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!)

You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
Still mummy to Agnes Ronald and Beryl.

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.
