Earlier this week, in Eating Our Words: Bloggers Share Their “I’ll Never” Moments, I reached out to a small handful of my favorite bloggers to ask them what they swore they’d never do when they had kids, but find themselves doing after all.

So now, I’ve turned to our wonderful readers for their input.
It seems we’re all a whole lot more alike than we are different.
Here are their I swore I’d nevers…
