    I have one 7 month old.. So undoubtedly to list will increase as she gets older. Things I can think of at the moment:

    -Could have given birth at home, but didn't want to. Got to hospital only 5 minutes befo DD was born
    -think astrology, osteopathy, homeopathy, psychics etc. etc. a rubbish, and will not hide that belief from my daughter
    - dress my girl in lots of "boys" clothes, so that most people think she's a boy when we go out
    -combination fed my daughter from 3-6 months purely to give myself a break, and make it easier for me to go outwithouther
    -do NO overnight settling... It's all my partner (including one feed)
    -leave my daughter to play by herself on the floor. A lot.
    - have at times used a dummy, bed-shared, tried CC, used sleep positioners, put my bub to sleep on her side/tummy before she could fully roll
    - fed my bub foods way before they would generally be recommended (eg. Cucumber sticks with skin at 6 months).

    Plenty more, I'm sure

    I have a two year old and...

    - I work full time
    - DS eats chicken nuggets more than once a week
    - DS has the same first name as DH (which must mean my DH has a huge ego )
    - DS still sleeps with a dummy
    - We only just stopped giving DS milk in a bottle
    - We are kinda overprotective
    - TV is on for DS more than an hour a day
    - We let DS play with the iPad at home, and...at restaurants/cafes
    - Have always used disposable nappies
    - We are yet to use daycare for DS's socialisation
    - We don't kiss DS on the lips
    - I strictly avoided listeria risk foods during pregnancy
    - We use the pram A LOT because DS is a runner
    - We don't keep track of DS's weight and height

    I deprive my children by not "doing" Santa, the Easter bunny or any gods.

    Sooo many of these posts have me thinking "huh?? What's to judge about that??" lol I had no idea I did so many judge worthy things.., although according to this thread, you are judged for bfing, not bfing, vaccinating, not vaccinating, using daycare, not using daycare, wanting to work, not wanting to work... I find it comforting to know that DD was right when she told me "mum, you are ALWAYS the one who is wrong"

    More to add...

    I don't really even think about vaccinating and the pros and cons and the research and whatnot. It's something I feel no desire to research.

    I had my daughter young, after 4 months into a relationship and am no longer with her father. He doesn't even see her (his own choice).

    I suck at housework... it's the last thing I want to do. I'd rather wax stinky butt-cracks than do the dishes.

    I don't let my child wear whatever she wants if we're leaving the house. I'm all about being well-presented in public, and I have standards I expect my child to adhere to when we leave our home.

    I also should add:

    I have a toilet mat.
    I dont clean every week.

    And Im ashamed to admit that I dont really miss ds all that much if he is being watched by family. I havent left him much but when I do I don't think about how much I miss him and a lot of the time I think wow how great is this! If one of my family members wanted to take him overnight I would jump at the chance and not even think twice.

    I adore him and love how excited he is when I get back but yeah I don't miss him

    Oh and DS is almost 20 months old and I still mostly spoon feed him because I hate the mess. He knows how to spoon feed but some days I honestly couldnt be ****ed cleaning up the disaster zone after he's fed himself spaghetti

    Oh that reminds me - I still dress and undress DD like she is a baby. She never chooses what she wears. I also get all of her food, including snacks and drinks, for her. She is way too slow/messy at these things and I am always in too much of a rush and am a major control freak

    Actually yes same as Sassy, DS is always well dressed when we leave the house and at 2.5 years old he has over 20 pairs of shoes

    I hate working and would gladly join the p and C and be one of those overly involved school mums

    I put chia seeds in everything

    I exclusively did Baby Led Weaning

    What i paid for my designer handbags would be a deposit for a unit

    Lol I dress DD everyday like she is off to visit the queen when often it's just the Woolies run

    I too would never work again if I didn't have to

    Get confused when people say they think being pregnant is beautiful, I always considered it an ordeal, a horrible means to an end
