Don’t you hate it when people without children judge parents? You know the ones who are scandalised at the sight of a dummy and tut when they see a toddler being handed an iPad to keep them quiet? I’m afraid to admit this but I was one of those people. Honestly I was so smug when I was pregnant, I was going to be one of those mums who only gave my little darling organic home-made food and would stick to a strict bed time routine. Ha! A lot of the things I said I would ‘never do’ I now do on the daily. Not all of it is ideal but they keep our little family happy (and sane!). Here are some of the things I said I wouldn’t do as a mum but totally do!
Whoever says, ‘I slept like a baby’ has clearly never had one. Either that or they’re one of those annoying parents whose children are ‘good sleepers’. Don’t you just hate them? The Queen has never been a good sleeper and adults are weirdly obsessed by this. Honestly, whenever I meet a new person and tell them I have a young child, the very first thing they ask is ‘is she a good sleeper?’ To this I usually say, ‘no, she’s crap’ and hope that this kills the conversation and luckily for me, it usually does.
