Earlier today my babygirl fell from the bed. Thank god we moved the mattress to the living room(really hot)because it's the only place we have ac at the moment. The matress os on the floor so it's not high but i felt horrible. I told DH and he kept telling her" your momma didn't take good care of you" ugh i felt so upset i cried. She has a bump on her forhead and she cried for a few sec. Only. I've been thinking about it all day. I knew that it might happen someday but the feeling that it happened on my watch; i can't shake it off.

What a dick move, saying "momma didn't take care of you". You're already beating yourself up too much- how high off the ground is a mattress on the floor? 9 inches, max? No biggie. Relax and tell DH that he's being an insensitive cocksucker.... Or use nicer terms if that's your style ;)

Last week I accidently didn't buckle my baby into his swing I was over tired and just somehow spaced it. He had been sleeping soundly I got walked into the kitchen only maybe a few feet away from my room poured a drink and as I was putting the bottle back into the fridge my son started crying. I walked in and found him on the floor under his swing. I took him to the Er he was fine but I have never let myself forget it. He had a little bruise on his face as well. As much as it didn't help me to here when it happened it really is ok it was an accident and things happen but after this I bet it will never happen again. I have been checking the buckle like a crazy women so that he never falls again.

Thanks ladies you guys made me feel a bit better. She only cried for a few seconds but it scared me shitless because she turned purple since she couldnt let the cry out, but immidiately returned to being herself. Playing and smiling. I took her outside(ept her awke for a bour just incase) while i washed my car. I was fine but then DH started all his crap and made me feel shitty. He did apologized and said he was just teasing me.

At some point we all have that moment we wish we could of undone. My son fell off the couch when he was a few months old and my daughter fell off my bed when she was 4 months old. Both of my kids were perfectly fine after. However I was a wreck.. My son was asleep on the couch and just rolled off and with my daughter I left her sleeping in bed with her father and walked out of the room to go to the bathroom to hear a thump only to find her laying on the floor. She only cried a few seconds and was fine but to this day I never leave her in my bed.
