Too much to list but I guess that's what every parent has to deal with.
Me (21) DH (25) DS (4) DD (2)
Sent from a magical mobile bubhub device in a galaxy far far away
I had an elective c-section
11 month old DD has had chocolates, occasionally has packet food, I work,
I have let DD play out the front of the house, UNSUPERVISED since she was 3years old yes it's an absolute miracle she hasn't been kidnapped by all the child abductors roaming the streets looking for kids to snatch, and that she hasn't been hit by all the cars that never come down our cul-de-sac...
I'm a single mum...
So if I talk to your husband I must want to have sex with him.
Even if I'm just saying hello
Let DD watch way too much TV.
Let DD have 2 minute noodles for lunch.
Let her jump in puddles when we go for walks.
Got DD an iPad at 18 months then an iPod at 2. She can use both like a pro
Let her call and talk to family on my iPhone unsupervised.
Paint DDs nails
Spray the tips of her hair with pink hair spray.
Let her use lip balm
Had an Epidural
Having a c-section with this baby
Formula feed for medical reason but people still judged.
DD is 3.5 and still has a dummy.
Lay with DD till she falls asleep.
Told DD where babies came from well before 2.
Taught her to say vagina, penis and testicles.
Umm I'm sure there is more

I give my daughter pedicures and manicures. Like, proper ones with cuticle work and everything. She's not yet 8, and because of school rules it's usually pedis rather than manis...
I swear in the home. Like... every single word you could imagine. I don't swear AT her, but she hears it all the time. She's not allowed to swear, and she even thinks that "hate" or "idiot," or "fool," are "adult words," too so my "these words are for adults only to use - you can use them when you're an adult" has worked.
I let DD watch shows and play games that others might not let their kids. She asked to play GTA (which is game full of violence, swearing, gang warfare, strippers/hookers, stealing, blah blah blah) and I said no... so I do draw the line somewhere... but I let her play a game called Fable III (I love this game) which is rated MA15+. About the only content I feel is at all "mature," (about from the fairly tame "killing" of things) is only stuff you can access if you do things a certain way... and she just wouldn't. If she does... meh. It's still fairly cartoony, and not graphic anyway. The whole game is a bit supernatural and silly... not serious and hardcore.
I am very open and honest with my daughter. If she has a question, and I know the answer, she will get given the answer... she knows a lot of things as a result. I might give it to her in a kid-friendly way, but I don't cutesy it up or fob her off with fibs.
ABC2 is on...a lot
I let DD1 play out the front on the deck...by herself
I buy lollies...and feed them to the girls
I drive an SUV
I did CC with DD2
I don't like going to the park
I have had 3 epidurals
DD1 has her own make-up and nail polish
My almost 5 year old still has a dummy as does my 2.5 year old
