Confession Session

  • Every time I look at my son I worry that I’m missing something – a sign or something that signals something is wrong.  I struggle with calling or not calling the doctor for every little thing in fear of being “that” mother.
  • I struggle desperately with my temper when my daughter is misbehaving.
  • If your child has a fever and you’re giving her Tylenol or Motrin, do you wake her during the night for his/her next dose? or do you wait until they have woken?
  • Can a baby selectively throw up? My son threw up prune juice after a breast milk feeding session.  He also threw up curdled milk right after a feeding session.
  • Can a too tight diaper cause infrequent stools?
  • When you brush your teeth, do you simply spit after or rinse?
  • Just realized I ask a LOT of stupid questions
  • Just let the pediatrician give my son a new form of medication or vaccination that I had no idea what it was or what it was about.  Good thing I trust her eh? Something tells me a better mom would have asked more questions… sigh!
  • My daughter used my husband entire bottle of shaving astringent to brush her teeth and although I noticed the empty bottle when I went to the bathroom, I didn’t put two and two together until 12 hours later.  While poison control said she was fine, I wanted to tag myself with a big #MOMFAIL
  • is donating milk to two different milk banks now because when I applied neither were replying in a timely fashion and all of a sudden… now I wonder if I am allowed to do that and if I should come forward and tell them so.  I DO have plenty of milk for both though.
  • is feeling a little depressed that we will not be having a 100 Day Celebration (traditional Chinese rite of passage for the firstborn son) for my son because of financial constraints that is all my fault.
  • Didn’t even know under was an option for toilet paper.  I always secretly thought my husband was an idiot for putting the toilet paper under, after all when you go to a hotel it’s always OVER.
