A weekly series of mom fails that I share in hopes of making other parents feel like they aren’t the only ones having #momfails or #dadfails.
Penelope was being a little too quiet in the kitchen where I found her soaking wet from head to toe, because she thought drinking like a dog from the dog bowl was totally normal for human babies. Monkey see, Monkey do.
Pulling out of the driveway in the car this afternoon and nearly missing the stroller I forgot to put in the trunk, only to walk out and see something that looked oddly like a pair of mini jeans on the ground. Stiff and covered in mud. My guess is that it was from the first snowfall.
Testing a new tanning mouse, not planning on going anywhere. Until I remembered I had an eye exam scheduled, and ran out of the house in such a hurry. Saw about a million people, dressed Penelope in the most eye catching coat known to man and realized I had forgotten to wash off my tan! Of course I was orange or abnormally tanned on the day I see the most people out, in like forever.
Having that constant nagging feeling like I’m forgetting something, especially when I’m washing dishes. Than one day as I was cleaning the bedroom I caught a glimpse under the bed, only to find two fermented baby bottles from the 1800’s under there.. and you don’t even want to know what that smelled like! I debated tossing them, but we can’t be wasting the good bottles lol.
Neighbour stopped by on his regular visits to drop off Bella (because he’s kind enough to walk her with his dog), and not paying attention to little miss and her two side kicks who wandered into my bedroom. I knew something was up when I saw Shotsy run out first, only to find Penelope had grabbed the whole bag of Cheeses and was smooshing them into our bedroom carpet and letting the dogs lick her hands and my floor. I still see orange.
Co-sleeping with P while she woke up to night feed. Yes, she’s still waking up during the night. As we were falling back asleep P must have grabbed her bottle and managed to hurl it with impressive strength right into Tony’s sleeping eye. Let me tell you, we ALL were awake after that.
