The "Bad mommy award" for today goes to...

...me!

Sean fell out of his crib this morning. I was laying in bed, not wanting to get up, listening to him babble over the monitor...then THUD! I ran in there and he was laying on the floor, when he saw me he started crying. He got over it pretty fast though, I don't think he got hurt, just stunned himself. The crib rail was down so I'm afraid that I probably forgot to put it up when I put him to bed last night. He's absolutely fine, but I feel terrible about it!

mama. I won the award yesterday when Nikolas slipped on the bathroom floor onto the back of his head because I had splashed some water trying to fill a bucket.

He was fine after some cuddling but I felt like a big jerk.

ETA: That's is not the only "award" that I own.

My DS started climbing/falling out of his crib at 12 months. We had to put him in a twin bed at 15 months just to avoid injuries! I know it's not exactly the same thing...but I do understand the fear of the "bump". You'll make it another day Mama!

Every mama has those awards...and if they say they don't, then they tell white lies. It's okay and so is he...I think it is a rite of passage for baby and mama.

Re: The "Bad mommy award" for today goes to...

Been there, done that I still think my worst bad mommy award was when my one dd was a nb and I put her on the couch and went into the other room, forgetting that I had a 22 month old who would think it would be fun to push new baby sister onto the floor-she was less than a week old and ended up with carpet burn all over her face Or the time, I left the girls inside to get the mail and my one dd locked me out of the house for an hour-in MI winter......the list definately goes on and on Don't get on yourself to hard, it happens sara

LOL.. Don't feel bad. He was probably lying on the floor wondering how he got there, then wondering what he should do about it, then when you walked in, he decided he'd better hurry up and cry. Cuz clearly, Mom looks upset... that's a good time to cry.
