Bad Mommy Moment

Natalie joins us in bed between 5 and 6 am most days lately. She nurses and goes back to sleep until sometime between 6 and 7. This morning, she woke up around 6:30. She chatted and crawled over us, periodically poking one or the other of us in the face. We semi-consciously tried to get her back to sleep, and then gave up and sleepily chatted back through heavy lids. We both realized at about the same time that she was much too low in the bed. Gasping, we sat bolt upright just in time to see her slide off the foot of the bed…

…and land, grinning, on her feet.

Never have I been so glad that, when she was learning to climb stairs, we taught her how to safely back down them. Yikes.


  1. PHEW! Good Nat, and NOT bad moms at ALL.

  2. NO bad mommies!!! Busy baby; life as you know it is OVER. Unless, of course, you can all fit into a crib…

  3. Those hair-raising moments will become more frequent with her increased mobility.

  4. I can totally relate! Our daughter is 17 months old and has been sliding safely off the bed for as long as I can remember thanks to teaching her how to get down the stairs safely.
