I wanted to thank all the nice people that commented and reassured me that I'm not a bad mommy...
And now I'm here to prove you wrong.
We're trying to potty train my daughter. Ha. She's been in no hurry. Until yesterday. Then she decided to wear panties. As much as I hate diapers, they're so easy compared to the frantic panic of a three year old that has to pee NOW! And so, she had to pee NOW and in my hurry to get her to the bathroom, I forget to latch the gate at the top of the stairs. And the baby tries to follow us.
He fell down them. Of course. Fortunately, there are only two. Unfortunately, they are wood stairs that lead to a wood floor. And he hit his head on the gate going down. Bump on his forehead, bump and cut on the back of his head, skinned nose. Poor baby.
Bad mommy. Good thing my husband is an Emergency Medical Tech...so I call him and he reassures me that it's fine, just to watch him, etc.
(It's also a good thing that my husband is so patient with his mental patient of a wife.
...although I'd never tell him that.)
Then...get this. I drop the phone on the baby while trying to hang it up. I drop it on him. Right on his face and it hits him in the eye. He starts crying again and now his eye is swelling up.
What did the poor kid do to deserve me?
Today, however, was uneventful. There was no school today, so everyone was home, but no one was wounded, bruised, maimed...not a single bandaid was needed.
There was a lot of crying, but I think it was mostly me.
