I USED to...

...say "vanilla" envelope instead of "manila" envelope cause that is how I thought it was said since I was about 5 yrs. old and NO ONE corrected me until I was in my 20's...boy do I feel sheepish. Maaa maaaa!

...think that surely a parent could keep scissors and writing utensils away from children and keep them from writing and cutting things they shouldn't...then I had kids!

...want a horse, but my dad always said "No"! and in my frustration I said "When I grow up I am getting MY horse and NOBODY is gonna STOP me!!!" Now I have a dog that is as big as a Shetland pony (ok not quite, but he is big) and now that I know how much work it takes to own a pet, I NEVER want a horse! ha ha! My dad always gives me the "I told you so" look!

...love Buffet Restaurants, but now I can barely finish eating a full plate so it isn't worth my money.

...have trouble getting to sleep at night, but now I am out within minutes...when I actually get to bed! :)

...dislike Russians because I grew up at the end of the Cold War Era, so I didn't trust them, but then I married someone who lived there for 2 years who loved the people. Then I met a few myself and have learned that a countries people are separate from their politics.

...think that I would be the one to teach my kids about the computer, but have found that they know WAY more than I do and one day Chad at the age of 4 had to show ME how to do something!

...think that I would have a perfectly clean house, but soon learned that it was either the kids being happy learning, exploring and having fun or me yelling and being frustrated all the time.

Amen on the scissors/writing utensils. You can keep 'em locked up and the kids will still find a way to cut their own hair or scribble on a wall.
