I am avoiding just going grocery shopping with bug 
with fear that someone might call CPS {child protection services} on me

Yeah your freaking out
& rightly so

My childs head looks like I pushed her down the stairs several times
I haven't.

This whole "look momma I am gonna walk" & "look momma look at me hold on with one hand then dance like michael jackson on speed"
Each of these ends..& not well.. mostly with her hitting her head on something
your thinking..what kinda mom are you?
Hey, you should see my knees; her bruises are as bad as my carpet burns on my knees from my dives trying to catch my poor baby from another fall.

On top of that, which is where I kinda need advice
I babysit a almost 2 year old
& finds it fun to bash my chids head into things or kick her head
I of course stop this as soon as I walk into room
& have a niece that is for some reason massively jealous of my daughter & bashed her head into the vent because she was  "in her way" 
I also found her with her hand over her mouth the other with her hand on her forehead telling her shut up!
I seriously almost died, I was bawling trying to call her dad. 
She is 4 by the way.
She also is always telling me to "just put her to bed, gosh"

My poor girl cant catch a break.
Each parent just kinda of giggles & says "bad {insert name}, say your sorry!}
Sweet well that did alot, I said the said thing, & followed in a time out.
Now I am not suggesting they beat their child; but I am getting to the brink
I mean seriously I would put up a picture, but its awful & you might start to think I did push her down the stairs.
I didnt.

So, what do I do?
The hubs says I shouldnt babysit them anymore
but hey I worked in a daycare, if she was there the same thing would be happening
its just "kids being kids"
but then he reminds me, yeah but we keep her home.
grant it 50% of these battle wounds are self inflicted from those "hey mommas"
but what do I do about these bite-size bullies?


  1. wow. that must be really hard. i cannot imagine what i would do if i had walked in to a little girl doing that to my baby. i just cannot imagine. as mothers, our first instinct is to protect. i too, would have bawled my little eyes out. just to ever see them being hurt or in any sort of pain, is heartbreaking.

    tough situation to be in. hope it all works out!

  2. That is a really tough one! I often babysit my nieces and nephews, I have a 3 y/o niece and nephew that I see the most and they aren't physically mean to my son (18 months) but they can be verbally mean at times or expect that my son understands them when he often doesn't. I would recommend using time outs. 1 minute of time out per how old they are. Set your oven timer and then explain to them why they had a time out and if they do it again, they will have another time out. It works like a charm for my family.

  3. My personal opinion is to stop watching the other kids. You cannot help when she falls on her own but if, heaven forbid, one of the other girls does something that seriously hurts her you will never be able to forgive yourself thinking "what if" you kept her away from them.

  4. Oh my gosh, this post breaks my heart! I am so sorry your baby had to go through that, that is awful. When my now 6 year old niece was around 3 she went through a stage where she would bite my then 2 1/2 year old nephew so bad it would leave welts and bruises on him. It's not an easy situation for anyone. :/


shucks, thanks the comment!
i looove hearing from you!
