Bad Mommy!

If there was an award for "Bad Mommy of the Week" I'm thinking I might be a front runner and it's only Tuesday! Not only have I driven off without Munchkin being buckled in, but now she is sporting a round, little bruise right in the center of her forehead. Compliments of our hardwood floors and Mommies lack of attention.

I'm not sure exactly how the whole thing happened, but what I do know is that she fell down atleast one step, and landed flat on her back at the bottom. I say one step because that's how many times I heard her head hit, just once (thank you Lord!) I had just picked her up off of the steps and set her on her feet to follow me into the kitchen for dinner. I walk through the kitchen door and hear a loud THUD! Followed by a horrific scream, you know the kind that actually goes silent?

What is wrong with me this week? I'm usually so attentive and careful. Is it possible to still have bouts of "Mommy Brain" a year after your child is born? Is this something that never goes away?

Guess I need to to start working on my acceptance speech... Maybe it will go something like this:

I'd like to thank, all of my readers that haven't yet called the authorities......

I LOVE your blog!! It is absolutely hysterical. And as far as you having mommy brain. She's walking and she's gonna fall. Alot. And yes, I have forgotten to latch RG in her seat before. And why is it when the hubby is in the car? You feel guilty enough without having the grunt of your counterpart to deal with ! LOL !!!
