Negligence

My little girl has just fallen off the bed, and it's all my fault.

My 'go down backwards' training obviously hasn't worked yet, instead I
turned my back and...

*THUD*

*silence*

*WAIL*

God, I was glad to hear the wail. Not so glad to see a bruise the size
of a small country on her forehead.

Sh*t I'm a cr*p mum. Overwhelmed by guilt, but trying to tell myself
these things happen. It's not time to call social services yet.

My little girl fell down the stairs when she was about 1.5. i was downstair writing an email and she was upstairs walking round in my shoes. First I heard there were two bumps and she was at the bottom of the stairs. She suffered a greenstick fracture and a bright pink plaster. Had to answer so many questions by complete strangers about how she did it. I still feel bad to this day. These things happen though (and if there is a lesson I learned it was that stair gates are essential).
