Famous last words…

I would never…is a statement I have said many times in my life. I was never going to yell at my children. I wouldn’t need to—they were always going to be perfectly obedient.  I was never going to give them cell phones or tablets, only crazy parents would allow such a thing. Oh, and I was never going to gain any weight after leaving high school. “Ugh,” is all I have to say to that one.

There are many more never statements I could list, but you get the point. To say “never” is a dangerous thing. There’s a good chance you’ll have to eat your words eventually. Mmm…I just love humble pie. And my kids love reminding me of when I had to eat it over something I said to them.
