You know the one that licks her finger to pat down her daughter's hair. Oh yeah, I caught myself today trying to "tame" my daughter's new spiky hair-do that is growing.

The other thing I swore up and down I would "never" do to my kids is to pat their head (it used to drive me nuts when my mom would pat mine). And I found myself patting my husband's head last night.

What things do you find yourself doing that you swore you never would when it comes to motherhood?

Same here! I found myself doing that right away -- I couldn't believe it!

i might have you all beat...
our mums are one thing, but extended relatives?!

you know that annoying thing your aunts or grandmas would do when they came to visit - pinching your little cheeks and shaking them til they hurt?

well, i can't stop doing to my son.
it's horrible; do you think he might become scarred from it?
i know i that was... :

I did that to my ten year old not so long ago. Just out of sheer habit.

He was rightfully disgusted with me

I found myself using the girls first and middle names to call them when they're in trouble
