Mommy Fails June 2018

When bad things happen to good parents

“It was raining when I arrived home with my son. I grabbed my usual load to bring inside and put sleeping baby on my shoulder. My foot slipped and I fell. Luckily, I was holding him perfectly and only mommy was soaked.” –Elizabeth, Carrollton

“I was planning the perfect first birthday party for my son, with custom plates. Didn’t notice I misspelled his name… Happy Birthday Natheniel.” –Maria, Dallas

“My husband routinely and playfully slaps me on the butt, saying, ‘Hey, Boo.’ As we were visiting him at his job, my son DJ walks up behind my husband’s boss, slaps her on the butt and says, ‘Hey, Boo!’” —Kelliny, Cedar Hills

“My kids were arguing and I just didn’t have patience to respond calmly. In anger, I picked up a wooden stool and slammed it several times on the floor while screaming at them to stop. I broke one of the stool’s legs.” —Kristie, Richardson

“My gut begins rumbling while standing in line at Disney. After the ride, I sprint to the bathrooms. During my bathroom break, I hear my son tell my daughter, ‘NO!!!! Don’t lick the trash can!’” —Becky, Aledo

“I’m at Target and my 3-year-old tells me he needs to go the potty. I figure I might as well use it while I’m there too. As soon as I sit down, my son yells, ‘Mommy, are you making poo-poo too? Are you going to have bad poops like me?!’ The women in the other stalls burst into laughter.” —Angela, Las Colinas
