I make a lot of changes to my lifestyle because I like to keep the toddler's life the way it used to be for previous generations. She gets to see no TV, no movies. She also never gets junk food and chocolates. So it becomes very difficult to take her out. The places are restricted to those meant for kids or proper sit down restaurants.
That I am, somehow ,going against the stream, to raise the kid becomes apparent only when there are guests in the house. They need to be taken out and taken to movies and TV is a norm. But when I restrict TV and when one of me or spouse stay behind with the toddler when we book movie tickets, people find it a little weird.
I make separate food for her. I don't feel comfortable making her eat pizzas,Chinese Takeaways or burgers. Though, trust me, she would love them!
I make sure that the toddler is asleep
I surely become a villainous dictator, in the eyes of many. I dont know whether what I do is right or wrong. But I maintain these rules in the house
But these are expected little changes that we mothers make in life and keep making. But there should be some little moments each mom should have for retrospection and crib about it . So that is what I am doing right now.
Let me crib Please :D and then I will continue to lie down next to a calm sleeping toddler and well, do nothing else.
