We’re at Day 7 of the September Sapphire Even Day Blog Challenge, people! Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes on Friday. I had an awesome birthday weekend. My parents drove down from Baton Rouge so Hubby and I could celebrate in New Orleans. I’ll be sharing pics and details later.
Check out my post for today’s writing prompt and link up yours below. AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY HERE.
Oh the things I swore I would never say to my child when I had one. The things I swore I would never do when I got older. Thank goodness, I am happier, healthier, and wiser.
I’ll let my kids stay up as long as they want to
No, ma’am! The Deuce has a bedtime of 9:00 p.m. on school nights. It probably should be earlier, but it’s been working so far. He is fast asleep very soon after. It’s routine. And he’s used to it. This rule is critical so he won’t fall asleep at school. No naptime in the second grade, buddy! On the weekends and non-school nights, he is allowed to stay up pretty late. That’s because we know he’ll fall asleep on his own.
I’ll never whip my kids
Wanna bet? I was raised by old school parents who were raised by old school parents. I probably caught a whipping every week growing up. Because I talked back to my parents, did something I wasn’t supposed to, typical bad child behavior. A whipping normally set me straight…until the next time. My mouth got me in trouble ALL THE TIME. It still does. I cannot tell you how many times my mother said, “Your mouth is gonna write a check that your ass has to cash!” Let’s just say, The Deuce is his mother’s child.
I’ll never tell my child, ‘Because I said so!’
EVERY DAY! Yep! It’s the last word. The denouement to the debate. My son normally can’t argue with that one. However, he attempts to mock me by saying it before I can. If only I could get it to work on Hubby.
I’m never moving back to Louisiana
I’m going to end on that note.
What things have you done or said that you swore you never would?
Are your kids like you were as a child?
