I think everyone has, at one point or another, vowed to not do the same things their own parents did. The embarrassing and gross things that "cool" people just don't do. Well, guess what? My baby is barely over the five week mark and those once thought sacred vows made years ago have already been broken.
I licked my fingers and wiped my baby's face clean.
And I picked my baby's nose.
Next thing you know I will be telling him he isn't allowed friends over just because he asked nicely.
I will probably sing along to my favorite songs while we're out driving (because, being the driver and mother, I will have complete control of the radio - no room for arguing.)
And I will probably end up making him finish the food on his plate before he can be excused from the table.
Maybe my parents weren't so weird and uncool.
Maybe, perhaps, they were just human beings who didn't always love my friends being around.
Who actually had an opinion and preference when it came to radio stations.
And maybe secretly hoped that food on the plate would never get eaten so that I would eternally be stuck sitting at the kitchen table - giving them a little bit of a break!
I have a feeling a lot of those vows I made as a child will be broken!
Oh, please excuse me. I think I see a booger in my baby's nose. I have to go pick it out.
