I have a Zazu fail for you guys. Zazu decided that you didn't need 5-7 blogs I've been working on for the last 3-6 months. Really great material that I took my time with. She went on a swipe and delete spree. I, the adult in the situation ( unimportant detail), said yes child who recently broke my phone, you can play with it. Unlocked by the way. So whose fault is this really? I blame the almost one year old because I just said I'm working on reducing my fails. This one is for Zaz...
Tonight I got up for the first of my frequent nighttime bathroom trips. I came back very quickly, I'd say much faster than normal. And the scariest thing happened... I couldn't find my daughter!
Parenting is not easy. Tonight my husband and I are having a discussion to figure out how to discipline a nine month old. My daughter is mimicking negative behaviors and has started exhibiting certain positive behaviors in negative ways.
Taking responsibility: mommy fails
I'm not perfect. There are no perfect parents. I fail and fall short constantly. Some of the fails are funny and others are more serious. This week my mommy fail is hurting my daughters head. I have hit her head a few times , 7 to be exact. Let me preface this by saying anytime she hits her head I'm responsible because I'm the adult, so I hit her head. The fact that I know how many times should tell you I take it serious. I know head injuries are very serious and can lead to issues like brain bleeding etc. Zazu just started standing from a crawl and cruising around. So naturally there may be more bumps and bruises. In the last 24 hours she bumped her head 3 of those 7 times. What kind of mother am I!? No injuries ...thank goodness and I've laughed it off at this point.
I'm starting to wonder if this will be a bumpy phase. I hit her fore head on the bed, the back of her head on the floor and she just hit her head on the remote. I laughed so hard at the last one I lost my breath and my husband had to grab her from me. I truly pray none of this affects her and she hasn't cried at all but geeze am I just a crappy parent. Mommy fail central over here. I'm super excited for the I just learned to walk let me try to run away stage.
