My bad curly mom story...

Last night after I put Lydia to bed, she kept making fussing noises and then going back to sleep, which she does sometimes, so I just thought it was one of those nights. When I went to bed, she did this twice just as I was falling asleep and woke me back up. I was getting rather frustrated. :hmph:

Then I found a pile of hair clips in the bed by her head. I realized I'd put them in the pocket of my hoodie that morning when I pulled them out of my hair, and they fell out into the bed when I nursed her to sleep. I'm so glad she didn't wake up enough to try to eat them! :shock:

    You aren't a bad mom...you just didn't realize the pins had fallen onto the bed.

    Aw! You're not a bad mom. I can assure you that you will pull worse things out of her mouth.

    Aw, you're not a bad mom. I'm constantly having to remind myself that I can't leave stuff around because I have a baby- you'd think I'd remember by now. Wait a couple of weeks, you'll be fishing all kinds of things out of her mouth. Aidan is partial to paper, which I guess is ok since it's not particularly dangerous :tongue10:.

    This morning, I got some kind of metal bracket out of D's mouth. We can't for the life of us figure out what it is, where it came from, or how he got it. I guess when a dresser falls apart, we'll know he's been dismantling the furniture.

    Mine grabbed a butcher's knife somehow and was running around with it with the blade pointing at him and we couldn't catch him or get it off him for a couple of minutes!

    We were at Lilly's 6 month check-up and she had just started rolling really well. I wasn't used her rolling and being up on a high surface and I turned my back for one second to put something down. She was almost off the examine table before I turned around. I absolutely don't turn my back from her now without sitting on her in the floor first!

    I very distinctly remember, at the age of two, waking up from my nap and to find that one of my little clippies had fallen out of my hair. I put one in my mouth and swallowed it.

    When my dad came in to get me up, he said, "where's your hair thing?"

    I knew even then that swallowing things was bad, so I said, "I don't know, daddy."

    Dad moved the bed, moved the blankets, moved the pillows, couldn't find it. He looked at me.

    "Where is it?"

    I point at my mouth.

    ...I spent some time sitting in a chair in the corner for that one. :P Not so much for eating the clip as for lying about it.

    Bah. Don't beat yourself up about stuff like that. Every parent has a story like that. It's impossible to keep everything out of their reach at all times. Just do your best and be thankful for all the times you caught it in time.

    At 18 months, my oldest ate a piece of dried dishwasher detergent that he found stuck on the inside of the dishwasher as I was loading it. Caustics and bleach are the very worst things that kids can eat (and dishwasher detergent has both), because it burns their pipes all the way down. He vomitted profusely as he ate it, which probably saved him. The poison didn't actually get past his throat. It was a very scary trip to the hospital, and I felt like schmuck-mom-of-the-year.

    In a matter of like 4 seconds, mine crawled through my in laws doggy door and was running around the backyard by the pool. We were like, "Where is he?" and looked out the back door and saw him. My heart is still racing over that one! He loves water and if he had noticed the pool, he woudl have went STRAIGHT for it! AGHHHHH!

    Kids are just too speedy. Last summer, DD and I were walking by the pool, holding hands. DH was already in the pool. I guess she wanted to go to daddy, because she just jumped on in. Thank goodness DH was only a few inches away, but that was the scariest 5 seconds of my life. I still see her little face under the water sometimes. The good thing was that she didn't panic and try to breathe...I was all set to have to put the CPR course I took to work.

    Thanks for the encouragement, ladies!

    I think my original story wasn't clear enough. In addition to worrying about the choking hazard I created, I felt bad because I think she kept rolling her face into the pile of clips, which was making her fuss so much in her sleep.

    I clearly understood your OP...still not a bad mommy. :flower:
