'i will never be "that" mom'

Ever heard someone say this?

Or maybe you've even said it yourself?

Have you eaten those words?

Most recently I've found myself saying (or thinking), I said I would never be that mom. Everything from carrying my baby or babies through the mall while pushing an empty stroller. To my child screaming at the top of her lungs in the middle of a restaurant (not once, not twice but three times!) To feeding my children puffs, wagon wheels or crunchies for a 'solid' meal because they either spit baby food out or won't open their mouths.

I'm sure there will be many other examples along the way and I'm learning (in a hurry) NEVER say NEVER!

Thanks for the lesson babies!

Don't we all have ideas before we are mothers? I had this idea that I would only let my babies sleep in their cribs...no sleeping in swings, bouncy seats, etc...yeah, that lasted about 2 days! Ha!
