i'm a horrible parent....(the first of many)

so today was my official.....i'm a horrible parent.....moment. and the funny thing is it wasn't even me who "did" it. mike was home for a long lunch from work and he had jeremiah in his room doing who knows what and i'm working away at my desk and then i hear the dreadful noise i've been waiting for since he started getting a move on (aka crawling)........

oh f*!%. (that was mike not jeremiah) **shocking gasp**
(who knew mike cussed right!? yea he does. more frequently with age. it's funny except in times like these.)

*****QUICK 2 second PAUSE******

....and a thud, then a scream (cause jeremiah's head hit the ground)

let's just say, i knew when mike dropped the f-bomb that jeremiah was taking a tumble. i just wasn't sure off where.....the bed or the changing table.
**secretly hoped for the bed cause it's a shorter distance to the ground.

i think i made it into the bedroom in under 3 leaps. mike had him and he was totally crying for real and mike had this look of terror in his eyes. of course questions come tumbling out of mouth while trying not to make it out to be like mike was totally ignorant and at fault.....cause honestly it could have easily been me. i've done the same thing a bunch of times.

i guess jeremiah was on his tummy on the bed reaching for some stuff and mike turned his back for literally 1 second turned around and he was already half off the bed. i can't imagine that moment.

so for the next 4 hours i was in a panic that since he landed on his head something bad happened and he had internal bleeding or something. but he's fine and was like mom....it's cool i'm good. i'm bouncing, crawling, singing. you know the usual. so calm down. but i still feel like a horrible parent.

we all do this at least once right? we all fell on our heads as babies right?

oh God i hope so.

I'm trying to think of horrible things that have happened while children are under my supervision, but I can't really think of any. MY dog bit Gavin once on the hand, very minor, but I wasn't supervising, and we JUST got the dog.

Kids fall. They break bones, they still love ya!
