Yes, it's my turn for mother of the year award. When I picked her up from daycare today, the provider alerted me to something and suggested I have the pedi take a look. I had gotten off work early today and the pedi was still open, so we walked over for a walk-in appt. When we got into the exam room, Mal had pooped so I needed to change her. I put her on the exam table, changed her, then turned to put the diaper in the garbage. The step thing wasn't working so I let go of her for literally 2 seconds to lift the lid of the garbage can.
As I did this, she rolled over the edge of the exam table and fell about 3 feet to the floor. She was hysterical and has been crying on and off ever since. The pedi of course examined her, checked her eyes, checked her whole body for pain. It appears that she hit her knee the hardest, and is otherwise okay. Less than 5 seconds--that's the time I had my eye off of her and the time it took for her to get hurt.
I feel like a total failure as a mother right now. That sounds extreme, but it's totally how I feel.
