Three things that make me a Bad Mommy

Here are my three things :

1. I let Ciara sleep with me every single night. We have been living in our new house for just over two years, and she hasn't once slept in her own bed. I don't feel bad about it at all.

2. I let Ciara drink from a bottle until she was 6 years old. She enjoys lying down and drinking out of a bottle, so I let her. Her teeth are fine and I don't feel bad about it at all.

3. I sometimes (usually) give in to her pleas for material things. I buy her lots of stuff. She still seems to appreciate it. I feel a little bad about this one.

aah yes, material things... the only time i stopped was when i had to choose between groceries and buying the knucklehead what he wants.

it comes down to how YOU feel about it! And it sounds like you sound pretty darn good so good for you!
People judge to make themselves feel better so your honesty and self acceptance is refreshing. I'm a co-sleeper myself. Some days I love it and other days I'm cursing the crick in my neck!

Angel : I feel you :-) If the choice were food or a new barbie, I know which way I'd go!

Candace : You're right, I do feel pretty darn good about it. I love cuddling up to Ciara when I go to bed - it totally rocks!

Sweets : I only have to share with Ciara and the cat, so my Queen is good for now ;-)
