Became a SAHM. I always assumed I'd be a working mum but totally changed my tune when DS1 started daycare.

I always thought I would love being a SAHM but I dont like it at all. Working 2-3 days a week I find I can be a better mum (now just need to get that job)
Apart from that I never really had other ideas but I am more easy going with my second than my first

Oh sooooooo many things!!!
I wasn't going to let them use phones or iPads
I was always going to make sure their faces were pristine - my kids were *never* going to have snotty noses
I was going to discipline my tantrum throwing toddler in the shops - because of course we all know parents cause toddlers to have tantrums! Haha.
I was going to have my child sleep in a cot in their own room from day dot, I was never going to have my kids sleep in my room!
I wasn't going to let my kids dictate my schedule, DH and I were *meant* to do that.

I have very little patience so sending them off to school would be easier, stress free, but this is something we all want (Dp is a bit reluctant). We hsve only been homeschooling for a few months so far and there have been challenging days but for the most part we enjoy what we're doing.
My girls do go to school part time but hoping to h/school full time soon.

Yep. Opening food in the shops is one I thought I would never do too. Licking a tissue and wiping my DD's face is another 😂 I remember how gross it was as a kid but I still do it. I went off dairy, soy and egg completely while feeding my DD's because they were both allergic. Never thought I would have been able to do that before.

I used to laugh at people who took their kids to sleep school.
How can you not know how to put your child to bed???!!!!
3 kids later, 2 of mine have gone.
Moral of the story, don't judge!

Technology / too much tv
Shout at them. I was never going to be a shouter. I'm working on it but yeah they press my buttons some days and I shout.
Eat in front of tv
Eat in their bedrooms (not allowed but some mornings if it gets them out of the house quicker)

Some things we've stuck to other gone downhill!
Technology - if DS is losing his mind somewhere, raa raa the noisy lion immediately on a phone!
Fried food - my child would never know what a chip looked like! Too late...
He would always be clean and in matching outfits, purchased exclusively from country road and seed because we all know children understand love by understanding their parents love shopping! Reality he's always dirty, and a bit stinky and often wears mis matched clothes!

Extended breastfeeding. I always knew I would nurse till 1 year, but beyond that I never would have imagined.
