There are many things I swore I wouldn't do when I was pregnant. But then Paul came and I was forced to shift my expectations.
I thought I would disinfect every toy, pacifier, nipple. I do not.
I thought I would always buy organic formula and baby food. I do not.
I thought I would stimulate Paul enough everyday so I would not have to rely on any TV programs. I do not.
I thought I would wash all Paul's clothes in the special baby detergent. I do not.
I also thought I would never let our golden retriever lick spit up off my child's face. But I do. And frankly, it is the most efficient clean-up I can think of.
