A friend of mine posted a picture of her little girls belly button this morning & it reminded me of Emily's cord falling out. By falling out I mean the time I yanked it off...on accident.
(p.s adding this picture of her when she was so little makes this momma a little emotional)
I was changing her diaper when it happened. I went to pull up her shirt & as I pulled up her shirt I yanked her belly button. She sobbed & so did I. I felt awful. Her pain subsided very quickly but man I felt so bad. It was my first time to feel like I had failed as a mom. Aren't you supposed to protect your child not hurt them?
Don't worry I realize I wasn't a failure as a mom. It was a mistake and I am sure I will make about a zillion more before her life is over.
Sometimes I think we as mommas need to remember that sometimes we make mistakes and sometimes we do or say things that can hurt our children. I think it's important we learn that most importantly we love them & they will forget those little mistakes we make.Pin It
