Have you ever laughed and felt like a bad mommy?

My oldest son was on his way back to his room from the restroom when all of a sudden he gave a loud, howling yelp.

Turning around, I asked, "What happened, baby?"

Adriyan: I hurt myself!

Me: How?

Adriyan: I hit myself in the pee-pee!!

Me: !!!!!O.O!!!!! *tries desperately not to laugh* snicker *fail*

So, mommies, has your children ever told you something that you REALLY shouldn't laugh at but you just can't help it for a second?

  • Definitely but I rarely feel bad. When my son walks into a wall (he's 9) yeah its funny. We didn't just put that there. Or when they fall down over invisible lines. They have my natural grace I guess. A couple of weeks ago we were at a greek festival and my 6 y/o kept going down an inflatable water slide/bounce house. To get out of it you had to scootch out a little hole. Each and every time plop on his butt into a puddle he went.

  • YES! haha But if I do laugh, more with my nephews bc they are older, I tell them why I am laughing and sometimes they laugh and sometimes I say sorry for laughing.

  • If he isnt seriously injured and I laugh then no I dont feel bad. I laugh even when I stub my own toe. But when he just stubs a toe or something I laugh so he knows its not that big of a deal. Obviously if it is a serious injury there isnt anything funny about that.

  • lol When my oldest song (almost two) does something stupid that results in a bump or something I tend to laugh. It doesn't make us bad parents.. It's just funny.
