I absolutely love being a mommy. There's nothing that makes me happier. Still, after having my first being that I was only 18 at the time I had a lot of growing up to do. When I turned 19 (legal drinking age here) I went to the bar with a bunch of my friends. Seeing as I hardly drank before that and I drank a lot (hell I was celebrating with my friends, having a good time and getting out of the house without the baby for once why not) too much actually. I was so sick that night.. haha. Anyway, my worst "bad mommy" moment would be the next day. I was so hung-over and watching my 9 month old baby alone. All I wanted to do was sleep but I couldn't. I spent most of the day on the couch while my son watched tv and played with his toys on the floor. I felt so bad about it afterward but it was all I could do at the time. Cleaned up after that. Sure I went drinking a couple of times but no where the amount I had that night. Now I'm 23 with 2 boys (5 yrs and 6.5 mos) and I hardly ever drink. I'm not saying it's terrible to drink just so long as the babies/kids are well taken care of.

The reason for this post is that maybe if we post some of our mistakes others might think twice about somethings they would do and hopefully not make them as well.

my worst mommy moment~i worked all night til 7am, i got off and went home and my husband was home so i went right to sleep no problem!! later that day i woke up to banging on my door it was a lady from a couple houses down she was bringing my kids to me because they were down the road (thank god we live down a dirt road and theres only a few homes)anyways i thanked her and was freaking out my husband was missing and my kids were down the road while i was sleeping omg i cried and cried ive never been sooo sick to my stomach ever..... my husband had gone to the store and said he woke me up before he left but i sleep really hard especially after working all night so i chewed him out and made sure he knew if he ever had to leave like that again to make sure i was up and walking around!! so needless to say i dont work nights anymore unless absolutely necessary!!! i will never ever in my life let that happen again and i was lucky that they didnt get hurt!!!!

My worst mommy moment had to be the day i moved out of my bf's house...that night i got into a big fight with my bf's sisters and i was trying to feed my daughter ( who was in her high chair eating) and i was making dinner at the same time..and they approached me yelling and cursing and since i had alot of anger towards them (long story) of course i stood up for myself (for once) and was yelling back at them..i was so into the argument that afterwards i realized my daughter was in the room still and had been in the middle of all the yelling...that night she woke up crying so bad and i knew i prob scared her with all the yelling from that day and was prob having a nightmare...that made me feel so bad :(

My worst moment was definitely when my son fell off of his change table-the second time! I couldn't believe it it scared the heck out of me the first time and he landed on his bum. The second time was only a few days later, i was using my body to block him and he still managed it. That time he landed on his side and it was all I could do to keep from crying and scaring him more! Now IF I change him on the change table I never let go!

I'm happy, I can hande getting drunk pretty much.
If i go out, i want to get drunk *lol*
but i get up in the morning as usual, having taken an aspinine before going to sleep, one after waking up and three cups of very strong coffee - and just drinking mineral water the whole day.
of couse i feel different those days but i spend time with my boy as usual.

my worst moment was, as i lost my son in a shopping mall - last only a couple of minutes, but felt like hours :-(

I had my daughter when I was 18 aswell, she is 8 months old now and i went out for the first time only a month ago. I had a good time but didn't drink just in case i wouldn't be able to look after my daughter in the morning. I got home at 3am and had to wake up at 7. I woke up in the morning with a really sore throat and a major headache from being up late and waking up early. Wont be doing that again!

well i had my son when i was 16, and for the 1st year after he was born i spent just about every wakeing moment with him....when he hit the year mark i was tired of being at home all the time so i started going out with my friends more often, well pretty soon one thing led to another and i ended up going out with my friends pretty much every day for a month or two and leaving him with my grandma while i hung out....i missed so much in those couple months, like his first step and his first sentence etc. i regret it SOOO much now!!! and that was my worst mommy moment(s) ever :(
