The award for Piece of $h!t Parent of the Year goes to...
My baby fell down the stairs this afternoon. It was horrible, it took 10 years off of my life and I feel like the worst parent on the face of this earth.
Long story short - he survived his first trip to the ER and (thankfully) left with nothing but a few bumps and bruises and one stitch on the top of his head.
I have been shook up all day/night. I can't belive that I dropped the ball like this. I can't believe that this happened to me. I can't belive I took my eyes off of him for literally only seconds and that was enough for something like this to happen. It was a nightmare, but thankfully it turned out just fine.
My husband is coming around, and I'll continue to give him time. I understand. If something like that happed on his watch I would have ripped him a new a-hole.
I just never thought I would ever be so dumb and flat out neglectful.
