Today, in a state of sleep deprivation, I decided it would be a good idea to let my 11mo eat mince, with her hands, while sitting on my lap, in the lounge room. Yep, I'm just that smart! I'd take a photo of the resulting disaster but photographic evidence will make it harder for me to pretend I don't know what happened when dh gets home.
Anyone else making poor parenting decisions today?

Not so serious poor parenting decisions.

I have a huge headache so put on a dvd for DS and DD while I closed my eyes on the couch.
10 minutes later I woke up to DS yelling at DD for pulling 80 wipes out of a new pack.

Not today but last night. Dd currently can't walk, so se is even more high maintenance than usual. Last night I was trying to cool tea and she was just under my feet and getting harms way so I put her up on the bench so he could "help" me. Apart from spilling frozen peas all over the floor she was ok.
But cue today- all day long she points to the bench and asks "up dere?"

I'm always giving ds food while he's walking around. You'd think I would have learnt when I ended up with vegemite toast all over EVERYTHING!

I've got my hospital bag packed for ds2 arrival next week and ds1 constantly gets everything out daily to play with toothbrush etc. today I let him play with the nipple cream to avoid a tantrum but about 5 mins later found he had got the lid open and it was in his mouth. Don't think he ate much and figure if it's ok for newborns to feed after using it must be fine!

You know the times when you just can't be bothered with bed time so you prolong it. The longer I prolong it, the harder it is to get DS to bed. And then I pay for it the next day with an overtired grumpy child.

We do a lot of eating on the couch in our house....I just can't be bothered with the tantrums to get him into his booster seat at the table most days. So now we just pop a towel over DS's spot on the couch, then shake it off outside once he's done. :/
