I will never buy my children clothes with licensed characters on them . . .I've added a new category to the blog. It's called "Dumb rules I made before I had children."
Dumb rules I made before I had children,
Marty, a.k.a. canape
Yeah, I had that rule too....lol...
us too- and i still don't allow other people to do it... unless its a character we are already obviously down with... we simply modified this rule to if they find them on their own and love em thats cool... but we don't force any licensed things down their throats- i know parents who do!
"i will never succumb to the cult of "Disney" princesses." YEAH, RIGHT!!!
HA! Yeah, I think I might've had that idea in my head. And once I found out I was having a girl, I was all, "No Disney Princess crap shall enter my house, ever!" Um, yeah. Catie ate a Princess Gummy vitamin this morning and proudly wore her Princess & the Frog t-shirt to daycare today (because Tiana's dress is green, therefore totally ok for St. Patrick's Day). Sigh...
HA! I had the same rule. Now, I don't think my son has any clothes that DON'T have some sort of licensed logo on them.
Oh I think I had that rule once. Way back, before kids. Yep. Doesn't last long. Now everything in my house is High School Musical, Tinkerbell and Cars. It's like Disney threw up everywhere.
Oooh, I'd forgotten about that rule, but I had it too. It didn't go well.
Don't you just love that. Or how about now that you are a mom and you hear others saying things like that. "My kids won't use a binky, my kids will be potty trained by 2, etc", you know their time is coming!
Haha! So true. I also had a rule that my kid wouldn't watch TV before he turned two... big HAHA.
Oh yeah, that's on my list, too. Have managed to contain it some -- mostly pajamas. The princess onslaught is already making me nervous.
My husband has one that he just won't shake: Our kids must be involved in some kind of organized team sport until they are in middle school. Of course, he made this rule before he met our oldest who is THE most awkward and un-athletically inclined 5yo you have ever seen in your entire life. Plus, he would much rather draw comics or read or play with Legos than do anything in the world. Nerd? Yes. Athlete? Only begrudgingly. And at this point my husband isn't willing to budge. The only saving grace is that my husband is also unwilling to do any of the things associated with actually signing a child up for sports activities, so I have several "Oops! I missed the deadline." to fall back on!
