    That I would never nap while my children were awake (not talking babies/toddlers btw). My mother never napped, so it was in my head that you just didn't do it.
    I'm a shift worker...you bet I nap! I have decided my mother was a martyr.

    What does this tell us about the expectations / pressures put on new mum's. We have this false sense of what parenthood is all about and what we 'should' be doing. Is it advertising media, celebrity media, social media? I think all of the above.

    Huggies and Johnson and Johnson ads show all of the unicorns and rainbows, celebrities all have nannies and house keepers and chefs etc and well social media is full of people trying to 'best' everyone else with their no sugar, no TV, no electronic toys, never eats take away BS.

    Sorry, I digress!....

    Have my under-2 watch so much tv. Or any tv. They don't need it so just don't turn it on, right?

    That changed when he started sleeping through, which just meant that he got all his sleeping done faster so was ready to get up 2 hours earlier. Far too early for me to deal with, so I just put ABCKids on while I snooze on the couch.

    Moral of the story: sleeping through is totally overrated

    I said I would never lie to my kids after hearing my BFF tell white lies to hers to avoid meltdowns etc.

    Cue my DS being told you can only go to McDonalds of you are having a party (as that was the first time he went there!) . I got that one to last till he was 5 1/2 and the kids at school called my bluff.

    But yes, lots of little white lies like if I don't want to share my food with him I tell him it has chilli in it regardless of what it is

    Bel: No you can't have my cupcake!
    DS: Why not?.....
    Bel: There's chilli in it!

    OMG I'm so using this on my stepsons. The chocolate/ice cream/lollies will now all be chilli flavoured. Unless of course I want to bribe them with it 😂

    I told my 3 year old that my packet of Tim tams was fruit the other day.
