...because I need it for all the words I've been eating!!!
Here are a few statements that have come out of my mouth in the past...you know that "other" life....the one BEFORE kids:
"You shouldn't spank your kids...just talk to them and help them understand."
"I'll never dress like those 'other' Moms...no kakis for me, thank you."
"I'll always buy matching sandals and handbags."
"I'll never nurse my babies...that's gross"
"I'll only nurse my babies for 6 months...after that, it's just gross."
"I'll only nurse my babies for a year, TOPS....after that, it's gross."
"Why can't that Mother shut up her bratty kid...I shouldn't have to listen to that while I shop for groceries."
"What? You make your kids 'hold up the wall' for discipline...I'll never resort to that....you just haven't tried reasoning enough with him/her."
"I'll never become a Mall Walker."
"Wow, that kids such a brat...he/she must not be getting enough attention at home."
"You had those kids...don't complain about raising them!"
"Parents SHOULD go out WITHOUT their kids sometimes...just find a sitter." (ok I still feel this way...just can't bring myself to use a sitter)
"Six months is more than enough time to lose that baby weight...just work out!"
"A year is more than enough time to lose that baby weight...just work out!"
"Having kids won't change ME...I'll always be 'ME'."
