1 Bump

have you ever accidently hurt your child?

a few minutes ago I went to move my toddler out from under the computer desk and I bumped his head on the bottom and then again on the edge as I was pulling him up to my lap to comfort him!! :C I felt SO bad. :C

I feel so bad for my babies, having such a klutzy mom :P

  • That's nothing. I shut my middle daughter's head in the sliding van door once (she was about 5 at the time). We were at the beach and she was supposed to be standing next to me while I got the stuff out of the van. As soon as I pulled (and I pulled hard) on the door to close it, she decided to stick her head in there to tell me about something (a shovel I think) that I had forgotten and before I could halt the door, it slammed on her head. I was horrified and thought for sure that I had killed her. She was screaming and and I was screaming and luckily she was okay- no blood, only bumps and bruises. I will NEVER forget that.

  • I hit my DD head regularly while loading her into the car. Yes I said regularly. I really hope I don't knock her brain loose! I don't hit it hard!!

  • OMG IhartU, I would have just died! I probably would have been a wreck for the rest of the day if that happened. :( :( :( Poor kiddo, and poor mama!!!

    I've definitely had a lot of accidents with my kids, it's awful. One of the worst (that has happened more than once!) is taking a corner too sharply when I'm holding my youngest DD and whacking her head on the corner of a doorjamb! I swear, I should pad every corner in my house.

  • I knocked my baby over when she was like 16 months old and still wobbly when she ran :( She was chasing my mom's dog through the house and I tried to move out of her way, and she tried to dodge me, we collided. I almost cried, but she didn't even seem to notice lol. I've bumped her head a few times, too. She's (thankfully) as hard headed as her father, though, so she never seemed to notice that, either.
