    Before I had kids, I swore I’'d never... hear myself say things like, "“I’'m going to pull this car over right now!" It'’s such a benign threat! I hear that and I’'m like, “"Really? That’s become me?”"

    Before I had kids, I swore I'’d never...say things like,“"You better stop crying before I come in there and give you a reason to cry”!" or “"Don’'t make me pull over this car; you'’ll be sorry!"” or “"You kids are ingrates!"

    Before I had kids, I swore I’'d never...show pictures to people who weren'’t interested. Now I find myself showing them pictures on my iPhone of my cat, pictures that my son took.

    Before I had kid I swore I’'d never...have a child biologically. But then a few months after [Zahara] came home, I saw Brad with her and Maddox, and I realized how much he loved him, that a biological child would not in any way be a threat.

    Before I had kids, I swore I'd never...let them sleep in the same room as us. We needed our privacy and alone time too. Cut to: my daughter was in a co-sleeper on the side of our bed for over a year.

    Before I had kids I swore I'd never...perpetuate the Santa myth. Now I force my husband onto the roof at four o'clock in the morning to jingle sleigh bells and simulate the sound of magical hooves descending on our home.

    Before I had kids, I swore I'’d never...own a mini van, ask anyone if they had "poopy pants," or eat mac and cheese for lunch, dinner and sometimes breakfast.

    Before I had kids, I swore I'd never...lose my temper. But then you’'re on an airplane and it’'s delayed….

    Before I had kids, I swore I'd never...say things like, "“There are thousands of children all over the world who don'’t have enough to eat”!" or “"I'’ve told you once, I’'ve told you a thousand times.”"
