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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
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 <i>my husband's</i> head last night.<br><br>
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...<br>
our mums are one thing, but extended relatives?!<br><br>
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?<br><br>
well, i can't stop doing to my son.<br>
it's horrible; do you think he might become scarred from it?<br>

I did that to my ten year old not so long ago. Just out of sheer habit.<br><br>
He was rightfully disgusted with me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
