lost internet connection for a couple days..but its good too see i got so many replys.
firstly, i would just like to add that my friend was at the same table and the babies were laying right next to each other, he WAS supervised. She was watching him, and looked down to wipe her child's face and when she looked up she saw this leg disappearing over the edge. She felt horrible, but she's alright now.
To all the concerned mothers asking if he was okay, thank you for your concern. It's as if nothing happened to him and he was back to normal within a few minutes (forgot to add that in the end as well, lol...sorry).
As for the name calling comment... yes, it was childish.. but a) it was the easiest way to tell them apart and b) i just felt like it...if you don't like it, tough. Don't post to me anymore.
I wasn't shifting the blame onto them. In no way did I say 'it was their fault my son fell off the table'. I just didnt like the fact they seemed so impacted by it and didnt bother coming to see if everything was okay or anything. I know personally if I ever saw a child fall off the table I would be over there as soon as possible to comfort them, it's the most horrible feeling in the world. (And yes to all, I am OBSESSIVE about it happening again, lol).
I am totally aware it wasnt the right thing to do, and no, there are no screws loose, and bring on child services. My baby has a clean home, daily feeds, nice clothes, a clean bed, daily bathes and all the toys in the world he could hope for. He is in no way mistreated or harmed.
Thank you to the couple of people that PMd me with support as well. Good to see that most people on here can give support when it's needed. I didn't really post it up here to be judged or for support or anything..just wanted to share what happened because I felt so rotten and ...well, i just wanted to tell someone.
No, he didn't get taken to the Drs. I went and saw mum at work, bawling my eyes out (when a heap of pen pushers were in meetings and what not, lol) and showed her and had a nice cup of tea and a long talk. In the 3 minute walk it took to get from the pool to mums work, he was smiling, laughing and running around. Mum's had 5 kids and most of us have had any injury possible (and the doctors couldnt fit us in until 'tomorrow', theyre sO backed up). She had a look at him and said there was nothing wrong.. and shock and behold!! there isnt!! ~puts hand over mouth in suprise~ He landed on a towel and stuff..there was a bit of cushioning...i guess i can explain things a bit dramatic as well..
I think that was all i had to say... nothing else is coming to mind.. maybe i got his brain damage? tongue and as for the 'its not a joke' ..i make jokes out of things.. its how we cope. He's fine, i've learnt my lesson and he loves his swimming lessons.
I understand where you others are coming from, and although the term 'bad mother' wasnt said, i no you were meaning it..but seriously, i dont care about the judging thing. judge me. i dont know you and therefore it dont phase me. i have a happy life, a healthy bub n a great partner. im on top of the world.
cheers and hugs to the 'not so perfect' mothers!! bubble wrap aint on ur weekly shopping list!! grin thanks again ya'll.
