Funny Mom moments **this topic contains humorous comments about babies/kids/toddlers**

I'm reading that a lot of Mom's, not just here but in everyday life (with new and with older babies), are struggling right now and was hoping to share some funny things that have happened to me/us mostly to cheer people up. Chime in add to the conversation. Sometimes we just need someone/thing to make us smile to get us over the hump.

I will start:

#1 So I shared that our ten month old was assessed for occupational therapy since he's behind his sister by about a month. The nice ladies came to the house and were working with him and observing him, then one of them passed him to his Dad with both of them saying that he needed to be changed.  We checked him, nope that's just my son's normal stinky gas. #aboy'sMomlife# #greendeathcloud#

#2 So I've been sick with bronchitis/borderline pneumonia (bad excuse) and I was thinking of asking my husband (who is the pick up person from child care) that IF they have recently eaten (their schedule waffles with have ate the last meal at daycare or at home depending on traffic at 6:15-6:45 etc.) that he drive around the block a couple of times so they would go to sleep and we could just move them from their car seats to their cribs. Survival mode is activating. #badmomguilt#

  • @stella_700 I love this idea!

    when were were just a couple days home from the hospital I was falling asleep and told DW can you hold the baby, they gave her to me. She took her and I instantly fell asleep. When I woke backup I found DW holding the my childhood teddy bear cradled in her arms while full on asleep. I was in a screaming/crying panic searching the covers for the baby only to find her safely sleeping in her bassinet next to the bed. Aaaaaaaand that was the day we ordered the owlet..lol.

    Omg, that would freak me out so bad! I can see why you got the owlet!!

    Here's a funny dad moment --

    So, my husband is an avid video game player and fan of watching his online friends play games live on Twitch tv....I had fallen asleep early that evening and when I got up, it was about 11 pm, heard him watching games in his office, and I assumed he had put her down for sleep in her crib or pack'n'play...but no baby there.

    I walk into his office, trying to figure out where she was (this was before sleeping through the night) and she's sitting with him while he is watching someone play a super gorey and bloody video game. He says, "She was getting fussy." 

    I freak out: "She can't watch that!! What are you doing?!! You're going to give her nightmares and traumatize her!!!" etc etc

    He shrugged. "She can't understand it; it's fine."

    My jaw just drops and I look at her staring intently at some scene of a monster getting blown up. I tell him, "Well, at least cover her eyes..."

    /sigh  My poor little girl...

  • Around delivery I had a lot of complications and late night ER visits. One night after all this I was up late feeding baby (we were both fine). Ozi made a noise and DH went from deep sleep to jumping out of bed and starting to get dressed. I was so shocked I watched him for a bit before I asked him where he was going. He looked at me completely bewildered and said ‘I don’t know’. My poor traumatized husband :D

  • @mbradfo2 hahaha to the video games.  I was listening the the radio and singing along to some old throwback 90s rap song which had very dirty lyrics and used the same defense.

    @safire3 your hubby gets the sweetheart award. Wanting to jump at a moments notice for his family. ❤️

  • Gaming DH and their babies. Little girl wants nothing more than to "help" her dad play on the PS4, she is really, really focused on that controller.  Baby boy, totally not interested.

  • Hahaha @JWatt5 I'm LOL'ing at your story. I had a similar one, except one day I found my toddler digging in a flower pot and trying to eat dirt lol.

    The other day he was climbing on my lap saying "sit, sit, sit"....only it sounded like "shit shit shit". Naturally I whipped out my phone and took a video and we've been laughing at it ever since. He had no clue why I was laughing so he started laughing with me. I know it's bad, but he doesn't say the actual S word, so I think it's ok to laugh at his expense this time.

  • @Tulips29 - my mom was surprised he liked it - clearly she hasn’t taken a whiff of powdered baby formula - that stuff is disgusting (as well as the nasty baby burps from it) - I’d rather eat dog food. He always sucked it down though haha.

  • Victoria has decided that cheerios/puffs are fun to play with. She's discovered that they can be used as arts and crafts and has begun "decorating" herself with them sticking them to her face, brother's face, Mom's neck, Dad's hair, etc. She laughs and laughs, thinking its funny. Her brother hasn't found it as amusing, poor sweetie.
