"I won't be one of those parents who stresses themselves out unnecessarily over their child's development because all kids develop at their own pace as long as he is happy and healthy"
Here I am stressing that he isn't walking yet but not wanting to wish time away and for him to grow up too quickly!

Maybe it's because I have so many siblings (and am the eldest), but I don't really have expectations of my future kids...
I DO however, have 'wants', etc.
E.g. I don't want to co-sleep. I want to mix feed. I want a quiet child.
Lol... I'm going to get a kid who is fussy and never sleeps and wants to be in my bed until they move out, huh?

I'll admit that before I became a parent, I occasionally put on my judgey pants at work. I was a childcare worker, you see, and I had experience and knew lots and lots about children.
Until I actually had to live with them.
Why doesn't she wipe the sleep from her kid's eyes? Surely it's not that hard to take a couple of seconds out of your morning ... HA! DS1 screams blue murder if I bring a tissue or damp washcloth anywhere near his face. Half the time I don't even bother completely wiping his face clean because it's not worth the trouble. Besides, it'll come off in the bath. Someday.
That woman doesn't work! Why is her kid in daycare? HA! I send DS1 to his grandmother's house twice a week just so I can regain my sanity AND clean the apartment. Because it sure as heck isn't going to get clean with him here. Sure, it'll only be clean for the duration of his absence, but at least I can enjoy the fresh piney scent for a little bit.
Using lollies and toys as bribery? That's not right and the child will LEARN NOTHING! HA. "Do a wee on the toilet and mummy'll give you a snake." "OK!"
It's the little things that make so much more sense now that I have to deal with them.
