I fell down a flight of stairs while holding my baby. Luckily I landed on my back and he thought it was funny. My son has rolled off the bed before when I had my back turned. He also bonked his head while I was rough housing with him, We all make mistakes. Besides, the guy in the car should know the rules of the road-pedestrians first.

We all make mistakes. Trust me this is the first of many, but just wait until your kids are putting themselves in danger and you look away for a moment. You did not get hurt, neither did your daughter. You are both safe, and you are not a bad mother.

You are just fine. We all have our (I call them) "stupidity" moments. ALL OF US!!!

The important thing is that you and baby are unhurt and safe.

If anything, the person who should be ashamed of themselves is the adult male who felt it necessary to heap verbal abuse on a young mother!

Keep your chin up, Ducky! You're doing fine as a momma!
