This made me feel a little bit less worried about being a first time mom. At least if I mess something up I'm in good company.

From first hand experience as a first time mom ... well the most embarassing moments are at the top of the list. To help I thought I lost DS when he was 2 months old in my house. I laid him down and went to straighten up the house. Well when he had been quiet and I had finished in the kitchen I went to go check on him. Well I thought I laid him in the living room ... not there. Then I checked my bed and thought he rolled off (keep in mind at this time I am in a COMPLETE panic) and I looked under the bed, in his bassinet, on my bed, under covers ... freaking out. So then I go check in his crib ... there he was snoozing contently away ... I felt like such an idiot.

Grad lurking :) I love saying that!

LOL these stories were hilarious!
So far, I think the craziest thing I have done is calling DD kitty kitty kitty and another time started to dangle a ribbon in front of her (it's part of my robe). Both times I felt like such an idiot and was glad no one was around, and I blame it on total lack of sleep!

I guess after being mommy to only a cat for 5 years I can get confused.
