I swore I'd never get married young like my mom. So, I got married at 20 1/2 instead of 19.
I swore I'd never be a stay-at-home mom. It looked so boring. I've been a stay-at-home mom for ten years and I'm not sure where the time went.
I swore I'd never drive a minivan. I wanted to be a cool mom and drive an SUV. We bought our first minivan when I was 25.
I swore I'd never have more than four kids. We have six.
I swore I'd never count at my children. We count to three on a regular basis.
I swore I'd never yell at my children. I wish I could say that I don't. But I do.
I swore I'd never be a mean mom and make my kids wash dishes. They have a dish chore every night after dinner.
I swore I'd never use the television as a babysitter. A little TV never killed anyone, right?
I swore I'd never be a runner. I ran three miles yesterday and am seriously contemplating running a half-marathon in the spring.
I swore I'd never give birth without an epidural. I've done it twice. By choice.
The moral of the story? Never say never.
