Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

If I had a nickel for every time J and I have said this in the past 6 months or so...well, we still wouldn't be mighty, but we'd be rich.

Rules I made before our daughter was born:

* NO fast food of any kind whatsoever for any reason until she can go out and buy it for herself with her own money
* NO television of any kind whatsoever for any reason until she is 2 years old
* NO sweets of any kind whatsoever for any reason (except for her birthday) for as long as possible
* NO eating sweets in front of baby (setting a good example and all)

Things I have been spotted doing since E has graced the planet:

* Giving her french fries so she will stay away from mama's margarita
* Turning on the in-flight television to get her to keep quiet
* Feeding her ice cream and cake to avoid hearing what a mean mama I am
* Sharing ice cream with her from the ice cream truck because he stops right out side the house, and the ice cream truck is fun, and mama needs ice cream

And it only goes downhill from here...

  1. I'm with you there... (hanging head with shame)
    - tv... did it... but here's my theory! If you introduce tv to them while they're young, they get used to it being on and don't necessarily care about watching it. That's the way Zo is anyway. The tv could be on but she really could care less. She watches for about 2 mins and then she's gone. Well, unless its the Muppet Show. She likes the muppets.
    - fast food... did it... chicken nuggets... in desperation of giving her SOMETHING to eat. It was okay though because we eliminated the outside batter.
    - sweets... ice cream... mmMMmm! How can you resist, really.

    She could be into worse things!
    Don't worry... you're doing a great job, mum! :)
