    Hehe I don't have any kids just yet, but these are making me giggle anyway Only because I often say now that pretty much everything confident, opinionated me said in my 20s that I absolutely would not do in my life...I have ended up doing

    One of the big ones.... I absolutely would NEVER date someone younger than me. That's just ridiculous. Fast forward several years and ahem....

    That they would never eat in the car.

    That I would dutifully keep a journal of all my pregnancies and life in general because honestly, how hard is it to find a few minutes each day? (How naive I was!)

    That I would never leave my baby to cry (at 10 months old, he'd wake every 1.5 hours so out of desperation I did cc and never looked back!)

    That I would make all of the purées and stuff myself and never give them packet food (ha!)

    Less than 5 weeks into mummyhood and I've totally changed my "i will never..." attitude!

    Particularly co-sleeping. I admit I was very judgemental beforehand, said I would have my baby in their own room from day one of getting home from hospital. Fast forward to today - bub spends most of the night in her bassinet beside our bed and has snuggled in with us in the early hours of the morning nearly every night. I didn't realise just how much comfort babies get from bed sharing, and I actually enjoy it too!

    That once children could walk they would never be breastfed cos that was gross.
    They were never going to have a dummy either.

    When I was young, naive & sheltered I used to wonder why working mums had kids if they were just going to pay someone else to raise them. Then thankfully I met some and got the verbal smack upside the head that I deserved.

    Not so much an opinion but until DS was born, I didn't realize how important it was to other people whether I breastfed or formula fed.

    I thought leashes were cruel and unusual, until I realised they are actually potentially life and sanity savers!

    I thought 3 children was far too many, I mean you only have 2 hands right? Hmmm, my 3rd son had other ideas...

    I always though that once a child was walking, there was NO excuse to use a pram/stroller. Just Mums being lazy, I thought, and encouraging their kids to be lazy.

    We still use it almost every time we go out with Miss-5-in-June. Now she has Down syndrome and because of that, gets tired more quickly and also due to cognitive delays/memory issues/attention issues, is pretty uncontrollable when she's walking.

    BUT, I also used up until about 2ish with #1 child and about 4ish with #2 child.
