Here are this months mommy fails. You can read about more lessons I’ve learned here. As mamas we’re constantly learning and thus there are some stumbles along the way!
Last night I had a marvelous, much needed catch up with my best friend. Since she lives a few hours away now we don’t get to hang out as much but we do make time for phone vents. Our babes are two months apart (she has twins!) and story swapping is a necessity.
As both of us with babes who are learning to walk and rapidly developing some mom fails definitely make an appearance. And while these are most definitely not major mom fails (I promise there’s more!) they did provide some entertainment for our conversation last night and I thought I’d share.
Here’s a list of October #mommyfails
Baby bear found the cat food bag. After she had a handful I told her “that’s the kitties food”. She wanted to give the food to the kitty so she chased him all over the upstairs.. spilling food, every step of the way. FAIL
Teaching my daughter to learn animal noises.. she will only roar. Meaning, she now roars every time someone or thing comes near her. The cat, a car, a ball. Everything gets roared at… even her brother
Also teaching baby bear animal noises.. I meow and woof all day. She has learned to hiss like a snake. FAIL
Baby bear wants to pet every dog she sees. When I say gentle, she proceeds to stomp, flail and scream “Daga” towards the animal as loudly as possible. It’s not very inviting. Clearly teaching word meaning has gone well. FAIL
Was at in-laws and wanted to check on baby bear sleeping. Walked into dark room and forgot where I put the pack & play. Tripped over pack and play. Held position like ninja.. didn’t wake baby! Still wanted to check her, proceeded to reach my hand into pack and play hoping to feel her breathing… smushed hand into her face and woke her. FAIL
Took babes diaper off for bath, forgot to get something from room. Come back and babe has peed all over tub, floor and bath mat. FAIL
Woke sleeping baby because I wasn’t satisfied he was breathing loud enough and couldn’t see his chest FAIL
Went for walk twice to backtrack for missing sock that was thrown overboard FAIL
Let babe eat scraps of food from the floor because she wouldn’t eat in her high chair and threw all food overboard. FAIL
Driving kids to play group forgot pasta boiling on stove. Raced home before house burned down. Ruined pasta. Ruined pot. Ignored it and went to play group to pretend it didn’t happen. FAIL
