Bad Mommy

See that red mark on Jack's cheek?
It looks worse now.
And there is a nice blackish undertone to his eye as well.
I won worst-mother-of-the-day-award today.
Jack woke up early.
5:45am.
I was tired when I went to dress him on the changing table.
He was fighting me.
I turned my back for a second to pick up the pants I dropped.
During those two seconds he flung himself off the changing table and fell to the ground - hitting his face on the corner of his toy box as he fell.
I was a bad mom.
I know better than to turn from him.
He is a wild kid with absolutely no fear.
He cried.
So did I.

Oh no! We all have moments like that. Who can guess when these little babyzillas will take advantage of those 2 sec windows and wiggle their way to harm? Justin has a mark like that today from falling on the edge of the treadmill.

You're not a bad mom at all. You area a fantastic mom. Things like this happen. It's life. Don't beat yourself up over it.

I'm sure he will forgive you.
