I said I wouldn't be 'one of those mums' who lets their kid go out in public wearing a costume instead of clothes. I said I'd put my foot down and they would wear normal clothing or nothing.
DD wore a Batman mask, Wolverine suit and Captain America shield to Westfield yesterday.
With slippers. And jeans.
Not only ONE but THREE costumes in public at the same time!
Old me would have had a fit over it.

Before DS was born I said I would never use a dummy, put him in disposable Nappies, co sleep, let him watch TV, feed him food that I didn't prepare myself oh and bottle feed.
I did all of the above and I'm sure there's plenty more I have forgotten about.

A very long time ago when I was an ignorant, childless teenager, I saw a family friend making her DD a special meal for dinner because she didn't like what we were eating.
I then said that my children would eat whatever I gave them, otherwise they would eat nothing, the end.

That I would breastfeed for 12 months only.
I would feed only healthy foods.
I would have children close together and be a SAHM until they were in school.
I would be cool, calm, collected and have well disciplined children and I'd be well rested.
Reality, I breastfed for 2.5 years, he has the occasional treat and I very quickly learned that I won't be the only one feeding him forever and I can't always control it, I only have one child who is 6 yo and I was bored of SAHMothering by the time he was 2.

I can't think of anything, because I don't think I went into parenthood with certain expectations.
DF though, I don't think he ever expected to co-sleep, but we did with DD2 and he agrees that it was the best thing for us. Also, he was very pro FF before DD1 arrived, but by the time she was born he was very supportive in my BFing attempt, with DD2 he was even more so, and when we have a third he will be even more so. Also, he was very pro elective CS, and I guess seeing how easy my births were has converted him. Not overly 'parenting' things I guess, but somewhat relevant.

My son was NEVER going to have formula.. he had two comp feeds in NICU waiting for my milk to come in. I was going to breastfeed for two years.. when DS was happy with cows milk from 17 months I couldn't have been more happy if I'd won the lottery. There was going to be no Wiggles in the house.. but we just got two new CDs and are hanging out for tickets to go on sale! I was also not going to give my child hot chips until he was at least two.. thanks to the grandparents he not only knows what they are but demands them if he sees them on someones plate
