    DF and I have some ideas that I just know wont pan out though. We wanted our little one to not even know what McDonald's is till he's 5... Yeah, I can so not see that happening
    This might be possible. DD doesn't know and she's 4. We have been there though, she thinks all they serve is apple slices and English muffins with vegemite...LOL.

    No tv before 2years
    No junk food
    No shouting
    No disposables

    Although with the next baby I plan to insist on the last point as long as possible since it was out of our control last time.
    The rest...lol :P

    Well, we're gonna try.
    I've thought the tantrums one too, but have been too scared to say it out loud, I just know karma would come back on that one

    Co-sleep (DS is currently snoring next to me in 'our' bed) and wear licensed clothing - I let him wear a pair of Thomas slippers he got for his birthday...

    I'm pleased to say that I did/do stick with some of my other 'I'll nevers'!

    Never give my kids Maccas. That went out the window thanks to other people. Though thankfully DS thinks all they serve is chicken on wraps and I've been lenient on the chips because he really only has it occasionally.

    Not give junk food. I allow chips, chocolate and ice cream. Still no lollies thank goodness!

    Not lose it and get angry/shout at him because I am frustrated Not proud of that.

    i said I Would never use disposable nappies. However DD is a very very heavy wetter and well we ended up using the disposables over the cloth.
