I yelled at my daughter the other morning, to put her shoes on as we were late yet again for school. She started crying and I felt sooo guilty after dropping her off. As moms our patience is always being tested. It is comforting to know that all have 'bad mommy' moments. Liked your post about this, could really relate :-)
Thank you. I think it's great when I can connect with people who have similar thoughts or feelings.
Oh my goodness, when my daughter was an infant - I forgot to buckle her into her car seat! I'm not sure I have ever confessed that. I was always so fearful of something happening to her, yet when we arrived home one day and I went to take her car seat out of the back of my car - I noticed she was not buckled down into the seat.
My heart still drops to think about that moment. That is perhaps my worst mommy moment. Maybe. Oh I'm sure I can think of 100 more.
My absolute worst mommy moment was the day I burnt my daughter's face! I accidentally left a hot iron on the floor and she crawled right into it! It was HORRIBLE! She was about 9 months old. Thank GOD it was only a 2nd degree burn. She is 3.5 years now and the only evidence it ever happened (besides photos) is a small red line on her cheek when she gets hot or flushed. ~Jamie
Well, I had one of the more unexpected bad mommy moments when I was getting everything ready for the first day of school, less then a week before the first day, and realized I still had the school registration form on my desk... I can't believe I forgot to register her for school, on top of missing the class we needed for dance, so I spent a day dealing with the late school registration, and am still hoping someone will change out of that dance class so she can go...
OMG. The day I locked my purse, and my keys, and my cell phone, and my daughter in the car. Oh, yeah, did i mention my house phone was dead, it was the middle of the day and no neighbors were home. It was the worst day. I did what any of us would do, I blogged about it here. She thought it was hysterical, as I tried everything from a coat hanger, to trying to convince her (at two and a half mind you) to try and unbuckle herself...Facebook ended up saving the day. Thank goodness for my brother, my bestie, and my Dad. I was this close to breaking the sunroof in.

A number of times, while using naptime to get blogging done, I've forgotten to make dinner. :(
I just wrote a blog post post about this as well! Less about specific moments and more as a whole. My funniest/most recent "bad mommy" moment was the other day at the grocery store where my toddler pointed to a display of wine and said "mommy's ba-ba's!!" ;)
