Well, I have an unsteady rattan end table and he has to be told constantly no, don't shake the table. So that's what we were doing, he's got a leg of it shaking and I've another leg trying to hold it steady but then he jerked it and a half full soda and my iced coffee fell off and spilled absolutely everywhere. I lost it. I did what you never do. I hit out of anger. I popped the side of his head, my tiny LO who trusts me to protect and comfort him:(
Of course I was horrified at my action and after apologizing (so what?) and comforting, loving on him, I put him to bed right then for his safety and my sanity. It doesn't matter that I was stressed,had a headache, feeling depression or any of it... You never lash out in anger at your babies. I am so so sorry and I will never ever ever do it again.
