    I've fed chocolate to a 3 year old at 7 am to get them to let me get dressed.

    I've used tv as a babysitter soooooo many times.

    Hot chips - meh!

    And I've caught vomit in my bare hands, rather than have it go on the couch

    I've let my kids wear the same clothes every day (without washing them) as it was easier than the fight not to.

    My 15 month old still loves his milk from a bottle (even though he will drink from a sippy cup)

    DD1 still had a dummy at 3 and a half.

    DD1 wore a fairy dress to every single day of 3 year old kindy (much to my frustration and deep embarrassment as I knew so many other kids wanted to but their parents were able to talk the out of it yet I couldn't)

    Oh my shame list could go on and on. One thing 3 kids have taught me is (a) never judge and (b) never say never.

    I never thought I'd give my kids a dummy - let alone give them one at 2.5yo at night!!! Both kids had dummies in hospital within hours of being born.

    Go to the toilet whilst cuddling my son - it sounds terrible. But he was really really sick and would just cry hysterically if I put him down to the point of losing his breath. If I had him in my arms he was calm. Sooooo I was busting to pee and the rest is history.

    Hmm...

    Was never going to use a dummy. DD has half a dozen...

    Wouldn't share my bed. Recently discovered I can get a sleep-in by doing so

    No TV. DD loves Giggle & Hoot.

    Oh well

    Been there
    Bronchiolitis at 7 weeks and croup 3 times from 12 - 15 months, if I'd left him to cry it would've been BAD so I peed with him on me.
