The other day I fell asleep in the afternoon, I didn't mean to but I did and then I woke up at 3pm! boy did I panic, not only was I picking my own child up from primary school but also two other friends who were joining us for a small tea party and play date. I actually arrived at the school with ruffled hair, all puffed out and red. I explained to the teacher that I had fallen asleep.

Natalie from plutoniumsox.com says ''My husband wrapped my little girl up in a towel and popped her onto her toy box when she got out of the bath while he grabbed her changing mat. Then we both watched her topple off sideways, it was like it was in slow motion but we were both too shocked to do anything about it and she couldn't put her arms out to stop herself because she was wrapped in the towel.''
Louise from www.squishedblueberries.com tells us ''I turned up with my toddler an hour late for a christmas party I had booked for her because I got the time wrong. There was only half an hour left of the party. I was pregnant, a few days off my due date and when she told me we were late I just burst into tears in the middle of a room full of mums and kids, I think she felt sorry for me because she hurriedly gave me my money back and luckily we hadn't missed Father Christmas and as far as my daughter was concerned she had been to a Christmas party so she was happy, but me and my hormones were devastated!.''
Jessica from www.babiafi.co.uk says ''Putting so much shopping on the pram handles it tipped up when I let go - in the middle of town! Not my greatest parenting moment... At least she was strapped in!''
