I thought I'd start a thread (where I may be alone ) but I thought it may help if I could confess my bad mother moments in a guilt free and non-judgemental thread i.e. for fun! Bad Mother moments like catching their head on a door frame as you walk through it (sure I read that somewhere on here), finding them playing with scissors (like a friend of mine did), giving double the dose of Ibuprofen by accident (another friend).
Wanna join me? Confess your sins Bad Mothers!
Here is my bad mother confession from Sunday. You may have seen my thread about a poo stain in the carpet. Wanna know how that happened? Well our two were having some nappy off time. I was putting some clothes away and DH was wandering about. Charlotte had crawled off into our bedroom where she normally looks at herself in the full length mirrors.
Anyway, a minute or two (literally no fibs!) later we found her. She was up to her elbows in it and not only that it was squished between the fingers of both hands and smeared all across her face.
My confession is that my daughter ate her own poo!
Ha ha been there with the eating poo, Ella's had sweetcorn in it....
Also the scissors. Ella keeps finding my nail scissors and tells me she's a hairdresser.
I'm an awful mother, here are just todays!
Today I walked into Ella's bedroom and found her standing on her window sill and hanging out the window. If I'd been 5 seconds later she'd have been dead on the patio beneath the window. The only reason she was in there alone was because I was putting Alex in his cot for a nap and told her to go and wait in her bedroom for me to put her down, she then went in her room and pulled a toy over to the window so she could climb up and hang out of it. (Window is always locked shut when she's napping or asleep)
I found Alex halfway up the stairs as I'd forgotten to lock the stairgate.
Ella almost stabbed herself with the kitchen knife, she grabbed it when she was sat on the side whilst I was sorting tea.
and yesterday a dining room chair collapsed on Alex's head, leaving him with a bruise the size of a 50p on his forehead, because I forgot to fold it down and put it away.
Sorry Helen have to to say it.....what a shitty day you had .....I can think of too many bad mother moments in the past here are just a few....
My little girl sliced all 10 of her fingers after I left it on the side of the bath....she also fell into a bath I had run with all her clothes on thank god it wasnt scalding...going to stop now but I will def post any from now on!
P.S My 10 year old son only REALLY listens to me if I swear when I get mad it is the only way I can get him to listen without smacking (thank god he is a good boy nearly all of the time)
Today me and Sonny were both busy posting on eBay and letting Bethanie wonder round the room, she pulled this wooden fold up chair on herself and was caught under it lol. I've done the hit head on side of doorway a few times. Then we had the irresponsible not-strapping baby into highchair incidents (as if once wasn't enough) when she slipped under and got stuck, and had to be removed by force lol. She also fell off the bed once, lmao.. luckily there was a pillow on the floor and our bed isn't that high or it would have been bad!
Im sure there are more, generally silly little accidents. If I remember more, i'll post again
Tom had a bruise on his forehead last week where he'd been sat on my knee whilst I was on PC. He was happy bouncing up and down until suddenly he whacked forward and headbutted the desk. Bad Mother for not looking after him properly and surfing instead.
