It’s time for the Listable Life again! Not familiar with what it is? It’s a weekly link up with lists, who doesn’t love a good list post? Head HERE for prompts – thats’ right, I even give you ideas!
5 Parent Fails
1.) This one time, I let my kid fall out of a crib, and I while I know we all have days where we feel like a Crummy Mom – it still never gets easier, especially when you know you should have lowered that darn cribe long ago but put it off because you just wanted the husband to take care of it.
2.) After my oldest daughter was born, I had the usual “mommy brain” moments. But, when the twins came and we spent weeks and weeks in the NICU and life with newborn twins set in, it was really apparent that my brain had left me when we ran out of gas on a major highway…
I still think Honda needs to work on a better gas light alert system when you’re on ‘E’. It should beep and flicker and yell at you or something. Just sayin’
3.) To date, I have managed to throw over half of the teeth away that my oldest daughter has lost in the last year. That’s pretty significant considering the bulk of her front teeth are now gone. I posted this Facebook status after the last tooth tossing episode.
Because I’m accountable and stuff.
4.) I have this tendency to plan grand birthday parties where the decor is oh so pretty but the activities are completely ill fitting for the kids in attendance and so the birthday party is a complete bust . It’s a real talent I have. I need to just go back to the days when we did water parties in the back yard with barbecue on the grill because the last few years of theme parties haven’t really worked out so well.
5.) Finally, I thought that giving my children each an adorable, cuddly lovey was a good idea…until it wasn’t and I’m now faced with regular interventions and relapses in addict behavior. It’s become quite the ordeal if we leave the house without the beloved ‘B’ in hand. Is there a rehab facility for ‘B’ addiction?
These are by no means my only parent fails, and they will most certainly not be my last…what are some of yours?
