I went back to work full time and have no desire to go back to being a full time SAHM, and I don't feel guilty about DD being in full time daycare. She has settled in now and I think she has more fun there than at home. I do miss the kids and I wish I could pick DS up from school every day, but I love working and the independence of earning money and not being on the single parent pension.

This is a great thread
-I didn't do extended BF& happy to FF
- I use disposable nappies
- Had c/s with my last 3 daughters and had a epidural with my first
- Had my daughters ears pierced at 6 months
- Drive a new SUV that isn't financed
- Get my daughters a diet soft drink with their Maccas meals at times as a treat instead of juice as my eldest is a Type 1 diabetic and juice can be a sugar overload
- christened my daughters to send them to a private school and to please our grandparents.
Gee the list could go on lol

Many upon many of things but the being a young mum and a mum to 2 at 21 is what I'm most judged for. Wouldn't change it for anything though

Oh, another one....I did my own version of controlled comforting with DD at 12 months, and don't feel the slightest bit guilty (though I'm sure I'd get judged here). You can judge all you like, but she's a happy and content little girl, and I'm getting a full nights sleep every night so I can function at work.

People would judge me on pretty much my entire existence!
My kids eat lots of treats and often in front of the tv
We watch lots of tv and the kids play on ipads and iphones
I'm not madly in love with my husband but would never consider leaving him because I put the kids relationship with both of us first
I hate housework and my house is often untidy and even sometimes a little dirty
I'm happy to dress my girl in boys clothes but would never dress my boy in girls clothes
My kids go to daycare from 7 months so I can work, even though I don't want to. I can't "give up" the things I would need to give up in order to not work
We eat takeout very regularly
I am a yoyo dieter and fitness freak
I'm pro-breastfeeding but happy to give dummies and supplement with formula
I co-sleep with my newborns so we can all sleep but would never let a toddler sleep in my bed
I leave the house in trackpants, dirty sneakers, no makeup and hair not even brushed.
I have no interest in politics
I have zero world knowledge, I don't watch the news, I know nothing about anything important except my kids
I could keep going but you get the gist. I'm just in general a very lazy, casual, unintelligent person

I don't change nappies as often as I should (for wees!). They're made to hold a lot of liquid and they're expensive!

Just thought of more
1)I sleep in on weekends and let DH handle things
2)I let my oldest 2 sleep on a mattress in my room when they are scared
3)I got my children flu shots
4)I get DD to help me sometimes (according to DD this is horrible)
5)I have tattoos and at times bold hair colours.
6)If I feel lazy I will let my children have hot dogs or take out or frozen pizza for dinner.

-hired an independent midwife for my maternity care and will likely give birth in an independent birth centre, possibly with my daughter present
(irresponsible, hippy freak who cares more about her 'birth experience' than the safety of my baby, obviously)
-my child knows how and where babies come from including the correct names for both genatalia
(Child obviously traumatized in the name of political correctness)
-will breastfeed for however long my child desires it, wherever I please
( obviously lacking in social decency & or modesty, love having my boobs out and child will be breastfeed till 25)
-use gentle parenting & discipline and have decided that CIO and smacking is not what we want for our family
( breeding future brat, and potentially ruining relationship, sex, life)
-expect husband to be equal partner 100% including housework and night waking s, despite the fact that he works outside of the home
(Lazy bad wife, partner obviously under the thumb and 10 seconds away from affair)
Also, I watch too much bad tv, read too much, hate mothers group and other cliquey, competitive environments, I'm untidy, stubborn, spent too much money on baby products we probably won't need and have completely given up on maintenance of body hair since the second trimester.
I could really go on and on, C'est la vie!
