Since having Tabitha-Lo I have changed my mind on so many topics I used to feel strongly about.
Here's a few of them...
1. I will use non disposable nappies and not add to landfill - This has been replaced with 'sod it I'll be dead by the time it's an issue'
2. I will not let my child be babysat by TV - This has been replaced with my Sky plus consisting of Show Me Show Me, Same Smile and Pepper Pig for emergencies eg: when CBeebies has finished!
3. I will never swear infront of my child - This is now replaced with phrases like 'oh no she said sit, she likes to say sit'
4. I will bake daily and I will be uber house wife - This has been replaced with 7:30 trains, Calpol in nursery bags and looking forward to the peace of my office for eight hours.
Life just isn't a text book example, either that or I'm just not THAT good. Either way I'm not bothered.
We bumble along and make stuff up on a daily basis.
Tonight Tabitha sleeps with a dummy, this week aged 18 months and never ever wanting one before, she has decided she does now.
Do I question my parenting, the changes I've inflicted on her of late? Should I?
Before you start clicking comment boxes to lecture/advise me, don't bother. I don't care, if the child wants it she can have it.
I didn't used to like tomatoes but at 15 I decided I did, I didn't blame my mum.
