Ok ladies, you all know you have a story.
Probably about once a week something happens and it just makes me think 'I'm such a bad mother, I should have known'.
Well this week I was giving my 6 month old a bath and he sits up really good so now I just put a few inches of water in the tub and let him sit and play...always supervised of course!! So, I had him sitting in the tub and I had my hand around his belly and under one arm to support him and I looked away for a second to hang the towel with my other hand and he must have reached for something.
So in slow motion he leaned over and since his head is so large the momentum got him and his little slippery bum slipped out from under him and he banged his head on the tub and then fell face first into the water. Now mind you this is all happening in slow motion but I can not get my other hand on him fast enough he was like a slippery fish...have you ever tried to hold one of those??? His face was only in there for like a second and I pulled him out but he was crying by then so I took him out and wrapped him in a towel until he settled down and then he went right back to playing in the tub...
Ok, who else has a story...
