Things I will never do as a parent

This is a list of things I said—Pre-Truman—that I would never do as a parent. 

       ·         I will never let my child eat in the car

·         I will never change a diaper in a public place

·         I won’t let my child play on the floor of a restaurant

·         No weapons!

·         On commuter ferries, I won’t let my child run and scream

·         I will never open up a snack food in the grocery store to pacify my child and then hand the clerk an empty wrapper
This list makes me laugh and humbles me because clearly I had no idea what I was talking about. Things change when you have a squirming, crying little one in your life.

  1. I think I thought very similarly to you pre-Marigold. We sure thought we were going to have all the power with our kids. HA!
