So what things have you had to eat your words about so far?

Did you say you'd never use a pacifier and are now using one?

Did you say you'd never co sleep but now baby is in your bed?

Are there any things you swore you'd never do and now you find yourself doing?

Did you say you'd never co sleep but now baby is in your bed? I did say this.. with Kayla, I REFUSED. I was petrified. With Emily, I said I'd never and then she was in bed with us on occasion but still mostly in her co-sleeper. Abby has slept with us once but since the bed doesn't swing, she won't sleep there. lol

Are there any things you swore you'd never do and now you find yourself doing?
Not really.. I learned after Kayla that you just have to go with the flow and never says never.

Before I had Ben I had said I wouldn't co sleep and then slept with him his first night home from the hospital. Jillian has been in our bed since day 1 as well.

I also said I'd wait until Ben was about 3 before we'd TTC and we changes our minds about that obviously!

I learned my lesson with Cohen. The only thing I've probably said that I wouldn't do and stuck to is the no thumb sucking rule. I'd much rather have him suck on a paci than his thumb so he uses a paci and that's always been ok with me.

With Cohen i said no co-sleeping and we did, only use dreft and we used regular detergent within a week. I don't remember what else.

I said he wouldn't use a pacifier or suck his thumb - he does both

I said I would never co-sleep - but half the time dd ends up crawling into bed with us and we let her because we want to get some sleep.

I said they would always wear cute outfits and never get dirty. Yeah right, dd is a mess within an hour of getting up. I save her cute outfits for when we're going somewhere. lol

I said I didn't want kids closer than three years apart. Olivia and Josiah are 22 months apart.

This time I left myself open to anything so there isn't really anything that we have or haven't done that we hadn't planned on.

So what things have you had to eat your words about so far? nothing yet

Did you say you'd never use a pacifier and are now using one? nope

Are there any things you swore you'd never do and now you find yourself doing? letting him sleep in the swing sometimes.
