Your Tweets: What You Swore You'd Never Do As a Parent, But Now Totally Do. Parents Share Hindight on Twitter.

True story: before I had kids, I attended a party at a home of a friend who was a mom to two small kids. There were crayon marks on the living room wall. The kids didn’t want to sit still during the party so they played in their room unattended or ran around for attention. I was appalled. Now I am a mom. JUST TRY to find a wall in my home that doesn’t have some sort of crayon mark that I have yet to wash off. Talk about hindsight. I feel so bad for being so judgy back then.

I put a call out on Twitter for your confessions about the things you swore you’d never do once you became a mom or dad but now? You totally do those very things.

Oh what we know now! Click through these ten honest tweets from moms who are eating crow about things they criticized other moms about, before kids.
