Then maybe you should have written that and not what you originally did.

Let's see how well you do when you're not pregnant anymore and you have to control:
infant
1 yo stepson
Neice.

By yourself. In public. You think you've got it all figured out, huh?

Before I was a parent, I was a DAMN GOOD ONE!!!!!

I also said I'd never:

Go to McDonalds
But fruit roll ups
Let them eat off the floor
Bottle feed
Eat processed foods
Eat candy before they were 5

And the list goes on and on....Boy was I delusional!

Talk to us, honey, after you've had a few....I've got 4 and still have a S**t ton to learn.

Just for the record, my 3 year old son WANTS one of those harnesses, because it's got a monkey on it. To him, it's a cool backpack...he said nothing about the public humiliation he's suffer and the subsequent years of therapy he'd have to endure.

You may even play such a game at home. Plus, toddlers don't have much sense of direction. You may be in children's clothing at a mall store, and all of a sudden your child is in furniture and has NO idea how to get back.
Thus why a parent shouldnt bite off more than they can handle. Why would I take 2 small children out in a huge place where ANYTHING could happen if I cant handle them???
(Fixed the quote)

What do you consider a "huge" place? A grocery store? A department store in a small mall? Is a mom supposed to stay home all day with the kids and wait until her husband gets home so she can go grocery shopping, or to a doctor's appointment? (For example) Should a mom be able to take her older child to a class at a rec center, whatever, if she has to take a younger one along? Should the oldest have to wait until the youngest can be trusted completey w/o stroller, leash, whatever to go out? Think about it.

Everytime my husband says - we aren't going to allow that or our child won't behave that way - I always say - you never know! It's easy to say how you can do everything so much better when you haven't been in the other person's shoes.

I totally keep my mouth shut these days...with 4 you never know what they'll do.

When people ask me why we have 4, I tell them (like Bill Cosby said) because we don't want 5!!!
