I left my paper trimmer out today.

I usually remove the blade and tuck it high out of little fingers reach.

I forgot to today.

BIG Mommy fail.

Someone gashed his finger pretty good.

It took over 30 minutes to stop the bleeding.



More guilt.

I ate too much chocolate to compensate for my guilt.

Which mad me feel even more guilty.



  1. You're not alone,

    And if it makes you feel any better, my daughter sharpened her finger in the pencil sharpener that I left out the other day.

    And I consumed a great deal of guilt chocolate as well. (And then felt guiltier because I didn't share it with the child who deserved it more than me.)

  2. Don't beat yourself up. I left out my hair straightener while it was on. I vaguely thought to remind my daughter not to touch it, but then I thought, nah, she wouldn't do that.

    She did.

  3. Since we are sharing our Mommy FAILS, my son got a hold of the super sharp pumpkin carver that was set out to carve the Halloween pumpkins. Cover on and all, but that didn't stop him. An hour it took to stop bleeding totally. Uggh. We can't be perfect all the time right??

  4. Thank you...this is why I blog. It makes me feel better to know that I'm not the only one that screws up.

  5. Awww, don't be too hard on yourself, okay?

    I know all too well, though. Yesterday, Twinkle the hamster was running around the house in his ball and I'd forgotten to shut the door to the basement. Poor dude tumbled down 20 stairs!! I kept sneaking over to his cage all day, worried he'd have a heart attack or something...
