What is your most memorable parenting fail? I think I have more fails than wins, but my three year old was being really quiet in the playroom and I hadn’t checked on her in a while. I never thought much of it since she’s usually a pretty quiet kid and went about my business in the kitchen. Finally I needed to take the trash out and went outside; my three year old was sound asleep on the front porch. At first I was terrified because she was laying on the concrete motionless, but as soon as I realized she was asleep I started cracking up. I never heard her open the door, shut the door, or anything. But you bet I took pictures of it!!!
