cheer up 🙂  You’re human and allowed to make mistakes/be forgetful.  Tomorrow will be a better day 🙂

It’s an easy mistake. A really easy one…and how many hundreds of days have you REMEMBERED to do it? Your daughter will not look back on this as the defining moment of her childhood, please don’t feel guilty.

Cheer up! I’m sure you are a sweet mama. I know most of us do not deal with a situation similar to yours. I also know “the bee” has been hard on you lately.

 

Is there any way you can get a couple extra so you and your husband don’t have to deal with this every night? I’m sure it’s easy to overlook. I would also consider this a teaching moment or possible future teaching moment (for lack of better words). I know it’s hard to think of now, but your little (for now!) girl will be on her own eventually. Maybe this is a good time to start the discussion of everything that’s needed to keep her in tip-top shape like mommy and daddy have for the past while.

 

Anyway, it’s just a thought. I’m not sure how old she is, but I just thought I’d mention it.

No, you would only be a lousy mother if this happened every day!  You and your husband are human and will make mistakes.  Honestly it sounds like you take fantastic care of your kids on a daily basis so don’t beat yourself up over this.

The fact that you feel so lousy about this is pretty indicative of the fact that you’re a great mom. This is a crummy thing to say, but it’s good that you feel bad. You were so upset that you posted about it, chastising yourself! Let’s be serious- you are an amazing mother with a daughter who LOVES you!

Wow, you are a fantastic mother! You are doing a great job and, in the greater scheme of things, all of us make a mistake one time or another…. You are human after all, but I dont think anyone or even you should question your love or dedication as a mother.
