So yesterday after work me and my bbd went to work on our house which is almost finished and I didn't get home until 9 p.m. so I ate took a shower and took my 8 month old son with me to my room. I tried to put him in his crib since I was so tired I just wanted to sleep but he wouldn't stay so I put out all the pillows as a barrier and put him on the bed with me. I figured he'd play a bit and fall asleep (he usually does this) and I'd put him in the crib. But I feel asleep and I was awakened by a thud...I shot straight up in the bed and discovered him face down on the floor next to it. I almost didn't want to pick him up because I was afraid to look at his face in that split second I imagined I'd pick him up to see a mangled face. But no he had no bumps no nothing....luckily one of the pillows had broken his fall. Now I have my mother and bbd mostly telling me oh you should have know better.....now look my intention wasn't to fall asleep or leave him on the bed alone...hello I know better....it really was an accident.
So am I a horrible mother????......or is it just a thing that happens to everyone?
