Things I thought before kids ....
I will not let my kid watch TV on my iPhone
I will not allow tacky toys or baby clutter into my home (my son grew an interest in Thomas the train and now it warms my heart to see his little Thomas trains he loves so dearly)
Breastfeeding will be natural and come easy (spoiler for me, it was not)
@kingdommom I definitely make one meal and encourage my 2.5 yr old to try the same thing we are eating for dinner. Sometimes its a major fail and he refuses to try it or what he likes one day, wont like the next (the forever parenting struggle). If I know he's eating great all day, I wont worry to much about it he will eat when hes hungry next. But if he didn't have a good breakfast/lunch/snacks I sometimes cave and make him toast with PB and a banana before bed. Usually he'll go for that as a "bed time snack".
