10 Minor Mom Fails

We all have them. Parenting moments that aren’t really BAD, per se, but aren’t all that good either. It’s usually a little thing like realizing the baby’s shirt has been on backwards all day. Or you put mismatched socks on her deliberately because finding a matched pair would take too long. Stuff that (probably) won’t warp your baby for life but certainly doesn’t make you particularly Pinterest-worthy. Unless the board was called something like “Stuff Moms Do Because Life Isn’t A Pinterest Board”.

I’m definitely guilty of these little transgressions and I bet you are, too. Click on through to see some of the things I bet we’ve all done once or twice! (Unless it’s just me, in which case don’t tell me ok?)

    Munch!
    You realized the baby was eating something she dropped from the high chair earlier in the day and decided it was easier to let her have it than try and take it away.
