I know a lot of the FTM are expressing their totally normal fears about being responsible for these new precious people coming into their lives, so how about we S(+)TM tell some of our mistake stories?
Mistakes WILL happen and the best we can hope for is that none will have lasting effects.
When DD was about 3 months old we met up for lunch with a few other D12 bumpie friends for lunch. After lunch, we decided to drive to a park and walk the babies around in the strollers. When we arrived at the park I went to take DD out of her infant seat and realized that she was not buckled in! I started bawling right there and had bad anxiety about driving with her for a good year after that happened. The park wasn't far from the restaurant, but we still had to get on a highway and drive a couple of exits to the park. It was a horrible feeling.
I know I've made many more mistakes but that was my first huge one that has always stuck out in my mind. Mommy guilt is the worst!
