipop, or smarties, or a toy to keep them quiet
-Go back on my word once I told them "no"
-lose my temper and yell at them (ha!)
-buy the organic milk box at Starbucks instead of just ordering a "kids milk"
-bribe bargain with them to eat their food
-let them have nuggets and fries twice in one day

and the list goes on and on...

Sometimes being a mommy is really hard work.

But other times, when they are both being sweet and cuddly and lovey, you can't help but smile and be SO thankful that God chose you to be their mommy!
