    Yep - I'm on mat leave and DS1 still goes 2 days. Completely guilt free, especially since he enjoys it.

    Don't feel bad for laughing. It is a bizarre thing to happen. The worst bit is that the cat belongs to the people that used to live up the road. He moved in when they moved out so I had to call them and let them know.

    Worlds worst mummy day over here.

    Our lovely postie often hand delivers our mail to the door, so DS1 can go toot the horn on his bike. We were upstairs today when he arrived, I had a sick DS2 in my arms, so asked DS1 to follow me 'quick quick' down the stairs.

    I get to the front door and all I hear is 'thump thump thump' - he'd slipped and rolled down the stairs I got to him before he hit the floorboards at the bottom thank god, but I feel so incredibly guilty. It could have happened any day, but the fact the very first time was after me telling him to hurry up makes me feel terrible. He's been going up and down on his own for a year with no accidents, so I didn't even think about it.

    He's ok, he cried more out of shock I think and only had a very small red mark on his nose, but still....bad mummy.

    My beautiful 7 month old dd resulted after 5 years and 5 ivf cycles and is my heaven and earth. She is also hard work, she doesn't sleep day or night and hates to be left alone to play EVER. I got so frustrated with her whinging and crying today that 3 times, before 12 o clock, I had to put her in her cot and let her cry while I went out the front and got some fresh air. I just couldn't take her any more.
    I hate myself for feeling like that.

    I recall doing exactly the same thing with my DS1.It feels awful at the time,but honestly the best thing to do is leave them somewhere safe and just walk away for a bit.You did the right thing

    Agreed Grebbeci if it makes you feel any better Im pretty sure most of us here can admit to having to put bub in a safe place to regroup. I did this with DS on more than one occasion and it was always so I could scream into a pillow or bawl my eyes out. Yes at the time I felt like the ****test mum out there but it was either that or lose my mind.

    You do what you need to do to gather yourself...mummies need a break too If anything this thread helped me realise I wasnt the big monster I had made myself out to be. I think we all just need a big hug and to forgive ourselves for our moments of weakness..we aren't super human. You are doing a wonderful job Grebbeci

    And Pesca do not beat yourself up.. accidents happen and this certainly Isn't something you should blame yourself for! Xoxo
