NOT ME!! So my four year old had a poster she had to color for school. It was one of those get the whole family together kind of things. Well we were finishing it up last night and I get her in bed after it's done and had this warm and fuzzy good mommy feeling when I got to set her bag and everything out for today and realize I haven't looked at her folder all weekend. Now USUALLY I open her bag and look at her folder as soon as we get home after I pick her up from school. Well low and behold there was another project for them to do with their families that was due today!! Well the warm fuzzy feeling was quickly replaced by the I'm a horrible mother feeling :( So my husband suggested that we get up a little early to get the project done and that sounded like a good idea. Well my alarm is on my phone and my phone just shut off in the middle of the night so I got woke up by a train at 7am...we need to leave the house at 7:30. Lilly still needed a bath and all that so I was thinking it was pointless to even try to finish the project. Well I ended up saying screw the bath we have to get this done. Well we got it done and she had fun doing it, but I feel horrible! I'm already teaching my child to procrastinate! UGH!!

Haha thanks ladies. I just called my sister and was telling her how bad of a mother I am and told her the story. She has a five month old so she doesn't have much experience on the mommy thing yet and she laughed at me and told me I am dramatic. Bwahaha!!

It happens, mama. Don't beat yourself up! And a skipped bath now and then is no big deal at all. My kids only take a bath every other day during the school year. During the summer they need them more often when they've been playing outside getting dirty.

Relax! Project done. Lesson learned. Not that it might not happen again, but I'll bet it will be a while! LOL :) (((HUGS)))
